    The Floyd and the pickups (it has 2 HFS pickups) are the big differences. Also has a V-neck, which makes it a deal breaker for me. It looks like you could drop in a regular Vela pick guard and pickups, so you'd get the Floyd if you wanted it, so it'd come down to whether you wanted the neck shape.

    I did not realize Vela is a Sail or a Constellation.

    Also didn't know Vela is S2 line only, or Private stock.

    Additionally, I did know FedEx are liars! Early delivery yesterday instead of Wed, but site says Tues. No guitar yesterday, site has no date of delivery now!

    Vela thread, not FedEx ***** thread!

    Still waiting. FedEx is still in Pending Delivery with no ETA since Monday night in RED.

    I want my MTV. Wait...Dang Vela.

    I want my Dang Vela! :)

    Also, I was perusing the new Vela's again, and they all seem to have jumped up in price since I purchased mine last week. I will feel lucky if mine arrives.

    Yes it will happen. I called the store yesterday to check, and while we were on the phone the FedEx site updated to today delivery. It'll be a nice holiday if it arrives.

    "Why are you working from home this week?"

    "Erm, the indoor mask mandate at the office makes it too difficult..." right??

    I know guitar with three P90's are often likened to a "Strat on steroids", but having such a beast, that just isn't true. P90's don't sound ANYTHING like a "Strat", even if they're configured like that.

    But the D-Type pups are really sonically right in between a "Strat" and a Dearmond. They do have some of that sound. So this Vela actually DOES sound like a "Strat on steroids".

    My 3-P90 guitars sound like a 3-P90’S guitar. With a maple neck and board, they quack and cut beautifully.

    Can’t agree more! Clean: just stunning and articulate. Dirty: jockey the volume knob to coax wonderful stuff out of the guitar.

    These Vela threads are probably responsible for the uptick in resale value. :cool:
