If you absolutely need to be heard over that Godforsaken banjo, then this is the jazz box for you .

There is an exact copy of my Blackstone on eBay right now for about $1695.00, I think. A reasonable and fair price for this vintage and quality.
It looks to be in good playable condition, check it out, if this is the tone shape you prefer.
Hmm, I will mostly play it solo and for writing, no real need for loudness, so I think I'll stick to Gibson, as "delicate" seems closer to what I am looking for.
