  1. It's more expensive because it's a really rare "Dual Tone"...
  2. The Standard is the brand...uh...standard, so typically what I'd recommend, but all suggestions are good. Try a Korina Vector. Because everybody needs a Vee.
  3. One of the tone pots pulls up to do that on mine.
  4. Not Marble (which was a $600 upcharge for the O'Connor treatment!), but a no upcharge B&W Granite finish. Still a good price for a boomered Cali, but looks like some questionable neck damage...
  5. I am REALLY tempted to score a FreeWay switch for my old '81 LP Custom. I haven't heard any reviews from people here, so not sure it's worth the plunge or not, but it might get me to overhaul that one and start playing it again.

    Zemaitis production guitars?

    I almost pulled the trigger when a friend sold his Shell Top a decade ago. He had a metal top and a plain black one that he was gigging with more, and the price was really great at the time too. Not sure why I didn't... (Hamer Content: Turdus sighting)
  7. You mean "He's kinb of a duck".
  8. I can weigh in on Russ' Honey Standard...it plays as great as it looks!
  9. In all fairness, there just aren't that many of these out there.
  10. I'll bet Slash could come up with some good hooks on one of those.
  11. It could be played in a double minor key.
  12. I’m going to say a Chap V Bass...34” scale and that’s a heftier neck profile than most 8 and 12 strings! 😜
  13. Not one question about the weight or acoustic voice?
