  3. Re: Eastman vs Eastman vs Breedlove vs “budget” vintage vs ?????

    I will add that I have gigged both ways, and much prefer a mic, which is how my whole band amplifies now. The sound is much more natural, and if there is already a sound system, you can get a used...

    I have no financial interest, and I have not played one of these, but they are spoken highly of around here. This one caught my attention, but I have neither need nor budget for it. Seems like a...

    Re: Dots or no dots

    I also use the side dots only as reference points. That said, however, I love block inlays on the fretboard - I'd love to have an instrument with them some day.

    Re: Rigel pricing inquiry

    I sold my A+ deluxe more than 10 years ago for about $1200. I have looked around the web, and they seem to go between $1000 and $1500. I think $1200 is a good target. Much more, and you are...
