    That's the one that appeals to me too. I don't have the nuts to rob a bank, though! :(

    Meh...Black Bezels and those big goofy F-holes don't do anything for me.

    Drooling over this picture, I just noticed that the label inside indicates that this is a G6659 model, and not a G6120 TG-Jr as they indicated on the page inserted in the strings in another picture. An interesting discrepancy.

    That’s regular 6120/Falcon size F-holes. They look bigger with the photo lighting because they have dark binding inside.

    Luckily for you they make a G5410... if you’re still tempted. ;)

    Yeah, I love the idea of a natural wood finish and dark binding, but the net effect is rather cartoonish.

    So many beautiful guitars. Love that black reversed BillyBo featured in another thread here.

    A few years back Music Zoo ran a very limited run of them. I had one but I found it more uncomfortable to play than the regular shape so I sold it. Here's a pic of my 2 Billy-Bos together:

    Nothing for me there... but if others dig these designs, God bless. Regardless of the aesthetics, I'm sure they all play really great. Stern's team makes fantastic guitars!

    I will own a Rat Rod eventually....but I am thinking wait till next year, when there are used ones with cases for a lot less...The fact that I sell and trade often, I usually don't buy new....:(

    ...and the fact that they are cool and different, there will probably be quite a few people buying them....which means...also selling them, eventually.
    I still may eat my words and just buy one now...they are so darn cool:D:cool:;)
