    I just want you all to know that this forum is a really bad influence on me and especially my wallet. So I went out looking for a hollowbody to compliment my 5622 and I'm thinking maybe a nice 5420 would be the ticket. Umm, thanks to some prodding from my wonderful wife, this beauty followed me home instead:


    It's a 2007 G6119 Tennessee Rose with the factory case. There was actually 2 to choose from, the other was a 2013 I believe and was a bit cleaner overall as the '07 has a few small love marks and the upper frets and body badly need a good cleaning and polish, but for me this one had all the mojo over the '13.

    These are great........for some reason I’ve never bought one, though every time I see one I think “man.....that’s perfect”. I love the color and love the lack of mudswitch.

    Thanks everyone, she's definitely a keeper... and the guitar is as well!
    First impressions: I usually live on the neck pickup in most of my guitars, but I really am liking the middle position on the TR. The neck pickup is actually a bit brighter or "open" than I'm used to and that's not a bad thing, just different. She'll growl nicely with just a bit of push and the Bigsby is super smooth. As you can tell, I pretty thrilled with this one.
    If I get some time today or tomorrow, I really need to give the TR a good cleaning as the upper frets have turned a lovely shade of nasty and install the new flat wounds I picked up yesterday. Cheers!
