    g.wizz thank you. Believe me I will. The truth is this is one guitar that every time I set it down I really can't help myself but to pick it back up again. It's very addictive.

    Here's what really gets me. The neck. So smooth so easy to play absolutely not a bad note anywhere. Like I said before the fretwork is flawless as good as any of the most expensive I have ever purchased. I love the simplicity of one volume control one tone control and one 3-way switch in a lot of ways it reminds me of my Telecaster.

    WOW. 68reissue, You got the whale blue and Trampas Green ones.

    I was having a hard time deciding between both of those and the sunburst.

    I have an affinity towards Sunburst guitars so that's what made me get the one I did. Even though the whale blue and trampas green are absolutely beautiful.

    Great choices absolutely. You should be proud of them they're wonderful guitars

    It’s a good drug on its own, sometimes I take a hit off a SE just to calm my cravings.

    I truly from the bottom of my heart understand the addiction and cravings of the disease GAS.

    I had to have an intervention.

    I just got so crazy with buying guitars I didn't have any more room for any of them. That's why I sold my collection from 27 down to 14. Most of which have been put away in Secure Storage. I only keep a couple on hand now

    At the end of the day I found the Best high there is , is when a group of musicians are playing together and you reach that special plane where everything becomes telepathic. Where nothing needs to be said. When all the musical Souls and mind's melt together and the music becomes almost like rapture

    Forget about whatever money you're being paid forget about however big the audience is if there is even one, it's really all about that special moment

    Congrats on your first! Love the top and finish on that one. Looks great! Also, nice choice for number 2! Careful, soon you'll be looking at all your other guitars trying to figure out why you have them.

    Nice one!

    But if you do go for the Core Custom 22 later, don't baby that sucker too much. They're made to play!

    You mean mine? Aw, shucks! Seriously, the Trampas will probably serve more as a showpiece, and the Whale Blue will be the one I play more often. I bought them both from Dave’s, and they came with incredibly nice setups.
