New (used) Epi 339 day.

"But darling...Yes, they do look very similar, ....yes, they really are almost the same colour...but they sound different!"

Many Thanks to @laristotle for joining me for this purchase.

Did Larry join you all the way into your house carrying « his » new guitar that you’re going to rewire for him (until she forgets about it)?

This will work provided 1) you always leave one of them in the case & 2) you have yet to educate Mrs. Greco on the differences between dot, block, trapezoid & parallelogram inlays, soap bars, dog ears, humbuckers & single coils, and & trapeze, wraptail, ABR-1 & Nashville bridges.

You’re probably safe on #2 - - IME phrases like Brazilian Rosewood, cloth push back wire, audio taper potentiometer, AlNiCo IV magnet, diode clipping, etc. result in her quickly changing the subject of conversation.

Actually, to be totally honest, Mrs Greco has always been extremely supportive of me buying and selling gear. I am very fortunate.

@laristotle joined me as he was hoping to get a HSC from the same seller...but his guitar was too large across the lower bout(s?) for the case.

We stopped and enjoyed a burger on the way back from making the transaction.

I feel somewhat spoiled with getting this (very) similar guitar...but I deserve it.

Congrats Dave. Epi Twins. I’d like to hear your thoughts on an A/B comparison once you get some good time behind the new one.

3) keep her drunk so she sees two of everything.

Oh wait, that won't work, she'll think you have 4 of them, and then you're really in deep doodoo.
