Whew! Man, the last few months have been a nightmare. I foolishly sold my '07 CR8 and was on the quest for a replacement. I thought it'd be fun, I don't usually shop for specific guitars and here was my chance. Wrong! It was nerve wracking, hit and miss…I went through a too heavy '05, a too expensive '12, and a few others that I never bought, including a Shanks CC that was one of the worst electric guitars I've ever played. The extreme inconsistency really freaked me out about buying online. Then this thing came up on ebay, with a make offer option, so I threw one out. We met at a price that was lower than my artist deal would be, and then he tells me that its brand new! It couldn't be advertised as such…Anyway, I am floored. Great weight, 8.6 lbs, fabulous neck(very much like my '59 Juniot), awesome plain top, great sounding pickups. Its got its first gig tonight!
