[QUOTE=Borgoguy;3998442]WCO, you ever get into Eric Schoenberg's Tiburon shop?[/QUOTE]
He is legendary; however, I saw all the fancy stuff at Guitar Solo, so I did not have the seeking spirit to visit Schoenberg. I have a 15 year old Takamine G-10 that has no inlays at all, no pickguard and a matte finish. The soundboard is not solid spruce, but it does sound good. It's enough for me. And I got Larry Coryell and John Abercrombie to sign it.
I spend $3K on Gibson L-5's. :D
This is Gibson's version of the "baby" ES-335 that Scofield plays (an Ibanez Artist from the 1980's). Much smaller than the ES 335.
