    Count me as a big Big Star fan, particularly of their second album (Radio City) with its classic William Eggleston cover photo. The music is pretty solid too. :) Alex Chilton is a really good singer...

    Yep, S-100s are all 'hog. Here are the weights of my two:

    1971 Guild S-100: 6lbs, 9oz
    1973 Guild S-100: 7lbs, 4oz

    The '71 is a real ringer, even acoustically.

    Ah, right. I'd forgotten why I gave up on the notion of vibrato-ing my Aristocrat. Not a fan of the B7 or its Guild variant either. (And I have a B6 on-hand waiting for a suitable guitar.)
