  1. Great Toni. Keep the kid playing and away from girls!!!!!! He'll go far, maybe even to Ohio.......lol.
  2. YUP! Same looking guitar with less stuff! and less price!!!!!! I like it, I'll report back Wednesday after it arrives. I hate ordering online and then wonder for days if it will arrive safe and undamaged. Then I hope it's what I expected and sounds like, without seeing and trying in a shop and taking home if I like it. This new way of living sucks, lets get back to the old days when you could easily go to a shop in your neighborhood and try this shit out. The "Humpback inlays on the frets and the Bigsby sold me on this guitar for this price. After checking numerous sites, I can't find this model anywhere! Maybe it's discontinued? I don't know, but I like it and they only have 1 left after I bought mine.
  3. I just ordered another guitar today, should be here Wednesday 2/26/20. I told you I was looking at a sister Gibson with 2 P 90's. Then I mentioned a couple Gretsch double cutaways, 1 natural wood grain and 2 Tahiti red with Bigsby. Well I just ran across a Gretsch DC with 2 HB pickups with Bigsby B5 and Humpblock fretboard inlays (like George Harrison's Duo Jet) in Firebird red that I love, so I ordered it. It was only $499!! It's basswood instead of mahogany like the ones for $100 more, but hey, Fender uses a lot of basswood for their guitars too. And Fender now owns Gretsch. Anyway, here's a picture of the guitar I just ordered.
  4. Yikes, I just tuned up this Gibson and plugged it into my Vox Beatle amp and it sounds amazing. There's a P90's crunch even at low watts. I can go from 2 watts to 20 to 50 and up to 200 watts on rotary knob with my amp head and 4X12 Beatle cab. This is great!!!!!! Here's a pix of 1 of my amps.
  5. Yeah, I'm not crazy about gig bags, but a lot of guitars today come with nothing! I hate that, all guitars should come with hard case, God knows they charge enough to include them.
  6. I'm still thinking about ordering the sister to the JR that has 2 P90's. I'm just worried that they will both sound almost identical besides looking the same. No reason to have 2 identical guitars that sound alike. There is an inexpensive & expensive way to get another Double Cutaway that would sound completely different than the Gibson, and that's with Gretsch. Electromatic's are $499 without Bigsby and $599 with Bigsby. Then there are the high end Gretsch's that cost up to $2700 for the Malcolm Young model. I like the "natural wood finish" the best, it's a new model available for pre-order and it looks like an easy fix to install a Bigsby and roller bridge. $499 Gretsch Electromatic $599 Gretsch Electromatic with Bigsby $2700 Gretsch Malcolm Young model https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/G6131MYSJ--gretsch-professional-g6131-my-malcolm-young-signature-jet-natural https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/G5232TDJFTTR--gretsch-g5232t-electromatic-double-jet-ft-tahiti-red https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/G5222EDJAN--gretsch-g5222-electromatic-double-jet-aged-natural
