    I've been GAS-ing for one of these since they first came out but managed to stop myself from acquiring one until my mom & sister were way too generous w/ a Sweetwater gift certificate for my impending birthday. Being a good part of the way to covering it financially I went ahead & pulled the trigger on one earlier this afternoon.

    Unfortunately, the pics of my exact one were already off the site by the time I thought to grab them, but here's the next closest to it from my memory:

    Seems like it should be pretty darn flexible in tones for me. RJ Ronquillo can sell me on a whole lot of stuff though ;):

    The few clips I've heard of it acoustically have seemed really impressive to me as well.

    I might have had a tough decision if they had the Special in the pretty great looking blond finish GC/MF has, but the satin metallic finish of this one is at the very least equally as pleasing for my tastes aesthetically & I'd imagine more comfy on the functional front for me.

    It was cool that they have it estimated as arriving on my birthday :) Pretty excited for this one so needed to share, thanks for taking a look!

    That's awesome! Congrats. I've got a Guild Jumbo acoustic that's been with me a long time. Very partial.

    One of the cooler hollow bodies out there that I would like and a non Gretsch. I really dig the white pickups as well.

    Enjoy, and let’s see some rockin’ pics after it arrives. And of course… Happy early Birthday!

  13. They can make a good product. The past year or so i acquired two guilds. Although both had issues with the first one sent, guild replaced one and the other was replaced at the store through shipping. They play well, have unique sounds and the finish is decent. Both are lookers just like yours. I have had a starfire 2 with dynas on my short list for a while as well. My photos are poor, but thats what they look like.

    Congrats!

    Happy Birthday, Sid! That's a unique finish on that guitar, really eye-catching.
