    Hi guys,
    I can get one used force good price. Is it a good idea?
    I could see myself playing a tune with lots of SlapBack and Tremolo on Solojobs. If they ever come back. F7553B6D-5A40-4DD7-98F2-F106181DE742.png

    I saw one of those up in Syracuse. Nice guitar, I almost bought it.

    I always back the acquisition of weird guitars.

    How good of a price? I'm a Gretsch fan but those are weird. I'd probably buy one if it was dirt cheap.

    I remember those and also almost bought one. It's all kinds of right in the weird department.

    Wow! haven't seen that before.
    probably not very loud without an amp though.
    can you try it first?

    I can't tell you how many kinds of wrong I think that is.

    I'd buy it in a heartbeat if the right deal came along. Then it would be the only guitar I would ever take to earnest folkie jams.

    It is cool looking. I've had a few Gretsch guitars with that Bigsby, and tuning stability would be a concern for me.

    That is so weird, get it. It's everything all at once.

    It’s kind of like a Cold War-era Soviet attempt to totally outclass a Danelectro Convertible. Like it’s wired for five-phase 650VAC operation, and also has booster rockets. It’s the Ekranoplan of acoustic-electric guitars.

    I love it, is what I’m saying.
