    Kirn and Whitfill players - convince me on which one to buy!

    I've never played a Whitfill. I had a killer 67 Tele that I regretted selling for years but I think my Kirn is as good as any Tele I've ever played.

    Who would take a Collings I35LC over a '65 or later 335?

    So 3 1/2 years since I started this thread. I found a used McKay that I like so I bought it. Best 335 I've ever played, though I haven't played very many. It's a copy of a '59 with a pretty chunky neck. I don't know what kind of pickups it has but they sound good.

    NGD Collings Soco 16LC

    Sweet One! I think this is the closest you can come to an old 335 with a Collings. It's the one I'd get. With Throbaks, which are plenty close enough to PAF's to make me happy!

    Who makes a great semi-affordable (sub $3000) hollowbody?

    If I was looking for a semi-hollow and had $3K, I'd consider a Guild Starfire from the '60's or '70's.

    I want a les paul that isn't a gibson.

    I've never owned a Les Paul. I needed a humbucker guitar and wanted something vintage-ish. I wound up scratching my itch with a '73 Guild Bluesbird and it does all I need. Sounds great, plays like butter, and is super versatile. Really great value too....

    I'm glad that boutique owners here don't spend time bashing non-boutique guitars

    My Kirn was $1650 shipped. Is it boutique? Can a Tele be boutique? IDK. I also have a '73 it vintage? I'm so confused.....

    Yaron Bolt-T... Holy Crap!

    I've been a fan of Gil's guitars (from a distance, way out of my league price wise), and I'm a Tele guy as well. My first reaction to this design was "how unfortunate!". But, just like the Bone, the more I look at it the more it kind of grows on me.

    Is that Cebu? I think I've been to that club.

    I'm more comfortable with acoustic players than ukulele players...!

    Ukelele's are the gateway drug to poetry tattoos and white people dreadlocks....
