    One kind :) (I hope I will not mesh with English words).

    To help a bit more ... it has two pickups but 4 controls and separately pickup switching. That PRS has only two, right? Now it could start to warm ... :)

    Oh, that was year ago in my mind, but I was lucky to test one SG (Vintage brand) and noticed that the bad balance of guitar (heavy neck/head stock vs. light body) really disturbed me. Maybe it won't harm men but I'm small girl, just 1,64cm. So nope ... not SG (not from any producers).

    To help a bit, we are still talking about known brand, nothing tiny, tiny brand which nobody will not know.

    Sorry. I guess I have teased you too much here so lets go.

    And oh, do not judge me too hard if that guitar is bad.

    It is Gretsch. I just fell in love with that one ... dark cherry guitar. It is also something which you will not face everyday. And pickups gives nice rock sound (a'la AC DC), very different from Strats.

    Very nice. I have one like that, but gold. I think you're going to really enjoy it.

    Oh, I was thinking about gold one too (but kept it too much guitar of ''Elvis'' :D). So I ended to that dark color.
    The blue one was also very nice.

    How the neck feels? It is pretty heavy guitar (specks). Is well balanced?

    It weighs about as much as an Epiphone LP standard or studio.

    Definitely body heavy, but only slightly more so than a LP. The neck is more similar to a slim 60s. It's not like a fat 50s baseball bat neck at all.

    I had a blue non trem version from guitar center that had awful fret ends, this one is nicer.

    My epi lp studio is 7lbs 11oz. And my LP standard is 8lbs 5oz, I think.

    This one is just over 8lbs

    Very nice choice! I went back to look at pics you'd posted previously of your guitars, and I must say you have a nice collection developing! At some point you stated that 7 guitars was your goal. Unless you just meant electrics, that would mean you've got a mere 2 future purchases ahead in the years to come! Do you already know what sort of features these 2 guitars will have when the time comes to buy? Just curious...

    EDIT: Seeing your other post it looks like I'm off by 1 guitar (or more?). :confused:

    Oh, I think I will need to update that opinion of mine. Better 10 guitars than 200 shoes or 100 hand bags? I hope ... :oops:

    Stop tempting me! I have always wanted a double cut Jet! And that wine color is so pretty.

    Robb's moving to Malta permanently, so we don't have to see him anymore. It'll be Lee and Pete from now on!

    I can't afford it. I'm not working at all, because Hawaii is on lockdown again, because cases, and deaths, were skyrocketing. So, until we get more stimulus money, if ever, I can't afford any more guitars. Besides, I have too many already. All I really need is one Strat and one Tele.

    Ok, I see. Well I felt it bit weird that main character? behind of Chapman guitars will test (and value) other brands in youtube.

    Anyway, I especially liked the video between 8:00 to 9:30.

    Generally speaking I like Darrel Braun Guitar's videos in youtube.
