It arrived! Let me start by giving a HUGE thanks to forum member Edward Kim for taking excellent care or me... thanks Edward! I've lusted after this model for a long while and it's fantastic to own one now. It actually landed yesterday, but due to the cold outside, I was forced to let it acclimate overnight. Today I played it and it's a work of art and plays unbelievably great, like a.. well, like a Duesenberg. Don't believe me? PICS! It's extremely sexy and oh so comfy to play. I think that Duesenbergs are like cousins to Gretsches and they never fail to disappoint. This is my second and is a much welcomed addition to collection.
