    Yes, in a heartbeat. But not that odd one from a few years ago that didn't have all the holes and stuff.

    I hate that Malcolm Young Abomination. If I had one I’d refit all the missing pickups and pots.

    Not if you held a [forum rules prevent me from naming this device which sends small copper-coated lead projectiles downrange at high speeds] to my head.

    No.

    I like CCs even better than Falcons. Why trade a perfect guitar for one that's been hacked up and looks like a pawn shop reject?

    I forgot David loves his double cut Jets.

    That's like trading a White Penguin for a Kramer Van Halen strat.

    No way, no how.

    Why tempt fate?

    "Projectile launching devices" are one of my favorite other hobbies, but I don't talk about them here. I stick to guitars and music as much as possible on guitar forums.

    I don't think the rules are designed to specifically prohibit discussion of firearms from a hobbyist standpoint, but rather because of the annoying fact that such discussions inevitably end up as polarizing political feuds; which we can certainly do without.

    So it's not so much that the topic itself is taboo, but that such topics tend to devolve quickly into trash threads.

    Moderators please correct me if I am wrong here.

    Anyway, back to topic at hand, I still say NO to any such proposed trade. Country Clubs rule!

    What Malcolm model is it? The new reliced one or the model hat they used to offer about 10 years ago? (The latter are highly searched after. )
    A CC vs. a Jet...
    Since these guitars are incompareable in size, sound and handling I would go with the one that makes your heart beat faster.

    Nah,i couldn't /wouldn't do that,i have coveted a Caddy green Club for over 30 years,and yet ,it still eludes me...

    I wouldn't mind one of those new Mal's though,but i think i'd rather have the current red 62 Jet.

    Are you a huge fan of Malcolm Young? If the answer is yes, you may want to give it a chance.
    Otherwise, it’s a no.
    (Btw... with a bit of work and some pickup it would become a very nice Jack White’s Triple Jet. Now that will suit me just fine... ;)).

    Yes, in a heartbeat. No doubt about it. I'm even willing to pay extra. I hate green, don't like CC's and love Jets. Malcolm is pretty cool too.

    I am a huge Malcolm fan, was offered the deal and as unreal as it seems CC seem to lose more value than other Gretsches, have no idea why that is as most people think they are just subdued Falcons, yet don't retain their value like the Falcons do??
