Very pretty... I think that's the one I almost bought. I'm glad it went to the hands of someone who appreciates what they're holding. Very very nice.

Enjoy

Well,

I don't think it is too premature to announce that this guitar is on its way back to me. I sold it to a fellow club member at one point, and he was kind enough to contact me when he decided in turn to sell it, to see if I might want it back. I didn't have to think long . . . Now I just need to endure the waiting.

Thanks Dave. I am particularly excited it has been upgraded with essence electronics by the previous owner, so it will be like a whole new guitar for me. I have been thinking about maybe replacing the knobs with wood and some other changes when my financial situation settles down.

Hey Bill,

That is my Giffin Model-T custom. You can see a few photos here:

Both the Giffin and the baritone are sweet!

Thanks Harry, although I don't think either one has quite the WOW factor as your double neck.

That might be so, but I bet they don't have the "oh my back" factor either!

Thanks for the kind words Mike. You were correct about the essence upgrade really opening up the voice on the guitar. Best of Luck!

Kevin
