    i have a pre-factory hand made prs ooh laa laa look at me !
    i also have a fancy pants prestige japanese made ibanez.

    but my mim classic series 60's tele gets almost all the play time and is my least modded guitar so i guess they were right from the start and i was wrong until now.

    And the maddening thing is that it will do in pretty much any musical situation I could be involved in. That's why I have two. In case I am involved in two musical situations, simultaneously.

    And the forearm. That’s why I’ve contoured both of mine. It’s a completely different experience. My pink one is my No.1 guitar.
