    Maybe I would go - personally - for the Gretsch because of the controls arrangement (master volume)

    But it's me, OK ?

    A+!

    Nice guitar...What you gonna get next?? You know your getting hooked...
    About the stands. Don't know what brand you got but my buddy bought 4 off Amazon didn't say what brand but the were cheap so he got them. He was right, they were cheap, cheap foam..One guitar the foam on the stand stuck to the bottom of the guitar and left marks on the neck headstock where it rested on the stand. On one of his acoustic guitars it left dark marks on the bottom. He got looking at other stands he's bought off Amazon and one that is a name brand the foam is starting to deteriorate but others even older of the same brand that he bought from GC are fine. It got me looking at my stands LOL I only use them to hold the guitar when I'm playing another I keep mine in cases. Just my preference.Less dust and dog hair on them..

    Thanks Scamp,
    Yeah, I'm already deep in to my addiction.
    You got me thinking about those cheap stands. They might end up in my 'garage sale' pile.
    The 'dust' here is really micro pulverized sand and there are ways to deal with it but even so, I might have to re-think leaving my harem out of the cases. Seems a shame. Even when I'm not playing they're just aesthetically pleasing.

    I do not know much about it. It was on Reverb. I saw it and loved it. But the price was too high.

    I know how you feel—I like to have my guitars out where I can gaze lovingly at them too. If you're worried about dust, you can build a simple guitar display cabinet out of an IKEA bookcase with glass doors. I made one to humidify my acoustics Happy to post instructions if you're interested.
