    It’s even better than the internet said it would be! Super light, perfect neck, just the right amount of aging... and it rings for days. Still need to dial in the setup a bit, but she’s a real keeper! I’m blown away. Go buy one.

    Nice! Have fun with it. My Springfield still is a wonder to play.

    That is sexy! :drool Congrats. :aok
    I bought a new K-Line T 6 or 7 years ago. Alder body w/Rosewood board. Had Lollar pickups.
    A J Street bridge and I think(?) a '52 neck.
    Wonderful guitar. Sadly parted with it.

    I had an early K- Line S model. Although it was a really good guitar, I could never get past the idea that it was, in the end, a Partscaster. I picked up a Truxton from the emporium a few days ago and am extremely impressed. Light, resonant very well made and quite a player. I think Chris has this guitar building thing down.

    My San Bernardino is amazing. I have the larger U neck that fills your hands like a thick a**. It is glorious.

    I picked up a used Springfield with a 12” radius RW board and med C neck locally. Awesome guitar...right up there with my FCS 69.

    That's awesome - love the black custom. I got my Truxton about 5 or 6 years ago and it's everything I hoped it would be and then some. Can't recommend Chris' work enough.

    Unfortunately some people seem to ding him for having started as a partscaster guy (not that there's anything wrong with that either), but K-Lines have been made fully in-house for a long time now and he does it as well as anybody!

    I have an early K-Line S-style. It may be a " partscaster ", as you say, but I love it to pieces. :cool:

    That’s a nice guitar in the OP.

    I’ve had a few K-Lines and still have an old Springfield, but I’d really like to try a hardtail Del Mar and see what those foil pickups are all about.

    As a K-Line owner, I'm not surprised.

    I saw a video the other day with a dude shredding a Springfield. MAN, I want one.

    Thanks for all the compliments everybody, it's a great guitar! Got a new set of strings today. Still trying to decide if I'm a tele guy or not but man what an instrument...

    If you decide you’re not a Tele guy I call first dibs on that K-Line!!

    Hey I'll definitely keep that in mind! Truly, you'll be the first to know. I'm going to give it another month or two and really commit to playing it regularly. I've played Les Pauls for so long that anything other than that feels like such a departure! But MAN does it sound so good. I actually my even slightly prefer its tones to Les Paul tones.

    What kind of pickups did you get?
