    The HR was an outstanding guitar.

    I wish Gibson would reissue the Midtown Kalamazoo.

    I burn for one.............:naughty:

    :cheers:

    I picked up this Ibby AS-93 a couple of years ago ... it's a joy to play, and covers a broad range of sounds. I got it $350 used mint, and it gets daily play:

    This thing is like brand new but built in 2013. Still has plastic on the pg and pup covers. I was concerned the neck would be some wimpy thin thing but I'm pleasantly surprised at how substantial it is. Perfect for me. I'm very happy with this guitar and glad I bought it.

    It is such an easy instruments to play. Everytime i pick it up I'm surprised.
    Also very happy with the classic '57's in it. (And happy someone else went to the bother of fitting them) it does have a bad earth hum when either pickup volume is turned down.. but that's another story. .

    Throw in a vote for the Eastman T486. I picked up a T386 used from Guitar Center. The only thing I'd change would be the pickups, which the 486 has. But I paid $627 and $11 for a neck adjustment from a trusted local tech.

    Sounds good unplugged. Slim neck. No fret buzz. Great cherry color.

    The cheapest T386 I could find on Reverb was $825 plus shipping.
