    Hello, I'm John and that's my new 6120 DE in the avatar photo. This all came about as a result of taking my Orange 5120 to Street Sounds for new pick-ups and a new bridge. A little cost factoring and horse trading later I came away with the best guitar I've ever owned.
    While there are love/hate lines drawn around the various pick-up camps, the Dyna Sonics in this guitar along with the metal bridge and brass nut produce some of the sweetest clean tones imaginable, add some reverb and tremolo, Mr. Eddy at your service.
    That's my story good forum folks, and I'm stuck with it.;)

    John

    Welcome, John, and congratulations on the 6120DE. I'm big on the Dynas, too. How about a better look at your new best guitar?

    Thank you one and all for the words of welcome, and thunder 58 I feel your pain. That bridge is a horror story on a sunny afternoon. Took some photos this afternoon. Here's my new 6120 DE and his little brother: the 5620CB.
