  1. I am going to be in Denver all week for training and am hoping to break away to hit some guitar shops while I am out there. Any recommendations?
  2. They did a reunion tour a year or so ago. Obviously without Lester. Austin local and B3 player for Jimmy Vaughan, Mike Flanigan, posted about his tenure with the band and the reunion tour. He took over for Paul Size when Paul had had enough of Lester's destructive ways. They were definitely lightning in a bottle. I bought the King King CD when it first came out and it was all I listed to for a long time.
  3. That is a very interesting build. Korina is the perfect choice of wood for a shapely creation like this. Congrats on the score.
  4. I figured if I was going to replace the bridge, I might as well replace the Tremolo. The stock one had the arm sitting too low whereas the new one put the arm right at the height I like.
  5. I have this same setup on my Bilt Zaftig which has been my main gigging guitar for the past year or more so I can testify that the Mastery bridge is amazing. You won't be disappointed.
  6. That would explain the high prices. They were a limited run. Not sure how many though. Totally agree on the term "mint".
  7. Apparently the stores around here are asking list because I haven't seen any of these for less around here.
  8. I have been on the lookout for a good deal on the 60th Anniversary Jazzmaster. I think they are pretty cool looking but being as they are made in Mexico, I don't think they are worth $1,199.00 asking price. My patience finally paid off when I found one locally on FB Marketplace for half that amount. It was still in new condition with the plastic on the pickguard. I think the owner only played it a couple of times. This is my first actual Jazzmaster and I am amazed at how useless the bridge is. I don't know how anyone plays one with the stock bridge. Every time I would start digging in, a string would skip to a different groove on the saddle and go out of tune. The Tremolo is pretty much worthless too. I ordered a Mastery Bridge & Tremolo and installed them yesterday. What a huge difference that made. The guitar resonates much better and stays in tune regardless how hard I play it. Anyway, here it is.
  9. Bravo! I don't know much about Cort guitars but the one you're playing looks pretty nice.
  10. Albert King certainly made his mark with a Korina V on his early recordings. I don't know that you can say that his awesome tone had anything to do with Korina though.
  11. I had no idea that this even existed. I thought the only Futuras were the Rick Nielsen ones. Very cool!!
  12. The new Strymon Iridium looks pretty interesting. https://www.strymon.net/products/iridium/
