    So after playing the hell out of the guitar Over the weekend noticed a couple flaws that didn't make sense on a new guitar. Took it back and turns out it wasn't actually new....my wife was mortified. So there wasn't another to replace it and I had already become quite attached to it. So I upped the game and traded a few things to make up the difference and upgraded to get a new 2018 vintage sunset burst 335 figured. With a nice discount from the store. It arrived today. Everyone's happy especially me lol. Plays like butter and sounds amazing. The burst is amazing pics don't do it justice. 20200226_144215_HDR.jpg 20200226_144230_HDR.jpg 20200226_144240.jpg 20200226_144320_HDR.jpg 20200226_144324_HDR.jpg

  2. Congrats! Not sure how you were able to return a gift the wife got you. I have everything she ever got me, somewhere, in a box. It’s illegal to throw away or return under any circumstances. As it was purchased with love. On the bright side, she doesnt surprise me with guitars as i am rather picky and she knows I wouldn’t return it even if I couldn’t play it well.

    She wanted it to be new and when we figured out it wasn't she said take it back. She was angry about it and wanted me to be happy. I could have lived with it.

    40 years ago, I'll say it again - 40 years ago... Did I mention it was FORTY FREAKING YEARS AGO... I made the mistake of tossing a rife the wife had bought me as a birthday gift in on a trade for a new Corvette. I'm still hearing about that blunder even to this day! o_O

    Looks like a Memphis Traditional model. These are great playing and looking models. I have one in cherry. Congrats with both the guitar and your lady.
