She's home! More photos on the Official thread, but here's one....
Very groovy! Congrats!!
Nice grain and weathering
ShaWing! These last two Vela are so amazing. In your honor I'm only taking mine to the gig tomorrow night...no backup.
Wow Guitarsan, that's a beautiful example, enjoy !! I sure hope my CE turns out like that !!
It's looking like they saved the best for last. I need to hook up a visit to one of these Velas.
Well, depending on where in PA you're at on a given day...
Thanks! I almost feel guilty, since I had mostly been admiring these from afar and not even thinking about buying one. Then one night I happened to jump on Willcutt's website after midnight (I thought nothing happened good after midnight?) and there before my computer-screen lit face what did appear but three (3!) just-listed RL Velas. Knowing how scarce they were, I thought... you gotta be kidding, I can take my pick? The rest is history. Don't worry, I've played my guilt away. May all who are patiently waiting get a great one!
Oh, and this wasn't really an impulse buy. I had been thinking I'd like a dedicated guitar for alternate tunings and slide, set up for slide. Add to that I get a "new" electric guitar sound in a semi-hollow to compliment my solid body PS McCarty SC594 and Eric Johnson Strat. And last, I can channel my best Gary Clark Jr. now! Bright Lights, anyone?
I'm rarely in PA for a day anymore, but I probably pass within an hour or so of you a couple times a year.
First "the morning after" pics...
While the top / figuring may not be as stunning as some others, I am certainly NOT disappointed
I'm very pleased with "Mi Casa" all the way around. The cracks and the 'beauty mark' next to the bridge are full of unique character.
Not much I can add as a description that hasn't already been said, other than she is amazingly loud unplugged, and extremely bright plugged in. I suspect the tone will mellow with age and play time. She was just 'born' 2 1/2 weeks ago after all...
Also have some special plans for her soon too...
Looks great! Dig the cracks, and love the name! Can't wait to see what you've got planned for it!
Likewise! Although, I had been waiting since March!
When I get kicked out if my house for obsessive buying, I'm coming to live with EACH ONE OF YOU, two weeks at a time.
I'll bring my Reclaimed Wood Vela with me ...since I just bought one from a fellow forum memeber.
Proof of said acquisition coming next week, after our honeymoon night together.
Let me know when you're coming through the Chicago area.
You're one if the worst enablers here! You're stuck with me for a month!
I AM housetrained...but you should lay down some newspapers anyway...just in case.
Who? Me? What? I can't hear you.....
On the other hand, I am well stocked with cigars, scotch and bourbon.
Mine has arrived as well.
My first S2 to own, and I am quite impressed with its playability and tone comparing to my core PRS. Took a quickie on its arrival, forgot to pull out the stryfoam
And here she is, in all her glory!!!!!
Nice one, @drawshot ! Yet another unique and awesome looking top.
