...it's a GE Smith ! **MODS : please don't dump this post in the GE Smith Owner's Gulag faaaaaar below. I posted the serial # there so - all is good** The power and far reach of the TDPRI. Posted a grousing thread about how there are virtually no GE Smith's on the used market and a day later Herman aka Slim Chance PM'ed me about one that been in a store for years at a mom and pop near him. How old-school is this ? Stephen there was cool, weighed it for me, little shop-worn but I'm not precious about dings, plastic still on. Ship it out ! * Side note : I've had 150+ guitars. Including this guitar ? 5 were brand-new. Gotta be special for me to fork up brand-new money on something. I like it. A Lot. 7 lbs even and balanced as hell and - since I once owned two early Fender steels I have no problem with the fret markers - I love 'em. One thing people don't bring up is how thin the paint is on these things - see the ash grain right through it (like the old ones). Love that. Dreams come true - thanks again Herman !
