Great deal for a brand new guitar, but if you wanna save some extra money (like $400), pick one up a partially used one on Reverb. You can also save on shipping costs as well if you find someone selling it locally!

That's true in most cases, but this price is cheaper than all of the used guitars of this model that are currently listed on Reverb. This doesn't take haggling into account, obviously, but this is a REALLY good price for this guitar.

12 inch neck radius? Is that right? Kinda fat if it is.

It's a 12" fretboard radius which is fairly standard for Gibson, Gretsch and many others. Fender offers several models with a 12" radius as well. It indicates a flatter fretboard than say a 9.5" of a modern Fender, and rounder than the 16" radius of most Martins. It does not indicate the profile of the neck itself.

The lowest sold price for a G6228 on Reverb was $1249 and everything else was $1299 and up.

I have fairly short stubby fingers and am looking to buy a guitar. I don't play but would like to learn.

Is the 9.5" radius of a Fender easier to use than the others? I like the sound of Fender and Gibson Les Paul.

A flatter fretboard radius allows for more extreme string bending and lower useable action (string height across the fretboard). I actually prefer a 7.25" vintage radius on my Fenders over a flattter one. As far as whats easier, it's just personal preference. I pretty much own one of everything, I don't care for wide nuts, super shallow necks or really thick ones. A made in Mexico Fender player series is probably a good starting point that you wont soon out grow if you're looking to learn. Your preference in guitars will evolve as your learn and become more familiar with the instrument.

Jumped on this today. Was watching it at $1399, but $1299 with their 5% off credit card offer brought it down to $1234 plus taxes. That's pretty slick for a Terada factory guitar. Can flip it easily if its not my thing. Turns out you can use that credit card for %5 off of all products from Adorama, or get promotional financing. I'm sure I'll be using it again soon.
