    Same here.
    I used to write/play a lot switching between Les Paul and Strat, both very decent guitars I will never give away. The RL Vela is the "default" guitar and I played it live last Saturday all evening.
    All the tunes come out of that one guitar so nicely. So no changing guitars...adjusting sounds. I tell myself "I need to spend more time with the Les Paul (as it used to be the No1)"...but then the Vela is so light and the neck has the smooth back.
    (the Strat has that "sanded/dirty neck" which is perfect, but: you don't do that to a 58 re-issue Les Paul)

    Wow. That is REALLY nice with the new pickguard. I think the toggle tip and lampshades go very well with it. Nice!!!

    I was just thinking, “what this thread needs is some deposed Filipino leader reference material”...and voila!

    Guys, I have been lurking here for awhile. Just wanted to give a heads up to those still looking to get a Vela, Willcutt guitars has some Velas up right now. Eric said they were some unexpected arrivals.

    Tell him Danny sent you :)

    If either of those turn into CEs, and I can get my hands on one, I will!

    That's going to make a big guitar - and it doesn't bookmatch all that well. :rolleyes:

    They listed 5 on Reverb yesterday afternoon. All were still available around midnight my time, all were sold by the time I looked again at about 7:30 this morning.

    COOL
    thing is, Willcutt was selling them at suggested retail, not gouging the price. :) Thanks Willcutt, that's cool!

    I was lucky enough to get to order one from Willcutt in April. I even had second choice for the Velas when they came. The one I bought was nice.

    So yesterday at lunch I just looked at Willcutt's New Arrivals as I usually do and there was my Unicorn Vela. I called Eric and bought it without a second thought. It is PERFECT for me. I then posted here that they had more....
