Nice! What was the dealer response to the lamination issue?

Comment by Robert Williamson on March 10, 2015 at 6:17am

While I was showing the defective Hellcat to dealer

another customer asked me to audition a couple guitars for him. He was buying his dad one and didn't feel he could choose properly. I forget what the 1st one was, but the second was a California Series Sonoran. It has a nice loud warm tone, it was even suitable for fingerstyle. The fellow bought it and kept trying to pay me for testing them for him.  I refused of course, but i did suggest  to the store owner he owed me a commission. :)

Here's another post with eye candy of my 1980 FJ-70 (jumbo sunburst!).  Found it a good home this past w/e.

Greetings!  New member here.

Recently purchased a beautiful 1980 Fender FJ-70 sunburst jumbo acoustic.  Picture and review here:

Since then also just picked up a 1980 Fender F-50 (review will be up tomorrow).  Love these vintage Fender acoustics!

As mentioned before, I rock with an Epiphone AJ-100 and with, this, my Fender CD-110 for Drop-D tuning.
