    Why do we like the sound of vinyl?

    I think my father simply likes turntables as mechanical equipment. Two of his:

    I Don't Bond With SG Style Guitars-So Shoot Me

    Oh, I did not know that. So that was real Gibson? Probably (too) expensive anyway. Interesting to look the positions of 3 pickups. Looks like Frank Marino has put especially the neck pick up much closer to neck than Gibson did. They chased different sounds?

    I Don't Bond With SG Style Guitars-So Shoot Me

    Never owned SG-type guitar. If I would own one I would probably do ''Frank Marino modifications'' ... I assume there is not one like this on sale as new?

    Danelectro 12 string Korea

    I will catch one of those before Christmas time (my own Christmas gift). So yes; this will be my next guitar. There are actually 3 models of 12 strings electric Danelectros available right now. 1.) The cheapest one is Danelectro 59 vintage 12 (different colors) Price: 549euros in Europe...

    My metal guitar

    I was playing metal for long time (as one person asked). This is pretty thin guitar ... I just do not like tone of it much (same with all of these ''modern Humbucker guitars''). If I would put strats S-S-S pickups into this, who knows I could use it more often.

    If I could use 3000euros for guitar...

    Ok, if it is neck heavy it would not be for me. That can really be true as this has really think semi-hallow body (it can not weight much). But yes... it looks gorgeous. I also like that they have mixed silver/chrome and gold parts. I thought that could not work in guitar, but it really does.

    If I could use 3000euros for guitar...

    Yes. US dollar is strong against Euro right now. US dollar seems to be strong against UK's pounds (£) as well. I have not followed how the same is with Japan's jeni. I do not go to reasons as politics are not allowed here. The reasons are still pretty obvious if following news.

    I have not own any Harley Benton guitars but I know the brand is in sale here in Europe (Thomann Germany). Probably one of their own brands/labels? And those guitars are very inexpensive. For example original strat copies goes from 79euros https://www.thomann.de/fi/harley_benton_ms15bk.htm to...

    If I could use 3000euros for guitar...

    Not my opinion as such ... was pure guess more like. Does not matter at all, as I will not gonna use 3000euros for any guitar. In real I tend to purchase guitars between 500euros and 1000euros. That price range will offer quality - price ratio which I'm able to accept. If my salary/livelihood...

    I would buy Duesenberg Joe Walsh model... Gretsch + Rickenbacker + Hofner = Duesenberg?

    Gretsch g5422g-12

    What comes to 12 strings Danelectros alone, I more keen to test 59X12 than 59 Vintage 12. Just as the first one seems to offer wider range of tones.

    Looks like they have this guitar in two colors in Europe: 1000euros is still already lots of money. 1/3 cheaper there would be Guild Starfire I-12 CR And about half price (just 549euros) Danalectro 59 Vintage 12 String (different colors) Or at 599euros Danalectro 59x12 I'm planning...

    Thanks. Yes, there is always ''a risk'' as stepping in to music shop. I think I will call few bigger music shops in Copenhagen (Denmark) to check if they have those on sale ... and go there to test one. This is a guitar which I will not gonna buy from any huge Germany/UK net shops.

    Gretsch g5422g-12

    Hello, I noticed that Gretsch has published this kind of guitar. Does anyone here have one these or at least tested/played one in music shop? Personal feeling/opinions?
