    I've been shopping for awhile and got a pretty good deal on her. She was a floor model but has no fret wear and not a single mark on her.

    I was initially worried about getting used to the C-Shaped neck but I've honestly come to love the neck on her. Couldn't be happier.

    Thanks!

    I've been primarily playing a Gibson R0 Les Paul and I was a little worried I'd have a hard time adjusting to the neck shape when I first was giving the model a go at GC. But I really liked the way they sounded. After only a week I'm just as comfortable (if not more) playing her then my Les Paul.

    My only regret is that I didn't buy a tele sooner.

    I really like it, but I don't understand why Fender doesn't get the pickuard right on these ri's. There should be a small bevel where the guard meets the neck at the dots side. That's real 60's for you...

    Congrats.. I have the blond on my list.. But the CAR might win me over, am a sucker for red guitars.


    I thought that was on later models.. Easy enough to fix if you're inclined.

    I have to say, that is a nice looking guitar even though I am a G&L fellow.
