Does anyone have any opinions on the Epihone EL-00 Pro?  I bought one online, and I'm loving it...I know it's supposed to be a cheap guitar, but man...IMHO...this thing is great!

The Rnj models I have are very well put together.  Other than the different b/s wood(flame maple vs. African Mahogany) they are made as follows...Grade AA Canadian Sitka tops> rosewood fret board and straight bridge>Binding on body and neck(the 25 has 3 ply body and the 26 has single ply)>3 ply rosette>hand rubbed nitro finish> 1/4 scalloped Sitka X bracing>dove tail joint>Greg Rich m.o.p. markers>Grover 3 on a strap closed V138N tuning heads>bone nut and compensated saddle>ivoroid pins>comes with Ej-16's.  That'll give you an idea of what RK put out for a very short time.  I'm very fortunate to have found both in good shape. ...J.d.

I am a fan of the RK RNJ-Lucas series.  Just picked up the last of a couple "old, new stock" Rnj-26 Limited Blk (Sitka/hog) to go with my Rnj-25(Sitka/maple). Both are short scale, out of production models and quite a value for the 00 deep body fan.  [URL=][IMG][/IMG][/URL]  [URL=][IMG][/IMG][/URL]

I play a Wechter TO 8418.  It's one of the best guitars I have ever owned.  It's as loud as a train, but it's awesome to play it fingerstyle.  I can't put it down.

Strummer - pretty guitar!  Play her in good health... :-)

Robert - another Guild for sale soon?  ;-)

Comment by Strummer07 on February 2, 2014 at 1:42am

2 and a 1/4 inches or 59mm spacing at the bridge and about 54mm at the centre of the soundhole. She's good for picking ... which is why I selected her and the neck profile is more "C" than "D" which is comfy ( for me) I didn't care for the very fat "D" of the Sigma's nor the very pronounced "V" of the Washburns.

The slot headed tuners and the pyramid bridge along with the aged stain to the top give it a great air of authenticity.

I can't fault it for the price. Yes I'd have liked a Martin John Mayer Signature 00..... but this will do me just fine ! :-)

That's a very pretty guitar.  I like the pyramid bridge.  It reminds me of Maggie's 1921 OO-18 (above)

Strummer.....what's the spacing at the saddle for the Tanglewood?  Sure looks comfy for some couch picking!  Jd

Congrats on the new addition Strummer07.

Like the slot head tuners too!
