Thanks man, it works fine now, you're a very lucky guy!

Beautiful looking guitar.

I was just playing fellow TGP'er Benster's Gretsh guitars thinking to myself it would be cool to have the same features in a solid body electric! Great playing too man, I'm gonna watch the rest of the reviews. :D

Thanks for the kind words. I was going to buy a Gretsch as well, but I couldn't get over the price for an MIJ CNC guitar, when I could get this level of quality instead... so i went this way :)

I completely agree with you on the price point.

But you should see and play one in person, the mere presence of the guitar makes you wanna own one. LOL. My buddy has a White Falcon and a Chet Atkins model, pass one to me and I wouldn't have the slightest idea what to play on a guitar like that.

I tried a 6120 in amber with the flames. A delightful guitar, but still about $1000 too expensive for me. Nothing bad to say about the guitar, but just not worth $2600 *to me*...

Anyways back to the Cajun Gentleman :D

What kind of neck profile is on the guitar? And what about the neck finish?

I also noticed you have an Anderson Cobra with a mahogany neck and mahogany body? How do you find that in comparison to the Melancon? I've been toying around with the idea of buying a tele style guitar too.

The neck finish on the Mel is somewhat satin-like. The profile is way too thin for me, that's the only thing I don't like about it, but I think I can learn to deal with it :)

The Anderson neck is a thing of a beauty in terms of feel. Also too thin for me, which is why my Crook Tele remains my #1.

If you want a Tele-like guitar, there are a lot of choices... may I recommend Rich and Chris Rice at www.RiceCustomGuitars.com? :)

It's kind of odd to have a volume and then a master volume...a total of two. Gretsches have three with the Filtertron wiring scheme. One for each pup and then a master to control volume without disturbing the volume setting for each pup. Are you sure there aren't two volumes and one tone knob under the bigsby?

Always been curious about the cajun gentleman, sounds great in the video, nice playing. I want some kind of gretsch vibe in a boutique guitar, still thinking about either a custom Koll, Thorn, Hamer, and now this.
