    I've played this very guitar at Peach's. It's a good one.

    great!

    Duane Eddy is still cool. Melody and tone all day long.

    That's a cool coincidence! When was it?
    When I opened the case the bridge had shifted completely to the point it was reversed angle from normal. It's possible it happened during shipping but the strings were under full tension so it seemed strange to me and I thought maybe the guitar had been in storage and not set up for a long time? But the strings looked pretty new.

    Apr 1982 Guitar Player has Jimmy Johnson/Muscle Shoals story by Dan Forte. Just read it, and Mr Johnson says he used his 6120 up until 1970 and strung it with 13s.

    Hey, I almost bought that one from Peach, but went for an R8 Les Paul instead.
    I'll get one......one day! Congrats.
