My mom bought me a used white Falcon in 1965 that had been traded in at a guitar store, it was the double cutaway with a bigsby arm that looked like a piece of gold plated threaded pipe fitting and the rod screwed in. Had that guitar over 35 years and sold it when I got nervous about the binding delaminating. Never knew about Dan Erlewine back then, then Sold a Country Club, 5 Les Paul recording models, a Brian Setzer SSO, Fender strat 50th anniversary and. PRS 10 top. Near $20K. my wife wanted to go to school. Turns out she dropped out 1 month later. Besides being nauseous for 3 weeks, I eventually replaced a few with a great Taylor and a few others BUT IT AIN’T THE SAME. Had that Falcon since I was 14 and I was 56 at the time. Choose wisely.
