A couple of questions:
1. My guitar strap does not fit on the end pin as the end pin is too big. Has anybody tried the D'Addario Cinchfit or something similar?

2. I'd like to get a regular gig bag and Sanjuro recommended the Road Runner Roadster Little Brat soft case. Does anyone know where to find one of these cases? I've had no luck. If not, is there another case you'd recommend?

Thanks.
Ray
For the endpin question, I second the tapastring recommendation.

For the gig bag, Ive got the Journey roadtrip gig bag and love it.

Cheers...

Agree on the Road Trip bag. Its perfect if you do not need to break down the guitar.

I just went down to the local music store and acquired a Guardian Vintage CG-090-C1/2 ("Classic, 1/2 size") gigbag for use when I need something to store or carry the OF660 in, but I don't want to break it down.

It's very cheap (under $30 at the store I get a discount from 'cause I'm a "professional" by the broadest possible definition of the term, and I go to that store a lot), and padding is thin. I would never get one for a wood guitar other than a Pacific Rim laminated wood student model. But it's a perfect fit for the Journey, and adequate for local use.

Almost like it was custom built for Journey's little travel guitar. I use case when at the house, and of course the backpack case is used when I'm on the road. Here's some pics of the case.


What an update for an already excellent review!

I thought some Journey owners might be interested to see the OF660 with Gotoh tuners. Amazingly, the Gotoh 510 are direct replacement for the Grover minis that come with the Journey. No drilling needed. Easy.

I added ebony buttons to these Gotoh which are much lighter than the solid metal buttons.

To my eyes, the black buttons somehow give the guitar a slightly more balanced look. The silver buttons gave me the impression the headstock was very small (it is), but with the Gotoh, it appears just a bit larger. Again, to my eyes.

I like the look. It fits fine in the Journey backpack bag.

The Grovers that come with it are nice working tuners but I like 1:21 ratio Gotoh--and they are very, very smooth.

Here are some comparison photos.

It's amazing the difference different tuning pegs make. Looks really nice.

Where did you get these ebony ones from? I'd love to change some on my guitars to wood ones, either rosewood or ebony.

http://www.lmii.com/ has a number of variations for reasonable prices (except for shipping!)

I also have a set of the oval shaped ebony. Not sure which I like best yet.

Yes, it's Sagework, formerly Barnett.
