Just took in a Johnny Hiland signature used yesterday. Hell of a fast neck on that thing.

I played a S2 Standard 22 recently, wasn't impressed at all. Was marginally better than a worse than average 14 LP Studio.

Does a 2001 PRS Santana SE count?

I really love this guitar! Just picked it up of CL for a couple bones. It was barley played since new and I could tell. Still had original strings (corroded) and frets were corroded. Was dusty but no nicks or marks on it.

I played it with the original strings and it immediately went out of tune (ie, never played or had the strings stretched or just really corroded!)

Put a new set of polywebs on it, cleaned it, rubbed the frets down with a couple different grit of fret erasers and it's like new.. Great tone. Not quite as nice as my Gibson LP, but still, something I can enjoy more than my old daily driver (squier strat).
Has anybody placed an order for the Mark Holcomb?

Tuning Ships in Drop C

Sold both my Ibanez RG3120s so I can grab these two. 2000 purple and 2003 ten top black / grey. Got a good deal on the purple one since the only botch was that light purple stain between the PUs; the other one is more beat up but both sound and play great. I love the wide fat necks

Planning to install the Dimarzio Titans on the black one for drop C stuff and keep the purple stock for Eb. The #7 bridge is great for rock and country tones.

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!
Have owned and played (occasionally) my CE24 for a number of years and although I do like the great selection of tones available on this beautiful instrument it just doesn't feel quite right compared to my Fenders. It was set up professionally in Nashville but I had to reset the string height and intonation when back in Australia to achieve a better "feel". Is there a trick to setting up so that it plays as well as my Fenders?
