The Beef - It's In The Guitar
Why get a skinny one when you can have a full-rounded lady?
The guitar arrived in fine shape again from Sweetwater and Alex (and Spencer) does a great job on putting up with me. What can be said about such a beasty meaty guitar? Well, first put the guitar strap more on your shoulder instead of in the crevice between neck and shoulder and wiggle around more when you play the guitar, and back pain will usually go away. As to the solidness of this guitar, it is solid, and I am a glutton for the pain and the misery of a full-bodied solid guitar. But not only that, it sounds great also with the '57 pickups (my favorites) and retain its character for many a year. When you pick up the guitar and feel the neck of the guitar you know the beef is there and its all good. As for boxes, I tend to rip those up gaining more strength in the upper body area. Now to the guitar case, a little smaller perhaps then the old brown cases of long ago, but still the guitar is fitted snugly in the case with an abundant amount of padding. Ripping the guitar strap off of the guitar when putting the guitar in the case will make sure you can play this monster of a guitar for years in the future. Okay enough joking around, I have to change strings and play my new music, rock & roll jazz while I put normal strings on this fine gitar I bought. Perhaps some blues, perhaps some jazz, perhaps I better practice and quit writing out a review. Bye, and let the fat lady sing!
