Nothing out of the ordinary . . .

I played an Americana at a guitar store back in Iowa over the 2007 Xmas holiday and was really impressed that it didn't sound or play like a toy . . . I knew that I would buy one eventually. I bought mine in March of 2008, when MF started blowing them out (I think I paid $99). I went with the "Way Out West" because the motif was so odd: Cowboys fleeing in terror while steers are being sucked up into UFO's . . . nothing tough, sexy, or nostalgic about that. This was also my first FMIC Gretsch, as the purchase of my Bamboo Annie was still of few months in the offing.
