    I picked up a DC3 last year, sick of waiting for my dream combo of maple board, birds, and seafoam to appear. And it is a fine DC3 with great heritage, as it turns out - @sergiodeblanc and another forumite are previous owners. Beautiful burst finish. Just not seafoam.

    There is now one that matches my checklist exactly listed on Reverb. Someone from this forum please buy it and promise to sell it to me in a couple years when I have enough cashflow to justify buying a second!

    It is, unfortunately, a case of "It's a verrry nice, I already got one!"

    Nah, that whatever-burst it has is too nicely done. And I do like the look of wood, and generally prefer even a plain wood to a solid color. I just got smitten with seafoam after a Jake Owen concert. (No, I'm not kidding.)

    This alway happens. I just blew a buncha dough on two mic preamps and a backup Neumann mic.

    That is one sweet guitar at a decent price.

    I feel the sea foam love! Man... if I hadn’t been lured into a Santana, I would’ve painted it myself already. I was like, weeks away from doing it.

    BAE‘s 1073 was the exciting buy, but also another Focusrite ISA. Horses for courses.
