    Did you see that amazing 8 string archtop in this thread?

    Saul told me that my Jr should ship this Monday. I can't wait to get it!

    :D

    I'm thinking about ordering one. Does that count:)
    I can't decide what model to get.
    Its between the Duo Glide or a Tornado.
    I'm leaning towards a Tornado but...............the Dou glides are so cool!

    I need another guitar like I need a hole in my head but I'd love a Glide and a Tornado.

    I hear ya! Between amps and guits, I'm break'in the bank! I have a Glide coming with Lollar P90's, chambered, no F-holes. I would like a Superior or Tornado with a set neck 24 3/4, a HB in the bridge position and a single coil in the neck. Maybe Korina body and neck..

    Saul is working on a Gretsched out Duo Glide and a 2 P90
    Jr. Glide for me. The Duo Glide is chambered Korina with a Black
    finish with 2 TV Jones + Pups and a Bigsby B5 tailpiece. The
    Jr. Glide is Mahogany with 2 lollar P90s in a TV wheat/white
    see through finish and wrap around tailpiece.

    The waiting is the hardest part. I know these 2 guitars will
    be exceptional, because that's what Saul does. He designs and
    builds superior instruments. The guitar he just built for Elliot
    Sharp has my gears spinning out of control right now. I
    believe it's on a thread in the Dealers Emporium. Look if you dare.

    i have a 'gretsched out' duo glide - its the guitar that i wish either of gretsches i've owned was. I have friends who think its the best sounding guitar they've ever heard. best of luck, you are going to love that guitfiddle.

    That's a nice pair. Bet you get a very diverse assortment of
    sounds. Gretsch and P90, looks like you beat me to the punch,
    or is it that great minds think alike.

    ...or fools never differ...

    i play with bleds who posted his guitar in this thread

    his has a pair of lollars. i kinda prefer the hds for me & lollars for him. zeppo has a super cool super glide (on sauls site in front of the /13 amp) with nice lollars as well, but also has the tornado with a jazzmaster trem & hds which is super nice.
