    "does not ship to Australia" rules out temptation for me!

    Thanks for the thought, Mat. Our international borders are still closed to non-Australian citizens, but guitars are still welcome! :D

    I shipped him a guitar bought here. It worked out well. Bloody expensive though.

    And I'm still grateful for my Blueburst 6120-JR, Jim!

    Under ten miles from my house but what will it do that my falcon, 6120 and rose won’t?

    It’s my most resonant hollow body. Rings out loud and bright. Weighs much less than my falcon and a bit less than the 6120s. It wont add a whole bunch to your Arsenal but it is noticably lighter and ringer than my other guitars. I use it for the dry signal in most of my recordings with the band. But I wouldn’t drive the ten miles to try it unless you are ready to fall in love!

    The fujigen gretsch are known for their floating fretboard - the extension does not touch the top like on most Gretsch made in Terada. This should result in a more resonant top and louder acoustic volume. Not sure if they all have it.

    Seriously, these dont pop up often and they are great. I had two, one from terada and one from fujigen, both from 05 and i sold the Terada one even though it had a Bigsby. I believe the ply top is 1/16” thinner on the FG guitars also. E15DDA1F-A0E4-428B-AC4E-7FB776FC17E9.jpeg
