    Some of you know my story at the Experience: I asked Paul to convince my wife for buying me a 594. After a hard negotiation, he made me buy a diamond for her in exchange.
    fastforward to two weekends ago, paul did a mini-tour in Spain presenting the new SE 2017 range and they made a raffle after the clinic, a new SE for the winner... and the winner was ME!
    I went on the stage, he made some jokes and signed the guitar for me

    And then the conversation was like the following:
    - Excuse me Mr. Smith, do you remember me? Does my face ring a bell?
    - I think so, but I can´t remember
    - Try my wife´s face, she´s right there. The three of us made a deal at the experience, you made me buy...
    - WAIT, THE DIAMOND????
    - Yeah!

    And he explained the story to the audience, ending with: "So be it, you buy a diamond for your wife and you get a guitar for free" :p:D

    It was a fun situation. Two times I spoke to him, both ending with laughs :D:D:D

    Not much about the guitar, a new 2017 SE Custom 24. But here I post some pics:

    New logo, and replaced TRC with the one from the Experience, because this guitar is linked to that event somehow.

    The ticket with the number that made me winner goes with the guitar, wherever, forever

    And a family photo (the 594 is still waiting somewhere :oops:)
