    Wow - if that is from that Dave's run, I suspect you got an awesome deal!

    GC's used section is weird - some stuff is priced OK, most of it is a little overpriced (typical), and some of it is a real steal because they just don't know what they have. That's how I picked up my 30W HXDA so cheaply.

    I need to troll it more regularly, but I have sworn off actually buying anything until Experience in a few weeks! (Last week's CE was the last thing before Experience, I promise!)

    When you called you should have asked the GC worker bee to grab that guit- fiddle and describe what's on the back of the headsock.

    Or you could just let the anticipation build as you wait for what will seem like years until it arrives.

    Nice Guitar!

    Looks like a Dave’s limited edition 2009, there’s a vintage yellow one but 24 fret on Reverb right now for a hefty price.

    Looking forward to when you receive it please post some photos, got to love GC worst photos ever!

    I hope the joy you'll get opening the case will make up for the delay!

    I hate it when they do that. Happens far too often to be just a "bad luck thing" - I think UPS (and USPS and FedEx) all operate on a "get Amazon pkgs there first, everyone else suffers" method. (Apparently Amazon demands super-high % on-time, else you don't get the full value of the contract - i.e you lose money.)

    The one nice thing about living near a mall. I'm on the same route for UPS and FedEx. It may be late in the day, but I always get it.

    Yeah, I don’t get it. Last two pictures show the regular tailpiece for the Tune-o-matic bridge. Description says it includes one piece wraparound bridge. Why I don’t know. Makes it look odd.

    Well she arrived. Came with a beat up old PRS case with no paperwork or anything in it but a trem arm. Missing the switch tip. Looks like it is one of the Dave's Guitars limited runs with 59/09's. Fat neck. I called GC to see if they had the case, but no PRS cases in the building.

    Signature on the headstock is fading. I assume it is signed over the finish and that I need to be careful of it. At any rate, very pleased with how this turned out. Great top and tone.
