    I don't doubt that at all. I can hardly put it down every time I see one at the store and find myself looking at them online all the time. Such a cool guitar.

    That’s the closest I’ve come to trying and/or buying a Santana.

    Easiest method I've found to change strings with a floyd is one by one and stretch the heck out of them. It's not much more difficult than any other guitar when I do this.

    No back to the beauties in black!

    Oh absolutely, one at a time is paramount! But did I mention how fragtastic the DW is?! And it has nothing to do with Dusty and I having the same initials.

    Forum task for the night: What is Dusty Waring's middle initial? If it's an 'E', I'm really going to be ecstatic!

    Maybe I'm under the influence of too much Scotch? @Alnus Rubra to the golden hued courtesy phone. Ultimately, he's the most qualified to answer that question!

    Stunning guitars everyone! It’s amazing how much variation there is between the same finish on individual guitars.

    Hmm... note to self: Maybe this is why people don't want to buy used guitars from me?

    Ohhh, he doesn't like being called "Bob", I guess :D

    Sound advice, my friend! ;) Finally getting to like peated single malt! Have had Ardbeg 10 and Laphroaig 10 in the past month - and a Talisker, but I don't like it as much.

    Oh yes! When I lived in MD I could find the 18, everywhere, but haven't located any in Georgia :(. Total Wine has 10 or 12 (don't remember), so I guess I'll grab that next time. I'm pretty sure I'm still incapable of pronouncing it, though :confused:
