    So I’ve got a bunch of stuff up on the bay, and while checking out my auctions I stumbled upon this...

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/312581997401

    I have an old Aria hollow body that needs a ton of work that I should do something with, but I kiiiinda rather get this instead. I remember seeing Tim Armstrong from “Rancid” playing what looked like a single pickup ES-330, (which I of course can’t find a picture of now) and thought it was super cool. Anyway this King thing was listed along with a bunch of Cozart guitars, and we like those, right? I mean, it’s cheap enough that I “should” be able to fix it... like I need more projects. Plus there were all those cheap Firefly things last year that I missed out on. Anyway has anyone here gotten a King or a Cozart semi hollow?

    I like it "Very Much".
    Single p90, two knobs, should growl just fine.
    Let us know if it turns out to be a "nice surprise" :)

    Sharp--love the simplicity! Could be a nice jazzer, a la Grant Green.

    Well I’m partly relieved (I really shouldn’t be buying more guitars) and kind of upset, because I was really looking forward to one of these... 9F5E909A-F3A5-4843-B661-3D003AA53134.jpeg 95923626-6E09-4768-AD74-7D95BF6F8231.jpeg

    Saved yourself a bunch of cash not buying this one.

    Your guitar might get you in the ballpark with that Gibson, and think of the $$$ you'll have left over for vacation when we can get out again!
