    No have not..I’m not into the DeArmond vibe thought this would be a cool change up to BSHR. Been trying to sell the orange guitar @ 2k but no hits..figured if it’s a pro line it must play well enough..?

    Is it a trade to keep or a trade to sell the silver falcon?

    I get the Falcon, give up the 6120
    Worse to worse it’ll probably be easier to sell the Falcon than the odd ball Nashville...I’m thinkin ..

    sorry I meant would you trade the 6120 for the falcon with the intention of selling it as your 6120 isn't moving? or would you do the trade to keep the falcon? I just know you were looking to recoup the funds from your latest BSHR purchase.

    I haven't come across a silver falcon personally but it looks awesome, I'd much prefer silver bindings then gold, I'd do the swap personally if I didn't bond with the dyna's and I was able to play the silver falcon.

    Sorry, gotch ya..seems interesting guitar. Has Setzer Sig in bridge and Magnatron in neck. Maybe she’ll be a keeper?? Read it’s got resonant vibe of a Gib335 .. but the thinner body @ 1 3/4 doesn’t impress me.. yet

    I've been looking at them on line now as you have really sparked my interest in one lol, not sure whether the bigsby was stock on these either but anyway, good luck with which ever way you go.

    Tough call.

    Both nice gits in their own way, with their specific features.

    Boils down to which one inspires you more to play.

    Best of luck.

    FWIW, that silver sparkle on black is a stunning combination.

    Is there any chance to play both, at the same time, same settings of any other devices, ...?

    If not ... well ... they're both really nice ones. If you're more into centerblock and/or Filtertron than hollow/DeArmond, and know that for sure ... well, then you wouldn't ask, would you?

    They're worth roughly the same I guess ... hm ... a close race I think, but ... you had the 6120 quite some time now, and if it just isn't what you're after, the Falcon is another chance to be spot on (or close enough to grow into spot on), and if it is easier to sell in case this doesn't work out...

    I think this deal may work out great, but of course, I can't give you a warranty.

    The silver Falcon would suit me very well. Not so much a fan of DeArmonds, here.

    Shipping 200sh. Packing 50-75sh+ Insurance 100sh... I was trying to recoup the BSHR purchase not bleed on a trade.
    Deal came too late. Might have prevented me from the BSHR purchase.
    Time to settle down and appreciate what I got...
    thanks all!!
    I was getting a little kookoo. I’m better now.
    Wasn’t too hip on the thin body any hoo.

    I would keep the G unless I didn’t bond with it then I would go for the silver beast. It seems you said you don’t really get on with the dynas so going with the silver seems like the thing to try. Try it first if at all possible.
