  1. Sounded excellent, brother! I really enjoyed that.
  2. @mark555 that wood grain pattern is wild on the back.
  3. @Steiner your 555 looks unlike any other I've seen. I have been keeping my eyes open for the right 535 and I came across a 555 that just seemed to be priced right although I'd make a compromise in preferred body color. Let's just say it got me thinking a bit.
  4. Yeah, it seemed to me that the difference was cosmetic. I wanted to be sure I wasn't overlooking something there. I think it will be a dot for me! Not sure I can justify the extra cash the 555 commands. Thanks for the feedback. And @High Flying Bird, I loved your story!
  5. I'm sure this has been hashed out somewhere before, but I enjoy hearing you all talk. What are the differences between 555 and 535, which do you prefer and why? I already have 155 and 150. Which would allow a greater tonal variety within the stable? Thanks in advance!
  6. Congrats! I've been eyeballing those guitars at Dave's. I just can't justify a purchase at this time.
  7. @High Flying Bird I think what I like best about that picture is the Natty Light hanging casually about your head. I'm sure that was the only one consumed that evening. Lol
  8. I appreciate all the responses so far, and while I definitely agree with @MartyGrass about good vs bad years being somewhat man-created myths we tell ourselves I am also aware that in any business there are tangible reasons behind changes that are deployed. These reasons are often surrounded by the product being created just before the changes are implemented; hence, my hesitancy for the transition-era guitars. It seems from the responses that I shouldn't be overly concerned. And, per usual, the try before you buy adage reigns supreme. I was kinda hoping you all would tell me to stay away. My wife and wallet would be happier with that advice...
  9. Curious what your take is with the guitars from '16-'17 when the company sold, but before all the changes (facility clean up, plekking, employee turnover, etc.) were made. I have a 2011 and a 2018 which are both great. Is there anything to worry about with these transition years? Should they command the same price point as pre/post transition years?
  10. Beauty. I love that matching pickguard and truds rod cover over that golden amber. Nice story. Sounds like you'll have to hold onto that one for a while.
