    Sadly why I'll never own a stock Strat. 45 years of playing and that darn volume is right in my way. Easier to pick up another guitar that alter my strum attack

    In fact, it's pretty amazing. extremely LOUD and well balanced for an archtop. It's actually as loud as my flat-top Rancher.

    More info (and pics) about this incredible guitar HERE.

    Tony, I noticed the Ink Spots album in the background on your video, and since I is prominent in this picture, I just had to comment. My father was a big Ink Spots fan (also into 40's Big Band, Herb Alpert, and classical music), so it was cool to see that album in your picture. I have a very eclectic range of music that I like, in large part because of what I heard growing up. For me, it was the Drifters that first caught my ear, at a very young age.

    An old syncromatic i found last month IMG_0198.JPG in a pawn shop down here. I was shocked, in a good way to found out she is full hollow body! The gretschbuckers are not gretschy at all, although the neck pick up delivery some good tones...
