    You guys that have taken delivery of your
    Benavente's lately should have let them
    go to NAMM so I could try them all out on
    Friday morning at 10:00am sharp! Mine
    will be there with new J S Tech pick ups
    loaded in it. Brian says it sounds very 'thick".
    I can't wait to try it out with the new pickups.

    Edit: Oops..sorry Hman your Vortex is beauty!
    Yours too John!!!:D
  12. Very nice!

    James, you should get a Vortex or a Vintage Vortex! Very different feel to the 51P. You'll love it! I must work on a new Benavente family photo for you.:D
  16. Wow! I think yours and John's Benaventes are the nicest I've seen. I like them better than the neck thru SC versions.

    Thanks Jeff...I like my SC5 very much too! It has a rounder neck than the vortex and 51p. Both necks has low and fast action. It just feels right to me.

    BTW, love to see your Nordstrand SC soon!

  18. That's what I'm thinking.... I can't wait to see that black vintage vortex assembled
