    You got the best one: spruce top. Search for 6196T or CC or Country Club on the site and get lots of information. I do not post often because my English is so-so. But this is a special event.

    What is the serial # ? Yours seem to have the zero fret of same size as the others which is the right thing (re: Selmer gypsy jazz guitars). Also a question, do you have a slight hum when your standby switch is at "off" ?

    That guitar is the best and most versatile guitar one can have. Seems in excellent condition too.

    ENJOY!!!!

    Beautiful! My advice is to skip the TV Jones. I’ve owned big body baby’s with both stock and TV Jones.....those stock pickups rock. But do as you think best. You can’t go wrong with that guitar!

    I don't like Gold hardware, but I must recognise that the G6196T is the one on which Gold fits nicely thanks to that Cadillac Green... :cool::cool::cool:

    Congratulations, indeed ! ;)

    A+!

    Congratulations on the big beauty, you may find the pickups to be very versatile and have a great voice. Give them a try before switching them, I was surprised at how well they sound. Enjoy it, play it, and if you feel that you can't live with the pickups, TV Jones offers many wonderful alternatives.

    Thanks to all for the congrats and suggestions!! Truly appreciated!! I was thinking of T-Armonds because I bought a Dyna CC from Tony65-55 a few years ago and always regretted letting her go!! I am going to give the Filters a whirl before making up my mind as to which mods might be contemplated though! Cheers!!

    Congrats,they are a beautiful thing to behold alright !:cool:

    My local had one in stock a few years ago ,just gorgeous,it didn't sit too long either,didn't even get a chance to give her a rattle !

    The last one i played was back in 2003/04 ,back when they had the metallic finish,which i kinda liked.

    I really want a Dyna one though.
