    This has been a long time coming and my patience has been rewarded. Firstly, a shout out to Tom McC and Jesse W of Ish Guitars, NY. Those guys have been great to deal with for the second time this year - really appreciate how well they looked after me all the way down here in Australia. They even helped me out by swapping out the pick up rings for me to black before they shipped it to me. And as the cream ones were in the case, I can go back the other way if I feel like it! I have also changed out the cream tuner buttons to ebony ones.

    As for the guitar itself, it is as good as I had hoped - the tones from the TCI-pick ups and the combinations are just awesome and very usable. The charcoal is really difficult to capture, as is the curl in the neck but here's my attempt.

    My first reaction was “Ooo ya bas**rd”. That is just opulence and gorgeousness incarnate. How long before you stopped licking it? :p

    Sorry, no badge, certificate or honorary handshake. However, if you make it to the next Experience, whenever that can happen again, I WILL buy you an adult beverage!
