    Martin D-16E: Your Thoughts, Please!

    I recently sold my 2017 Martin Custom Road Series DCRSGT and I'm now looking to upgrade. My search had narrowed to the Yamaha A5R and the Takamine P2DC, either of which can be had for $1399/shipped; however, I just stumbled upon the Martin D-16E and I have to say that I'm intrigued - plus, I...

    Fender Mexi standards (Player series)!

    Yes, of course. ;)

    Fender Mexi standards (Player series)!

    You are correct! My bad. Apologies. Still, seems crazy to be paying $699 for an import.

    Fender Mexi standards (Player series)!

    Fender Player Series Tele's have been $699 MAP since they were introduced in Summer/2018! :rolleyes:

    Sold 2019 Fender Player Series Telecaster $475

    So, hopefully, you got home okay. May I also presume that you're Tele isn't what you said it is, or that you not interested in selling? Thanks for getting back.

    Sold 2019 Fender Player Series Telecaster $475

    I have not seen a Fender Player Series Tele in this color; where was it purchased? Will the original 'case candy' be included (e.g. , hang tags, wrenches, stickers)? I have read that this particular 'special run' model had early production issues, in particular, misaligned nut slots (especially...

    Solid State Home Studio/Small Gig Amps

    Solid state amps have come a long way in the past few years, giving us "retired" folks the opportunity to continue to get great tone, at less weight, for less money, and low/no maintenance. I know there are several, if not many, smaller, boutique and "niche" amp makers out there, building some...

    NEW State of Solid State: Roland JC-22/40, BC Hot & BOSS Katana 50

    Never needed that much volume - and if I ever did, I have my trusty Peavey Bandit 112 combo!

    NEW State of Solid State: Roland JC-22/40, BC Hot & BOSS Katana 50

    I tried a Katana 50 at Guitar Center a while back. Well, it sounded great - way better than the Orange Crush 35RT that I had tried a week earlier. Very pleased with all facets of the Katana 50 - sound, versatility, weight and price (got it on sale)!

    Yamaha: AC3M/AC3R with System 63 SRT vs. NEW AC3M/AC3R with SRT2?

    hunter, I currently own a Martin DC16GTE, and I must admit that I do like the added capabilities of it's "barn door", so point taken on that one. Most of the demos that I've heard of the older Yamaha "barn door" versions (mahogany AND rosewood) sound great to MY ears. I'll try to find demos...

    Yamaha: AC3M/AC3R with System 63 SRT vs. NEW AC3M/AC3R with SRT2?

    I drove 30+ minutes to our closest guitar shop to play these, but they had none in stock! Has anyone played these side-by-side? They're the same price, i.e., the two mahogany versions are $799 and the two rosewood versions are $899. The major differences between the previous and newest...

    Yamaha AC3R/M: Natural (Tuner) or Vintage (No Tuner)?

    Went to GC yesterday, to A-B the two Yamaha models, but they had nary a one! ...so, I tried a Taylor 114CE and 214CE. The 114CE felt cheap, and sounded flat and lifeless. OTOH, the 214CE really got my attention; it felt much more refined in my hands, had a very clear, melodic sound, and has a...

    Yamaha AC3R/M: Natural (Tuner) or Vintage (No Tuner)?

    I'm looking at the current and previous models of the Yamaha AC3R and AC3M (I have a Martin DC16GTE, so I'm leaning toward the AC3R). Apart from the finish and bracing differences, the Natural and Vintage have different electronics (and the previous version includes a tuner). Is there enough...

    Hardshell Cases for Tribute ASAT Classic?

    Guys, I pulled the trigger on a new G&L Tribute ASAT Classic (BSB), so I'm looking for a hardshell case to accommodate the slightly longer headstock on the G&L. I know that a 1SKB-FS6 won't fit (been there, done that); headstock is right up against the aluminium valance! What hardshell cases...

    pickup height on G&L asat

    Regarding the setup specs for the G&L ASAT, this is what I gleaned from the G&LDP forum (tweak as desired) : Neck Relief (6th string @ 8th fret): .010-.012 (fretting 1st & 22nd fret) Action (string height @ 12th fret): Strings 1-5 = 4/64 inch String 6 = 5/64 inch Pickup Height (fretting 22nd...

    SDOD: G&L Tribute ASAT Classic for $299

    The G&L alnico pickups probably yield a more traditional, vintage tone. I have not heard demos, nor have I heard demos of the smaller MFD's in other ASAT Classics, but I have heard demos of the giant P90-sized MFD's (as are in the ASAT Special) and those sound very full-bodied and articulate...

    G&L Tribute ASAT Classic Limited Edition!

    These are on Reverb right now for $465/BO, with FREE SHIPPING. Hmmm. thin neck? fret polishing? satin finish on the fretboard? Do you mean thin as in "Squier CV50's" thin? I hope not, 'cause I tried to play one at GC a week ago and did not like it! And even the Fender MIM Tele's don't...

    G&L Tribute ASAT Classic Limited Edition!

    Yep, that's it! Wow! $299? Makes me wonder. Don't they say, "If it's too good to be true...?" Although, the MF reviews, in general, are pretty darn convincing. I just checked MF and they currently have a "Call & Save" coupon offer, but they don't say how much off. The ash body, alnico...
