Wasn't sure where to post this, but I think this sub forum is likely the best spot, as opposed to the acoustic sub forum. My buddy at MF gave me a fairly good discount. On the down side, they're now charging sale tax, as of October. Crap - should have bought this last month. He did add 2 day shipping without an upcharge, so that was good. I found myself switching between electric and acoustic way too often at gigs, and we order the set list according to vocals as opposed to what guitar I use. So I'm hoping this will eliminate all that switching. I'll probably still bring another guitar as a back up, but will likely use just this one if it is suitable. I saw a Surf Green model sell on eBay for 1250 the other day. Kicking myself that I didn't bid. Would have matched my green case, too. The rep told me that these guitars will fit in a standard Tele case. Full report after it arrives on Thursday.
