    Ive wanted one forever but never bit the bullet. Found one with a few small flaws for $800 shipped w fender case from GC. Suprised to find Dimarzio Area 61, 61 and 67s in it! Love how it plays and sounds! On to pics

    Noooo…must avert my eyes…I was doing so well at convincing myself I didn’t need one of these….

    but my struggles are mine and mine alone, so for now I should just congratulate you on the acquisition.

    Which I do not need to replicate. (goes to sit in the corner)

    I am immune to gas right now. Made myself significantly broke for the next few months by buying back the ole’ 79 back from my son. He is going to another country for work next year and he won’t be able to take it with him.

    He was saying just keep it and don’t worry about it, but I just didn’t feel right about that. Anyway, I know what I’m getting, because I’m the one that has done all the work on it the last 4 years:thumb:

    I love the grain and the Maple neck & finger board. That's a great looking axe. Congratulations.

    Stunner. And I’m a big fan of Dimarzio Area pickups!

    Those are great guitars stock, but the case and those Dimarzio Area pickups make it a stellar acquisition.

    Enjoy!
