    So this finally showed up at my house today.

    I'll open it after dinner, it was cold from being on the big brown box all day.

    More picks to follow.

    Here it is. Once it is stable, I will be putting on new strings, black pickup rings and Ernie Ball locking strap buttons. I'm considering a black Gotoh wraparound bridge and black Gotoh locking tuners, but those will wait until I have some more OT on the paycheck.

    Not much mojo nor figuring at all. Finish is decidedly uneven. Fail.
