Yes - HODINKEE launches today Tuesday.

I just didn't want to wait in case they sell out quickly.

I too love the Orfina PD and the related releases by other brands...

This is my favorite...a prototype from Orfina which was never issued...

Yes - you should post an article that would be great

ChronoGuy commented on What else do you nerd out on? ·

As my wife would say - I collect guitars better than I play them.

I play all kinds of styles but I'm more competent in rock and folk than jazz.

My favorite amp combination is the Vox AC 30 in British Racing Green together with the Supro Black Magick - the combination of bright chiming guitar from the Vox and dark lord Jimmy Page from the Supro is a magical sound. I use the Dunlop MXR A/B box to switch between them and combine them - works really well. You can also keep one amp clean and use pedals with the second amp. Spread apart it creates a great stereo effect that sounds like three guitars.

Which guitar to take out in a fire - that's a tough one - I guess it would have to be my Gibson Les Paul 1959 Reissue...it's an amazing guitar...if I could take one more it would be my Taylor Koa 12-string acoustic...

Thanks for the kind words. Those are some really cool guitars! I love Danelectros - both vintage and reissues especially the ones that come with the amp-in case.

I can help you increase your guitar collection 😀 - my wife would love for me to offload some of them.

Keep on Rockin'!
