    So this got dropped off at my office by UPS while I was at home. Our receptionist sent me photos:

    I later showed these two photos to Brian, and he responded with OMG, and how nice of them to tape the boxes up. LOL

    Miraculously, there was no damage done to the contents. This beauty was unscathed:

    Tosca started a thread about the best guitar under $1,000, and this was the model he listed. I have to admit it is a lot of guitar for the money.

    I was surprised when Brian told me he still has a few of these available with some really nice tops. If you’re interested, contact Brian’s Guitars as this is a limited edition Zach Myers exclusive to his shop.

    Sweet looking guitar. The box, not so much. Glad there was no damage!

    Mine came today, will do pix later.

    Totally different: goes from a deep wine red to completely gray, with none of that orange vibe yours has.

    Congrats.
    I'm actually getting one of those too, as soon as he's done with the pre-ordered ones.

    Congrats on the guitar and the safe arrival. My heart sank when I saw the photos even though the title eluded to a safe, or at least somewhat safe, journey.

    Congrats Steve. These all look amazing and yours may be the best I’ve seen. The ZM gets my vote for best SE ever...and this run is just special.

    Could’ve been worse, could’ve been a blue one in the box.

    I don’t think that’s been updated. They have some.
