    Perhaps there was a running change in the vintage ones. I have heard from several sources that the old Starfires had the same pickup balance problem, but specs have been known to change, and back in...

    My impression is that Cordoba doesn't intend to address this issue. As I understand it, this is vintage accurate, by why replicate an error which could be easily corrected?

    Agreed: if they're going to do it they need to do it right. IMHO, the Artist Award is one of the best, if not the best, sounding factory-built archtop. If they decide to continue the line, they need...

    JMO: I'd be surprised if they did any US made electrics with the possible exception of a prestige priced Artist Award.

    Frankly, I'm not all that impressed with Córdoba. It think that they bought...

    Same thing here. I was going to think of something outrageous to say and try to pass it off as crack inspired.

    How you doing, Gadfly?

    For my purposes the master volume is all but essential. As a general rule, I avoid tweaking the pickup volumes; I usually end up forgetting that I've changed the settings and have an unpleasant...

    I continue to enjoy mine. I play it a lot. It's perfect for my morning practice session which is some very specific flat-pick work and a number of Chet Atkins arrangements and a couple of Jerry Reed...

    I'm very pleased with mine. It's got an incredible sound that is versatile and interesting. It's the ES-175 I always wanted, and a while it more.

    I think you are right about this. The CE 100 has a very powerful resonance in the lower register; think Duane Eddy sounds. Apparently that really hooks up with the bridge pickup and, at least in my...

    I had the same experience. The Capri seems to work well with these pickups. My Starfire III is marginal and the T-400 was awful.

    I'm amazed by how good Speyburn is, especially considering that it costs not much more than rot-gut.

    Sounds like the UPS store at work. They run something that is akin to a scam; if they didn't pack it at the store then they claim that UPS will probably not honor damage claims. As I understand it,...

    Now that is odd. I'm a moderator at Gretsch-Talk and I have an affinity for single malt scotch. Perhaps moderating drives one to drink. :)

    My guitar heroes tend to be few and far between; Chet Atkins, Johnny Smith, Hank Garland, Howard Roberts . . . and now Glen Campbell. The video you posted, plus other...

    Mine had a definite deficit with regard to the bridge pickup output. The bridge pickup was as high as it could be and it still crapped out in comparison to the neck pickup, when set at the same...
