Those are seriously sweet guitars.
Congrats!!!

Well, I don't have a new guitar; but the living room curtains are bought, ironed, and up--so, for a Christmas gift to me, I ordered the 30" matching rug that will be a perfect fit for my overwhelmingly huge 39" x 35" "foyer."
My living room is kinda like that Cadillac Johnny Cash used to sing about--"one piece at a time" (the difference being mine is legitimately acquired.) :D

TJ,

Those burst are just gorgeous. Since you pointed out the waist blend to me, I'm captivated.

I may have to get a non-O after a long sweet 'O' run! ;)

I put in a couple of bids on the '98 parlor that was recently on ebay. Other than that, no new gits for the remainder of the year.

Tho I am working on something for early next year...

Sorry for the mistake, Flysig. I thought it looked different from the Echotones I was looking at.

If I ever take better pix, I'll use them. But I like yours. I did give you props on the ning site, sorta.
I can bring the Mosrite, but I thought you might prefer the Elite 6768. :D

OK gang, I'M the one who got an Echotone. Yes, it's Korean, but it's a beauty. I wound up selling the Ibanez AF85 that I had gotten a few months ago. Then a guy from Rapid City came in with another one to sell on consignment. Well the same guy who bought my Ibanez also bought this one. (He said he'd been looking for a guitar like that all his life and wanted a second one for a back-up.) So when the guy from Rapid came down to pick up his money, he also brought the Echotone. I bought it on the spot. It has a nice thin neck, beautiful tone, it's well balanced, and THIS one I'm going to keep. As most of you know, I can't post pictures, but it's a sunburst, and hasn't a mark on it. A good friend has a Conn C series from the sixties that he swears is the best guitar ever made. Supposedly it is an EXACT copy of a Gibson 335, right down to the pick-ups. Well, we did a side by side comparison, and the Hamer sounds better, at least to my ears. Merry Christmas to me. (And to all of you too!)

Wow, you guys are getting some nice gits. I wish I could but don't have the scratch or the space for another.

I think what I will get is another stomp box, like a compressor or an exciter and maybe one of those compilations from Dylan's radio show.

I splurged and picked up another nifty custom-fitted cover for the other Genz amp.

Adamas W598




Adamas II 1681




The W598 was about what expected balanced full warm 12 string.
Adamas II 1681 just blew me away.
Big HUGE sound. Possibly the best sounding acoustic I ever played.
