I purchased a 1979 natural in 2016 and it's kind of like the 1965 Rambler station wagon I learned to drive in. It was the dorkiest, uncool thing to drive in those days. Oh, how I wish I had one today. Now I own many quality guitars. Martin HD28, 1978 American Standard Strat, 2007 Gibson SG T, 2016 Gibson LPJ, 2013 Breedlove SR25 pro, 2007 Fender Showmaster, 1999 Mark 1v, Mesa boogie, 2000 Fender twin, 1972 Though heavey, My opinion of the T60 is that it is right at the top of the quality scale. It stays in tune consistently. Every tone imaginable can be dialed in. The thin neck suits me well. I also love the case with the two storage compartments. This is the only case I've ever seen with that kind of storage space. I'd put this T60 up against any guitar out there for playability, tone, and overall quality. I understand how "younger players" think it's ugly and too heavy, but to me it's like a 1960''s Rambler wagon, way cool today! I added the T60 to my collection for $375! Incredible piece of history and quality for the money.
