I like to keep my guitars as “stock“ as possible but I also like to get the most out of my instruments. The Roller Bridge really helped my Gretsch w/Bigsby, and I expect that my SG with Vibrato would stay in tune a little better.
I bought a Kirk Douglas new. Was that 2013? It seems more recent than that. It’s the original burgundy with white pickguard. It’s a beautiful guitar and I don’t think I would sell it for as little as $3,000.
I’m not much for black, but that one takes my breath away. Both guitars are absolutely stunning!
I have the original Kirk Douglas released a few years ago. That one is still my favorite but I could see the green ending up at my house too.
I think they might be sold out.
I noticed a used 61 Reissue for sale locally. I REALLY don’t need another guitar, but it’s such a pretty thing, I need to at least try to justify it.
What are the differences between a ‘61 Reissue and a Standard?
57 Classic PICKUPS vs 490’s. What else?
Unfortunately I use them all during the GREAT monthly rotation. I can’t sell a single one. I’ve never been a golfer, and I think this is why.
Someone mentioned “no room for chicks” in the truck That might be my fatal flaw, although it makes my wife happy.
My Kirk Douglas is probably my Holy Grail SG. It’s a replica of a ‘69 Custom (I think). My first SG was a Walnut with single coil white pickups and pickguard. I think I like them all.
I had a Rickenbacker 360 12 string that I had a love hate relationship with. The love side of it was the sound and the pencil neck was the other side.
We finally parted when I fell in love with a Martin D28 with shaded top. The Martin and I are still living happily ever after.
