What a blessing that the Eastman Romeo was a bust. I sent it back, already received my full refund and its replacement landed early this morning. The 16 yr old G6119-1962 Tennessee Rose. She is beautiful and in as good as condition as advertised. She arrived packed like an amateur. Packed like I pack guitars, way overly protected....Gotta love that. Even the floating bridge was removed prior to packing. 16 yrs old and she arrived with all her paper work, truss Rod wrench and even the case key! She needed work, nothing major. A result of benign neglect, living in its case for much of its life. Every screw was loose, tuners were very sticky, a shot of Tri-Flo and a number of revolutions with out the strings on and they were operating perfectly. The beautiful fingerboard was dryer than I like. A cleaning with Naphtha and a treatment of F-One fixed that. It came with 9’s on it. I play 11’s now but I have a couple extra sets of my favorite strings in 10’s, DR Pure Blues so I put them on. I set her up, intonated, set relief, action and everything worked perfectly, no buzzing and no scratching from any pots or switches. The stain really lets the wood show through, stunning! Tone: I really think the Electrotone, fake F hole body, really works well with the mud switch. The switch creates a much more pleasant and less muddy tone than it did on my 6120. Un-amplified it is very pleasant. Look, a Gretsch with the truss Rod cover screws not under any strings.. I played the Beatles version of “Honey Don’t” on it and it sounded like I was playing Shea Stadium in 1965. Yup, George playing the same model....RIP George.
