    Sorry...I was busy looking for something else to wait for.

    Here’s my new “Ibanez”...

    I always tell the photographer to make it snappy. I can’t hold my breath that long.

    My theme on waiting is a bit different......Waiting to sell 6 or 8 before biting on another guitar. Well, aside from the two custom orders placed a year ago that are likely to drop in the next month or so.

    This thread was making me feel left out, so I just bought another baitcaster. Now I am officially playing the waiting game.

    I joined the waiting game in early June this year....Special Custom 22 Semi-Hollow. I'm guessing I won't see it until spring 2019.

    Hey, I'd take that any day. Tosca, 11top, and several other guys "handmedowns" are better than I can afford new. Be kind of like being Julie Bowens second husband. Do you really care that you're second? ;)

    Let's go! I have access to a farm pond where I caught 2 5+ lb'ers in the past 3 weeks. However, I must confess to being a spinning reel guy.

    I'm ready. Last 5 pound largemouth I caught was in Canada a couple years ago, so I'm due. And, I'll let you try the Lews and see if that changes your mind.

    I'm with you. Although, I'll bet it's a long lost B.C. Rich

    You'd be surprised how easy these are to cast. I was throwing a 1/4oz spinnerbait 150 feet with one Saturday night.

    wait wait wait...the lead time on a custom order is 16-18 months? I guess I don't feel so badly playing in the shallow end - waiting that long for my dream guitar would put me way out on the edge. :LOL:

    What’s this thread about again? I just had a cocktail and for the life of me I can’t remember.

    Too bad there aren’t any hookers in my studio right now.

    “Dude. That’d be kind of a waste of money, especially at your age, wouldn’t it?”

    “Not. For. Me.”
