It was shipped earlier this week! The price at MF was too good to pass up!
It's a great sounding light weight guitar! I'm very happy with it! It's ideal for teaching my seven year old son some guitar basics because of it's light weight, but it's a serious guitar all the way! Awesome USA-made guitar for the price! You can't beat that! ;D
I never thought of that, but you're right. For the price, you could get one for slide and one to just have as a 'couch' guitar.
They are cool guitars that sound great and are very well made. They come in all of the iconic Gibson shapes too, but what I really like about them is the light weight. It's almost like picking up your acoustic, but without the bulk (plus an amp would come in handy. ).
