    Got the inclination to finally go ahead and get a CG Duo Jet.

    After a couple years of having a 6118-TV and a Penguin (both gone a few years now), I felt it was finally time to get the one I have been thinking I wanted for a while, and just haven't been able to find locally.

    Went into a local dealer to inquire about ordering me one, and he just happened to have a regular used CG hanging on the wall for repairs. Seeing that beautiful look, and with a bit of haggling, I was convinced it was worth it to get him to get me one of the -57s.

    I'll keep you posted, should be here in a week!

    I am allergic to Cadillac Green. So far I have smashed up a caddy green car, and a caddy green BSA. A guitar might be ok, but I'd probably do my back in getting it out of the case!

    I loved my caddy green Duo Jet.
    After it was stolen I got to see it one more time when it was put up on Ebay.

    Enjoy!

    Well it finally came! Had just a few minutes to mess with it at lunch time, but it is awesome!
    Really is a great looking guitar. The back matches almost perfect - can barely see the seam.
    Everything else is just stellar. The sounds is very nice - clean, warm and jangly (Peavey Classic 20 head).
    Come on 5 o'clock!
