    Best Hollow and Semi-Hollow Bodies $500-$1000

    I also have an Eastman T486B, but it goes over your budget. Great guitar at any price.

    $40 pick

    Had a copper and stone pic many moons ago. Both put a whoopin' on the strings where you pick...imagine that, the pick wearing out the string and not the other way around

    PSA: $499 Gretsch G5622T Electromatic w/Bigsby w/Free Ship

    I paid $550 a while back as well, and am still very happy. No brainer for 5 clams (wonders if he should get an orange one)

    Best Hollow and Semi-Hollow Bodies $500-$1000

    The supply of great guitars that fit your criteria is huge. Mine all happen to be built in South Korea, and all happened to cost the same! I have a Newark series Guild Starfire II hollowbody that I love. Sweetwater "blem" deal for about $550 Gretsch Electromatic series. Mine are the G5420T...

    Strings going dead right away...too much humidity?

    Although I don't have a direct answer for you, the humidity levels seems fine. Perhaps a bit dry if anything. Try a small humidifier in the room you keep your guitars in. And yes, temperature and humidity are directly related, hence the term, "relative humidity".

    If you could get one back,...

    '96 ASAT. big neck, 9.5" radius. One of the best guitars I've ever touched. Sold it to buy a Guild F-50 which turned out to be a dog. :nuts Someone here from Hawaii bought it. Hope he's still enjoying it :beer

    A GOOD Rant About Customer Service For A Change AND Replacement NGD!

    This is the best "bad NGD" thread I've ever read! I'm glad Spotlight Music and Ibanez took such good care of you. Congrats on your new guitar

    The best deal you've ever given someone

    NDGGD (new double Gretsch Guitar Day)... with photobomb (beware)

    Mickey_C, how much work was involved installing the locking tuners? Did the peg head holes need to be opened up? Looks like a new hole had to be drilled for the screw as well?

    Which 335-type Guitar?

    The cool thing about the Eastmans is they are all built by hand, by skilled craftsmen. I read they got their 1st CNC machine which is used to do inlays

    NDGGD (new double Gretsch Guitar Day)... with photobomb (beware)

    SWEET! I have a new 5420T in orange, and a 5622T in Georgia green. I am quite fond of the stock pups & hardware in both! I feel these guitars just need to be played. Good stuff right out of the box

    Which 335-type Guitar?

    I agree. I have the T486B with P90's and a Bigsby. The "Standard" T486 with humbuckers (Duncan 59 & Jazz) and a stop tailpiece is an outstanding guitar and far above its price point in quality. I got mine at South Shore Music in Mass. They have 3 in stock...
