    I ordered another guitar from GMW Guitar Works... :thumb:

    I decided that for my birthday, I would treat myself to this guitar. I had been looking at it on the GMW site for some time, but didn't order because I wanted it a bit different. Then, I see that Lee is now offering Stainless Steel frets, so I called him and asked if he could redo the guitar w/ stainless steel and he said yes. Woo hoo-- in relatively short order I'll have the new addition.

    Just a sample of how they can react w/ one of my amps. That is actually my amp in the video, so for me-- that is a helpful clip. Mark Day-- the guy playing has several demos on youtube using different amps w/ that guitar. To get an idea of various sounds, check out some of his videos. The production quality is always decent.

    Thanks Brah... I am taking tomorrow off from the shop, and cruising. Ya, I was talking to Lee this morning, and he was saying that he spent a small fortune trying to get the color captured right in the pics, but it just didn't. I am sure in person this thing is going to be SICK!

    That IS the actual guitar, I am just having him redo the frets w/ stainless steel 6100's.

    I posted this yesterday, I guess it got deleted when they were doing their web maintenance?

    Gorgeous looking guitar, congratulations and happy b-day.

    I was checking out the GMW website and I didn't see the LP model that you have? Do you know if they still make it?
