    Anybody have a cheap guitar that is a lifetime never seller?

    About a month ago, I bought an SX Hawk from Rondo Music for about $159...It's a Strat style - my only Strat - 3 single coils, maple neck and fret board, solid alder body and just a clear coat finish. The wood is so vibrant the guitar just sings. Very comfortable, balanced, versatile sounds. Came...

    Pawn shop guitar buy - Squier Affinity Jazzmaster,,,$150 well spent.

    Saw this odd little Squier in the window, had to take a look - the Arctic White Squier/Fender Affinity Jazzmaster H H...Picke it up, and the neck was a beauty. New, they are about $200, and this oe was $150, so no HUGE deal, but a far better playing guitar than I expected. Cleaned it up, change...

    Hohner Arbor Series guitars

    I have an older Hohner acoustic and it is a GEM...I don't know how this relates to your guitar, but they have a good customer service department, and answer questions online. Nice axe...Happy New Year! ADDED: They were made in the '80's and '90's, and there are several online sites about them...

    Anyone have a Danelectro?

    I have had several over the years...Played an original Dano Longhorn bass in the '60's and '70's...Now have a '90's reissue, and 2 6 strings, a black DC59, along with a 3 pickup DC in metallic purple. I love 'em, and I DO use the aftermarket adjustable bridge on both guitars...vast improvement...

    Epi Masterbilt AJ500M question

    Check Epiphone's site, and look up your model...they should have info on the bracing ...the Masterbilt is a very good acoustic, but you might end up wanting to buy more than one...They are loud, and have a distinctive voice, and the mahogany has a different tone than the maple version...Enjoy! I...

    Epiphone ES335 pro and comparison to Gibson 335 review

    One thing to add...My OLDER Epi 335 PRO has had a professional fret leveling and polishing job, and complete set up...I recommend you get this on your 335...the difference is amazing...not that the factory set up or fret job was bad, but a GOOD pro made my Epiphone play better than my Gibson Les...

    Epiphone ES335 pro and comparison to Gibson 335 review

    I have owned an Epiphone ES335 PRO in Ebony for several years. I like it so much I recently bought one in Cherry, just because so many players I like play a Gibson 335 in that color...So 2 keepers. I own several Gibsons - 2 Les Pauls, an older Firebird, 2 Juniors and 2 Melody Makers...The ES 335...

    NGD - Firebird

    I have to caution you on those Firebirds...I got the one in my pretty picture as a Christmas gift to myself last year...and since then, have bought a 2008 in cream white...They are sneaky like Les Pauls and Telecasters, man...get one and you want more... but they play so GOOD!!!

    Limited Edition Tribute P90 Les Paul...got here yesterday...:)

    saw this worn honeyburst beauty at zZounds online, bought it at 4:30 AM Thursday...delivered Saturday!!! There are many very fancy Les Pauls, but this thing just vibrates, even unplugged, and the P90's sing and cry...I recommend these very highly - now BOTH my Les Pauls are "speclal...
