Of course, I never get a chance to play a guitar before I buy it. LOL! I'm trying to decide on a pre-Baldwin Viking with the funky gagetry (mute and tuning fork bridge) or a Baldwin period Super Chet with the ornate beauty and the irreplacable electronic controls on the pickguard. Hmmm, decisions, decisions. I'm kinda leaning towards the Viking with the crazy bridge setup. The Super Chet has those controls on the pickguard that are very difficult or unable to be replaced.
