    Maybe:   2020 JB, CAR Metallic on Empress; Blocks (on carib. RW board); Matching head stock;  7.5 lbs.

    Jive ass JB2 Tribute; natural, RW,  8.5 lbs           Don’t have the same strings on both but they are reasonably fresh good quality.   Seems like I play better and am more at home on the Tribby.     Am I the only one?

    Tributes only lack in options and finishes.  I would own only tributes if anything besides the L2k came in lefty.

    I would say my option order SB-2 is better than my custom shop Kilo.

    I’d say you’re pretty lucky…

    … and you saved at least 15%, by switching to GEICO.

    I have 3 Tributes: 2017 L-2500, 2000 Tookay (MIJ), 2002 Tookay (MIJ) and they all play better than my 1996 L-5500 Fullerton. I have two more USAs on the way so the jury is out but we’ll soon see.

    The Coberator. My other car is a Rocinante.

    If that’s the case, maybe sell the OpOrder 2020 and buy three more Tribbys?

    I wish I would’ve bought that beat up blue SB-2 Tribby I saw on Reverb a couple of weeks ago.
