    i don't think I would use an electric 12 enought to drop that much on one. I keep waiting for a sweet deal on a dano dc-12 to come along though.

        yeah the dano 12s are in my regular GAS rotation. its just a matter of me gassing for one, and their being one I like on ebay at the same time.

          looks good. though he's wrong about each string being adjustable. each pair of strings is adjustable. but if your intonation is off between octave strings, there's nothing you can do about it.

              Ummm...

                yes, but it was a reissue of a guitar that was made for boogie, so it does not have any of that direct boogie inspiration, making it unsuitable for real boogie.

                if you want re-issued boogie, then that's your guitar.

                personally, i prefer chuck's boogie:

                "we boogied in the kitchen
                we boogied in the hall
                i got some on my finger
                and i wiped it on the wall."

                    Is it just me or does MF have the most unabashed bull****************ters in the world writing their product descriptions? "light weight for a toneful sound"... what the ****************!? It's fun to wade through their lies while on the crapper, I can imagine a 27 year old advertising major who's never picked up a guitar in his life thinking of different ways to use "tone."


                    I interviewed for a writing position with Musician's Friend a few years back. Actually a nice bunch of guys. Of all the jobs I've been turned down for, that was the one where I truly felt they screwed up big time...I would have rocked in that job and they missed out. No one could have done that better than me! But I digress....
                    First of all, all the writers there are musicians themselves. Only office I've ever seen where everyone gets to have an instrument sitting next to their desk to noodle around on... very cool.
                    Anyway... they call those product spotlights "Advertorials". They certainly are not free. Manufacturers pay $15,000 for a full page "advertorial". If you were a Musician's Friend writer would point out a product's flaws?
                    One last note: pay particular attention to the "author's" name on those "advertorials". Those guys have lots of fun making up those names! I've seen a few doosies make it past the screeners a few times.

                      Understood, I don't think they'd sell a lot of their Rogue stock if they claimed it "sounds kind of like a good guitar dipped in ****************."

                      The biggest problem from your post is that you've now given me a horrific new desire to work for them .
