I have joined club Panther. This guitar is perfect.
Congrats - brand spankin new
Looks good, congrats!
Gotta love that smell.
Ah, and in black, my favorite color. Congrats !!
I know, I know, Black Panthers are always black. I'm just being a wise guy. Hope I don't get banned.
Seriously, those guitars tempt my trigger finger at times.
This one ticks all my boxes. Double cut for full access. 12" radius. No mudswitch. V-Cut Bigs. Only weighs 7.5 lbs. Gonna be a versatile companion I do believe!
I nearly bought one a while ago, then we went all Brexity and the price went up to more than I wanted to pay.
Now considering moving on a couple of less-used planks to fund a second hand Panther if I can ever find one. A thumbs up from Tony might just push me over the edge.
Locked, loaded, subscribed. Have at it.
Cool guitar, congrats man!
This is a really great all-purpose guitar with some extra bling included.
IMHO this is "the better ES 335". Congrats, Tony.
One thing I'm curious though about Panthers is the top mounted cord jack. Is it reinforced on the inside to prevent cracking if you happen to step on your cord? You know, the same problem the Electromatic hollow bodies have unless you add a jack plate.
Niiiice. Can't wait to hear that kitty roar.
I told you so, but I didn't think, you will choose it, because you found it's looks too discreet.
Anyway ... congrats and welcome to the Panther Club
Don't miss to try Thomastik Jazz Swing on it ... they sound so wonderfully woody on this beast.
Hmm. I can't answer that. However, I've had lots of top mount guitars over the years and never a single problem.
I also always loop my guitar chord through my strap(which acts as a "lock" of sorts)before plugging in. Also - I run a wireless, so there is literally no chance of that happening for me.
Definitely one of the most versatile Prolines and pretty comfortable, right?
You know, the more I looked at it......the more it grew on me. Reminds me of something Elvis would have played in the '68 Comeback Special.
Also - it became a matter of practicality for me. This guitar literally ticked all my preferred specs boxes.
Not often, but from time to time they show up on the used market ... lately I even saw one in the bay for just 1300 bucks. Good luck finding one!
You will love it, I'm pretty sure, not only for it's comfort and versatility, but also for it's discreet look, which in my opinion has some kind of elegance.
I'll hit you up later n let you know my feelings after I've given it the treatment(you know.....my strings and setup and lube, check the nut, see if I need a new bridge etc.....). I'll be gigging with it this weekend too for some real world experience.
Congrats Tony,beautiful geet that!
