    ABC500AB-5499-46D3-8ED0-E824564B2625.jpeg Here it is. Just opened up this G5622T.

    First impression: I am really surprised by the quality vs country of origin.

    so far I love this thing! It’s a little different than my G2627T Streamliner, which is exactly what I wanted.

    ok, back to playing. :)

    I had a 5622, great guitar. I only sold it because mine had a very skinny neck and my old hands prefer chunkier necks now.

    Nice guitar, and sweet Vox amp behind it! They will go well together for sure.

    Congratulations! Beautiful .

    Is that the Holeyboard pedal board? I’m looking to buy one but would love to get your opinion on it first, if that is in fact what I’m seeing. Cheers.

    Good eye! It is the Holeyboard. I like it a lot. It's put together very well and makes mapping out your board pretty easy.
    The only downside is that if you want to change something, you have to cut the zip ties and rearrange - BUT - they include a alot of zip ties to use - an entire bag full.
    I don't change my pedals around too much so it's not really that big of a deal for me.

    Functionality wise it works great. I like having the top row for easy access. I also like that it is expandable to suit your needs.

    FYI - I got mine off Reverb directly from Holeyboard.
    If you make a reasonable offer (~10-15% off) - they'll most likely accept it, they did for me anyway.

    Awesome. Thanks so much for the feedback and tips. Can’t wait to get mine. I’m actually gonna get the Thirdman records version, because I’m a Jack White groupie hahaha. But I will be buying one expandable part directly from Holeyboard. I’ll definitely take you advice and try ordering from their Reverb shop. Thanks again. Congratulations on the beautiful guitar.
