    Such a sweet deal, $449 shipped, cheaper than a used one. I was kinda kicking myself once I found out the vintage orange was also on sale, I would of got that first, but this is a very nice color. The rosewood is dark enough too :)

    This is the second guitar I bought from Adorama and so far another great guitar out the factory sealed box. A few tweaks on the truss rod was all it needed. Even the intonation was dead on. D’addario strings stock. Loving the super Hilotrons, they have that Hilo high end, some of that Hilo clank is missing though, probably unavoidable because of the dual coils. Borrowing the Starcasters dBridge, this baby needs an ABM 2400. Anybody got a spare to sell?

    Well done, great price on a great guitar. As I stated a few days ago, you folks are paying less for those Korean 5622’s than I got on a trade in for mine.....I think I was lucky.

    ABM2400 for the guitar is a good idea. I think tension bar Bigsbys really benefit from a quality roller bridge.

    I had one on my 5622, but I took it off when I traded it in and put it on my new Jet. I even had the proper size threaded bridge posts in my spare parts bin.
