Couldn't find one so I'll start one.
Here's my 70th.
Bee-yoo-tiful! I should have mine in the next couple of weeks, will post some photos and a write-up when I get it. I'm moving up from a Squier Classic Vibe 50's
Just ordered mine, these look fantastic. Your NGD thread and report out convinced me.
Also just ordered mine. I should get it mid February... can’t wait... a dream guitar to own!
I'm picking up mine tomorrow and my custom shop heavy relic should arrive in July lol
I saw one today in Absolute Music (Poole) and it looked gorgeous. Very similar shade to my avatar Esquire, but without the wear/cracking mine has. I'm sure they will be very popular; much nicer IMHO than the more pumpkin shades of 'Butterscotch'.
Just picked mine up a few hours ago:
These are so beautiful. Fender did an A grade job.
Are 'All' Broadcasters welcome to this club? The title implies that 'all' are in fact welcome.
OK, that being the case, here is my own 'Broadcaster', made by the George (Fullerton) and Leo (Fender) Company, and actually signed by the man himself ...... Leo Fender.
This particular "Broadcaster" run, and the only run made by a Leo Fender owned Company after the initial short run of those early fifties Broadcasters were introduced, was made in 1985, and did not become the subject of any legal claims made by the Gretsch Company or anyone else. It is actually a fine guitar in it's own way, and is one of the most prized of all the G&L made guitars. Not sure, but pretty sure that it was only available in black. A 'prized' possession.
who could refuse a Leo inspected guitar into the club? Welcome all.
That guitar is so cool! I've never seen one before.
My one missing photo with the great man's signed approval.
Mine has suddenly shipped (was expecting March) and should arrive tomorrow. A pleasant surprise!
Mine’s coming tomorrow. I’m a little nervous since I’m seeing a lot of these come in at 8 to 9 lbs. I have a good return option on mine if I get a boat anchor.
Keep in mind that original Broadcasters were not featherweights. My definition of "boat anchor" would be a 12lb Norlin Les Paul. But I get it, there is a point where a guitar is uncomfortably heavy. The market is currently obsessed with sub 8lb guitars which is a little unfortunate as there are many wonderful sounding 8lb + guitars.
Can't wait to hear your observations, mine comes on Thursday!!
Dealer pics of the one I ordered. 7lbs. should arrive on Saturday the 15th.
Just arrived. Weighs in at 7 1/2 almost exactly, ready to play right out of the case. I was really impressed with that. About to sit down and get to know it. Love the wood grain on these. Way more impressive in person than in photos. Fretboard is pretty rolled so that will take some getting used to, but first impression is overwhelmingly positive. Let's see how it sounds!
I had no idea these existed. I'm blown away. I think it's even cooler that it's G&L. I don't know if it's true, but I always thought Leo was kinda going outlaw, like "I'll show 'em I can still build guitars. Even if it ain't branded Fender."
Surprise! It showed up today instead! I was at home for lunch when it came. Too cold here in Alaska ignore the "24hr leave in the box label," so I'll open it this evening! LOL! (it's not a D28 for crimeny sakes!)
