    Yeah. I can picture Thin Lizzy doing it. I can totally hear that, in my head. And it sounds awesome

    Yes, I agree with that. I was hearing Skynyrd doing it.

    What I wasn't hearing was "Metal"?

    I have heard Framus is making less expensive models that they are importing from China. I didn’t know if they had an Idolmaker in that lineup.

    I hear those guitars are actually quite good. They are the same factory who is manufacturing the Warwick Rockbass series basses.
