Has that sort of over-inflated look to it. Looks to be in nice shape.

I will be interested to hear your opinion of it. I think a 620 is in my future if I can find the right one.
If you can post about sound, neck etc after you play it for a while, most appreciated !

If that guy plays half as nicely as the 360/12, you'll love it. Our 360/12 plays so easily it's hard to believe it's really a 12-string. And nothing sounds quite like a Rickenbacker.

Enjoy,

jdg

I've heard good thing about the Squier Tele Classic Vibe Custom. Wish it came in other colors though. I'm not really a Fender guy but the Tele is a nice guitar. $399 is a really good price too.
I found a new R8 at GC for around $2400 last year. They also had a scratch and dent sale on some R9/R0's but the cheapest one was over $3K and most did not have the case and/or the certificate.

I'd love a R9 or a G0. I wouldn't have gotten it instead of my Standard though. I really love this thing. It's a beauty and the Standard in HCSB is my Grail. I'd like to get a Traditional Plus or a R9 later on. That would be the cherry on top.

Some of the boys have been talking about puttin' the band back together. I'm pretty clumsy with the electric guitar, but I found that wearing my sunglasses, in the dark, with a half a pack of cigarettes, seems to help.

Anyone have an opinion on speakers? Specifically the Celestion G12 Greenback, Vintage 30 and a Warehouse Guitar Speaker Veteran 30.

I'm thinking about replacing my Celestion G10N-40. I'm looking for a warmer classic rock sound.

I have Vintage 30s and Greenbacks crossed in my Marshall. Sounds awesome.

I'm wanting to put one in my Blackstar HT-5. Only problem is it's cramp in the cabinet and I think I'll have to move a power tube and OPT so there's enough room to clear the magnet. I've been on the BS forums as well as mylespaul trying to get more information on what needs to be done but it's an uphill battle. The easy way would be to use a G10H instead of the G12H but I want more lows.

Who was it who bought a HT-5 here? Was it a Combo? I need some pictures and maybe a few measurements if you're atill around.

I can't do hyperactive kid music anymore...the tempo is just too fast for a sluggish old guy. I'm going to have to sit out Poke Salad Annie and Papa's Got a Brand New Bag.
