      I just saw these yesterday. They look like cheap knockoffs from the seventies/eighties. That logo looks dated for some reason.

      That said, I'd love to have one of the LP junior copies.

          I've been skeptical about buying anything guitars from GFS. The that doesn't look cheap is the tele.

              Says swamp ash with solid brass hardware. I like the DC Jr with the dark walnut stain. Could be a fun beater.

                I like Jay's typical hyped description of the finishes... smiley-lol

                We spray a single coat of old fashioned automotive paint and sand it back. The pores don't get clogged so the wood can breathe. It works. It sounds better. Louder. Fuller.

                  I'd like to try one, but I have to admit, they don't visually live up to expectation. I did go on the website, and some colours look much better than others (especially that worn walnut) but putting out a bolt-neck Les Paul type is going to make everyone think Hondo/Satellite/Kay, and not in a good way.

                    Just checked them out. Regardless of opinions on visual, I'd be hardpressed to call these guitars cheap based on those specs.

                      I'd suspect they are rather decent inexpensive guitars. I'd also suspect they might be made by AXL at their factory in China, because they just have that AXL look about them.

                        Always thought the Stray Cats were better when he was playing guitar. Still have the PRS records and the one SC one he is on as well.

                          you mean Brian Setzer? Earl Slick in Stray Cats? I missed that one.

                              Someone posted the PRS record (there were two of them). There is also a Stray Cats record which Earl Slick plays on which I was referencing.
