    Hey justin!

    I just scored on of these from the 'bay and was wondering if you've ever used one, as I know your fond of weird old hollowbodies ;)
    Any opinions?


    Thanks!

    I used to have one as well. It sounded killer but the neck was a little wonky so I let it go.

    How would you compare it to say, a Guild Starfire? That's what I was really looking for, however they're damn near impossible to find these days, and when you do find them they're upwards of $3000!

    Thanks! :bassist:

    It didn't compare. Not as rich or full-bodied in tone..
