    I heard the stratotones are wrong, too heavy, neck is thin, etc.


    Too bad, I like the 54 buggers. 5 lbers!

    Gotta admit, the Jazzboxes look pretty cool.

    Tell us the story. Are they like the real stuff or did they miss it like almost every other attempt to recreate the magic of the old ones?

    I guess they're not making the "VibraJet" yet? No pics, anyway. That was my vey first electric guitar. It had built-in, battery operated tremolo!

    Bump. Give us the story on these guitars. Are they quality, how do they feel, do they sound like the old ones, do they play any better than the old stuff??????

    I would have never thought in a million years that I would see the day that Harmony Bobcats would be reissued. I guess we can thank Jack White for jumpstarting this little trend.

    Dig those volume and tone slider controls, too.

    These have that Eastwood-type look to them. I'm curious to see how they feel, and if they got the Goldtone pickups right.
