    I haven't posted a "new guitar day" for a long, long time. But I picked up a 408 Brazilian last week and I'm so happy with it that I felt compelled to post it. I love everything about this guitar. The Brazilian neck is super smooth and the Patter neck carve feels really nice. This one just sounds and feels fantastic and I love the 408 pickups and switching configuration. I haven't been this excited about getting a guitar since I got my Singlecut Private Stock. I've been going chugga-chugga on this thing for a week! :evil: The top's really nice, too. Check it out!

    It's Orange Tiger. I took the picture with my iPhone. Here's the same picture but the non-HDR version. The Orange Tiger stain looks really good with a dark Brazilian neck and hybrid hardware.

    I like it!

    Now you almost have to get a water blue quilt, a sand fade and something for wind to have the 4 elements: Earth, Wind, Fire and Water.

    I would have loved one of these with the Braz neck.... But for that pesky writing on the headstock!!!

    That is a great top too!

    Gorgeous. Love the look of the mixed screws and slugs.

    Just out of curiosity...which sound do you prefer: this one or one of the MEs?

    That is stunning...I have to assume she sounds the part as well, I have not been able to put mine down for very long since I got her.

    Congrats!
