Kind of fell in love. Can you guess which? I don’t have it yet but I’ll share that story with you shortly.

Since the Canadian economy is tanking, I'd think you'd go with the lowest price one.

Holding my breathe now to find out which one.


Hmm, nice to have money in your pocket when you visit a music store.  I can only now afford strings.  And maybe a hundred yen guitar pick.


Actually now that I re-looked at your post, your grin gave it away.  LOL

It’s the Epiphone Century Olympic. It was used but it looked like nobody ever touched it. That means it was much cheaper than a new one. However, it had an issue. The high E string didn’t come through the piezo pickup but they are fixing it and putting it on hold for me.

I think that is the lighter sunburst. Congratulations in advance. Sounds like it will be a versatile instrument. Look forward to hearing more once you get it.

Looks like a hollow body... only 5 lbs and solid spruce top! Sounds like a nice guitar. Hope you get it soon!

Kind of fell in love...with classic "f" Hole.  Words you don't expect to see on the same thread.

Mazel Tov, Robert!  Ah, the warmth of NGD.
