    That's because we knew you'd handle it Banjo.

Good luck in your search.

    Glenn, first off, thank you very much for all your info and interest in helping. It's greatly appreciated. Just to be clear, you're saying if the HH has Tele type knobs that's an indicator the guitar has a tap? Is there any other way to identify that feature? You're right, it would be a very handy thing to have, and even if I buy one without, it will get one. Thanks again!

    Greg, not a problem and glad to help. Not really to the best of my knowledge. Though people like me prefer the Tele style knobs even when a guitar doesn't have a coil tap. My AL HH doesn't have one, but I've been planning on adding it, just can't ever seem to find the time.

    Good luck, Greg they are out there it's just a matter of find the one for you. Remember that if you buy from GC they'll ship from one location to one close by you to check it out before you buy it.

    Hahahahaha, that's how I got my first all MM90's. It had been floating around the GC's since 2001. I got it as NOS, great guitar at a super buy. But EBMM fixed up the issues with it, fret sprout and stuff and it was better than new.

    Well they're discounts can really be pretty good. Just remember that EBMM's come with a case, the last thing you wanna do is be getting stuck buys a case. That's new of course. Hopefully the used ones have them too.

    You got it! I crack jokes at their expense a lot, but in all honesty I've gotten a few really nice guitars for a good deal exactly as you describe. I'm looking at a couple of ALs right now from them. They have a good return policy, and I do like to have them ship something to a local-to-me store so I can try before I buy. There's good and bad with 'em all, just like folks.

    Well, after looking, lusting, and lurking I found one that fit the bill. So there's a NGD in my future soon. I expect to have it sometime next week (UPS/FEDEX, do NOT go on strike!). Ivory White 2012 AL HH. I am pretty sure it's one of the GC models because 1. Tele knobs 2. GC store that had it said it had been bought new there and traded back in. I'm pretty excited. Thanks again to you all for the welcome and the advice/thoughts. it's appreciated!

    Congrats! A GC special AL is one of the most versatile electric guitars on the planet.
    As long as you like how it plays / feels after you set it up to your specs, you'll be very happy...
