A little patience paid off, and I got a nice little 'burst model, no digsby (per my earlier stated preference). Came nicely set-up, very low action. Still learning about the Goldtones - my main amp at the moment is a black face vibrochamp. They seem to make a nice pair. Got it for 3 and change. Oh, and after playing a 9 lb Les Paul for the past few years, the M75 seems anorexic by comparison.<br /> <br /> So...this'll have to do until I scrape together the scratch for a vintage Aristocrat. (and who knows - some soapbar P90's may be in this little axe's future).<br /> <br />

Welcome! My M72 gets more playing time than any other humbucker guitar I have. The Goldtones are nice pickups--don't rush to the P90s.

Frank, I'll confess if I make the PUP change it'll be a vanity move - I just like the /look/ of those soapbar P90's on these sunburst Guild/DeArmonds. So far I'm totally happy with the sound of the Goldtones - I was thinking they'd be somewhat "tinny", but plugged<br /> into my 67 Vibrochamp they sound plenty warm.<br /> <br /> In general I'm just really blown away by the build quality of these Korean guitars...

Cool! So is the M75 the M77t without the Digsby and different pickups? T

Professor, exactly! Doesn't the M75T/77T come with the single coil 2k pups?<br /> <br /> The guitar is really like new. It looks like someone bought it, and for whatever reason, just tucked it away and never got it out to play.
