We got great big

Aug 6th, 2014 06:42 PM   Edit   Profile  

Wine red, with two lipsticks and a humbucker. Mahogany body and bolt-on mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, 12" radius (flat!). Narrowish, thin-ish neck, very unlike my Teles ... more like my old '70 335 ...

24.75 scale, five-way pickup selector, so mostly "Strat-ish" sounds, but much darker ...

I like it, but it will take some getting used to. Great crunchiness, 'though I'll use it for funk. Just wanted something different from a Strat.

Build quality, fit and finish, etc. is SUPERB, and came with a padded, headstock-rest-with-Velcro gig bag

The headstock's a little loopy, but I like the rest of the design ... very "classic/retro" in a good way.

Godin has the best in house gig bags in the world, bar none! I almost kept a Godin I tried a few years ago just so I could keep the awesome gig bag! (The guitar had similar specs to yours, w/o the lipstick pups.)

Nice, Peegoo. Yours?

Plus 1, Mikey, on the gig bag; the thing is bombproof.

Peegoo, I think I'll be adding a Bigsby to mine; should take it pretty well. Neck is still a bit on the thin side for me, but I am getting used to it.
