They had a Halloween promotion that got me a little more than $100 off what was already a pretty good price on a showroom model, so I jumped. The actual seller was Chicago music exchange, and I’ve heard nothing but great things about them. The guitar is awesome, I am very pleased.

    Nice! Grats on the new special. That looks really nice.

    Chicago Music Exchange is Reverb.com - FYI

    Ah.. never put that together before. And I'm always surprised that so many people don't know that Guitar Center owns Musician's friend (and Music 123, and The Woodwind & The Brasswind). AMS, ZZounds, and Same Day Music.com are all one company too, I believe.

    Almost bought this same one from CME... it was just over $500 with the promo. I picked up a Charvel San Dimas Pro Mod instead. Probably didn't need another LP.

    Nice score! Curious, what’s the weight on that one?

    It's admittedly difficult for me to "accept" a Special with humbuckers, but that thing looks like it would take no prisoners, do it well, and do it handsomely.

    Nice.

    Good question, I’ll check it out when I get home. It’s pretty light.

    Awesome!! I love my special. Bound fretboard, humbuckers, and love the buttons.

    Ive been hunting for a pickguard like yours to put on my '15 Special but cant find one for sale.
