Comeon someone show some love for this guitar. I got one for christmas in 08 and Im lovin it. It's a sunburst reissue with egnator pickups. I get the sickest tone with it through almost any amplifer, especially my friends laney. Anyone have an original with dimarzios?

No A20, but I have an original A10.  Just like your A20, it sounds great through pretty much any amp.  Even my little 15 watt practice amp.  What is the neck like on the A20?  Mine has a really unique V shape that I have never seen before, it might be because it had been shaven down by the previous owner but I doubt they could have changed it that much.

Really cool guitar man, but trim the string ends!

Thanks for the compliment.  I usually do have the ends trimmed but the picture was taken right after I had changed the strings and I hadn't done it yet.

Hi Snypafromhell, I totally agree with you!!! I have a A-20 with the dimarzios and it rocks hard!!! Sounds great when I put it through anything, nice low action,and built like a tank!!! Have you got any clips of yours in action? Would love to hear them!! Take care!!!

Sorry for the long awaited reply, lol. Unfortunately i don't have pics of it in action, but I'll definately record some for you. My roommate has this totally sweet madison amp that sounds AMAZING with my a20 through it.

Also..........
Does anyone have an a20-12?

Some guy posted his a-10-12 for sale a bit ago.  I emailed him seeing if he would take trades but I haven't got a reply.  I would like one of the a 12 strings sometime as long as i want to get one.  I haven't seen an a20 twelve sting in a while, but I haven't really been searching.

 here is a live clip with the A-30 from Last night
http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=996087&songID=8579472
 Playing in a Rescue Mission and the sound guy was used to the house guitarist using a Pod. I was using a miced Fender Prosonic. Sounded ok out front but my stage volume was so low I couldn't hear myself all night and I was really struggling with the monitor mix.
