    Thanks Tony! That track sounds amazing!! You and Larry are making me even more impatient to get my hands on this baby! Unfortunately I think it will be a week of waiting for UPS Ground to deliver from East Coast all the way to California! I did just find out that the guitar I bought is a 2013 model which makes this buy even more crazy good!

    Jason, after you've had it for six months you'll be wondering what kind of silly person would ever sell one. Seriously, do the little mods. Raise the pickups, stainless Compton and you'll be in guitar heaven. There is a holistic goodness about these instruments, almost an achievement of perfection. You'll love it, although when you get it, it might need a bit of setting up but I know you can do that well.

    The only deficiency I have ever experienced in my 2008 Anni is that the side fret markers are small and dim and on a dark stage, they vanish. I took 1/8" white automotive pinstriping and cut little pieces about 1/2" long and stuck 'em to the top edge of the fretboard. Looks like sh*t but it works. I can feel them too but hey... one day I'll take her into Jesse and get him to put some real fret markers there that my old eyes can see.

    Is there any better sound or sight than the rumble of a UPS or FEDEX truck pulling in front of your house with that new guitar?

    Awesome guitar, love mine. Smokin' hot price too!

    I really like the stock filters. I have TV Classics in another Gretsch and I wouldn't say they're better or worse, but they are different. The stock filters certainly hold their own.
