    New Guitar Day... Whoa...

    I have been reading about how much everyone, who has one, seems to love their 20th Silhouettes. I was able to find one and get a pretty fair price on it so I pulled the trigger. I picked it up today and WOW! Its a stunner visually speaking and it sounds like nothing else. Its voice seems to be very different from the standard Silhouette. I swapped the pickups out of my standard Silo to get a little bit meatier sound, but the pickups in the 20th seems to have higher output? Maybe it's the wood combo? I don't know, but it sure is awesome.... Anyway:

    Nice find! Did you buy it from someone local to you? I keep an eye on the for sale forum and remember something in Rochester that I wanted (along with half the other guitars in the f/s forum).

    Mmm, waffle top. The 20ths are so damn nice. I saw 2 in 12th Fret in Toronto about 3ish years back. Should have tried one!

    congrats on the new guitar!

    if i recall correctly I'm not sure if the pups are voiced differently, but the guitar does have 500k pots.

    that's a fantastic guitar... the 20th is my go to and i love it. if you want a killer combo put a Dimarzio AT-1 in the bridge and a Air Classic in the neck... it's a delish combo.
