Somehow I think this and the “Curly” passing is too much coincidence...
What does it mean!?
Hmmm...did not think about that. Conspiracy theory?
As a design exercise it's fine - something different just to be different. But as something I want to own? ... I think I'll pass.
Well although it isn’t the bling bright Penguin we are all used to I actually love it!
Whew, I'm glad none of you guys pulled the trigger. According to my sales guy at Sweetwater there were two made. I heard the other one went to a collector. I have had mine for a week now and all do is sleep, eat, and play my Gretsch CS G6134T 59 Penguin NOS, Nat FM/RW. I dreamed last night I painted it white and sure enough I woke up 3:30 am and couldn't get back to sleep. You guessed it, I turned it way down and played till breakfast. She gets pushed through a JHS Colour Box with a touch compression, delay, and or reverb (all JHS as well) on into a Fender Brownface Princeton Reissue (Chris Stapleton). The instrument continues to grow on me with a ton of sustain and very warm midrange. The bottom end is super clean and the top end can snarl with just enough bite for my taste. Albeit not flashy or gaudy the inlay in the headstock and natural wood binding look mighty fine. Hey, that's my Penguin.
You need a brain of some sort, Dyno, Atmoic, Mystery or Jr Barnyard or ElPescadoro.
She's a "Tawny" Penguin.
