    That add looks great and sells it better than on the official link. Good pictures are more important in moving product in today’s online world.

    If that looks as good in person, I could be persuaded to change from Snow Crest White to Cadillac Green!

    I have a Fairlane Blue 5420...but this Cadillac Green is also a very cool color....I might have gone green if they offered it when I bought mine.

    With all that gold it looks way to fancy for me. I’ll stick with my blue one.

    It’s not the first time the official site is lacking in accuracy either in listed specs or representative pics.

    Very very nice. Would be even nicer with nickel hardware, but that‘s just me. 1149€...getting also pricewise closer to Prolines:

    + 300€ TV‘s
    + 300€ Bigsby B6
    + 120€ Truarc
    + 100€ Case...roundabout 2k.

It’s a beautiful guitar but I’m not into that much gold. I sold my Fairlane Blue 5420 four days after I got it.

    What an absolute beauty. The first guitar I actually fell in love with was a Gibson Les Paul with a similar green and all gold hardware from probably the late 80's. It was a Classic Studio if my memory serves me right but at over $3k and with a baby on the way it was left to dream of and lust over.

    This has the same distinct coloring scheme and looks kind of classic to me even with the sparkle. Sad they can't find a better way of making the gold plating much more durable though.
