    Just picked this up , I wanted a Lp jr type guitar and this one more than does the trick. Never owned a Robin before so I did not really know what to expect but these are really top notch guitars . Plays and sounds great . I have to give thanks to Super Sound in SD for a great deal , came set up perfect , great store to deal with and a TGP member too, I thnk.
    If you looking for a junior type guitar , I am no expert but you may want to consider one of these among all the other great ones out there .

    Cool one piece mahogany body!

    I just got one also.. mine is Fakimba....with a tv yellowish color.

    The pickup can also be swapped out with any Rio Grande humbucker... will fit no problem. BUT that Rio P90 is a great pickup!

    Loving mine so far.. I'll try to put up some better pics soon!

    Robin has always been a good builder. I don't know why they aren't better recognized but I do know you hardly ever see any used ones for sale.

    Nice guitar. Yes - Robins are under-appreciated.
