1 giffenf 4 months ago Went in to TrueTone to pick up something I'd left there and also a set of bass strings, and what did I see on the used wall? Well, a Historic 3166 with humbucker-sized TV Classics and a hardshell case tagged at $695 (all prices are negotiable at TrueTone, some more than others depending upon what it is):I plugged it in and played it, it's got a very Gretschy tone and plays well.But this one really caught my eye:A 2003, Terada-made Super Axe. In spotless mint condition, like new, still has the plastic on the pickguard and control covers, FMIC-style serial number. Prototype? That's what they believe. Action so low you can play it with one hand, not sure what a Super Axe is SUPPOSED to sound like, but it doesn't sound like any hollow, semi-hollow, or solidbody Gretsch I can recall. Pretty jazzy in the neck position, and kinda 335-ey in the other two. And at least as thin as a Hofner Verythin. Exceptionally cool, and if you're looking for one of these, here ya go: Tagged at $2195.No affiliation with the seller other than that I like to shop there. If you're interested, ask for the "Friend of Frank (Giffen or Stallone)" price, and you'll get a good deal either way.
