    i really wasnt looking for a guitar at all, just a case, but i sort of fell in love with this at first sight and it was for sale on Faceplant just round the corner from my house. So here it is.
    Mint condition 2008 Epiphone Broadway. Didnt see it coming but im glad its here! The flatwounds on this sound and feel great. 7BC04472-2E12-407D-8FD9-C3817E4FB5EF.jpeg 03B6B4A2-E15A-4977-BD94-A20922D0D5E2.jpeg E3A622CD-1540-4C18-BB02-C0E31D4AF05A.jpeg 134A06F2-B1FA-4A87-BAB4-6F02A32CC607.jpeg 9FE4FFD2-19C0-4AFB-BA3A-91493516D557.jpeg 16EE28B9-23D1-4D79-91F1-4D18916B3B7B.jpeg 05F347B3-FB83-44C6-A0DF-235DAB620180.jpeg 3D4B0D68-96CF-4FD7-AB2B-C9BF85936AAE.jpeg

    That is gorgeous! The fretboard inlays remind me of those on my Guild F412. Thing of beauty, congratulations.

    Congrats on the nice case mbkri. Maybe you could move the guitar so we could see it better. ;)

    Love the look of the Broadway. Years ago I bought a blonde hollowbody on the looks alone. Fortunately, it turned out to be a decent guitar.

    I’m with @freddyfingers I don’t think I could get away with that either. Awesome wood grain, enjoy the case...

    Great sounding case. No jackplate on the guitar inside though

    That is the true definition of case candy. Congrats. I've been following one of those locally but have resisted.

    Its such a different beast to anything else that i have, im really enjoying it this evening. Such a mellow sound, so clean and round sounding. I would encourage you to stop resisting and give it a go.
    Because enabling is what we do best on this forum.

    Have to say, the output of these Alnico humbuckers is really low compared to the filtertrons in my falcon. I cant lower the bridge much more so i’ll see how high i can raise the pickups in the morning, but its a lot quieter than id have expected. Ive read that a lot of owners swop out the stock neck pickup for a Seymour Duncan Benedetto

    Congrats! Gibson L5 on the cheap. Too bad I'm not the biggest fan of the vine decal on the headstock(or the headstock shape itself), or my blonde Sheraton and Zephyr Emperor would have had a cousin. :)

    Good that you snagged that CASE!

    And, very kind of you to help the seller by relieving him of its contents, as well. ;)

    Good deal!

    It's like every time a see a Tele neck or body that I like and acquire... it seems to always happen that the rest of the components which make up a complete guitar follow right along.o_O
