    how much did it run you?

    Looks sweet! I've bought a few used guitars from Japan. It worked out that they have stuff you simply can't get here & cheap. The shipping balances it out a bit, but, you still end up w/ a good deal, IMO.

    Nice new Edwards. Rumour is that Schenker's V's after his 1st one, were Edwards, which is why he never got a Gibson endorsement.

    Look forward to a review, once you get settled in w/ it...

    They are said to be spectacular, better than the gibson product. Here in aus you can land one for a tiny fraction of the cost of a genuine LP custom, and they are readily available in left hand.

    Dogs, $595 & 75 shipping ..i held off for 3 months pulling the trigger,,i chatted with Reverb sales guy..they absolutely back up your transaction..he said the real deal sellers move a guitar a day through them..you just have to sort out which ones are not resellers..copying the real ad & being a middle man for some yen action..they go find the guitar if its not theirs..this came packed perfect ! 4 days from japan to PA..this & Burny are fantastic & that Goldtop Orville is over the top..

    I just set it up..lil more relief & new 10's///worked on the SD pickup heights..went from alright to fantastic..its a Rock guitar..that jb/59 set just gets it in a custom..it's not for the classic PAF type sound but when ya want plug strait in a marshall & let it rip. would say a tad to modern side..which is exactly what i was shooting for ! But nails Skynyrd easily backed off..but..it was Holy Diver type riffs with a lil more roundness..if a Dimarzio was in the bridge ..this would be a Vivian Campbell situation real quick !!

    1 more Gibson coming tomorrow & a Peavey Ultra..then its done for a bit..i made a very big decision for us over the weekend

    I reached out to the Brain Injury Foundation...i am trying to get a 45 min set at their national convention & a keynote speaking spot. J needs to see its OK..if you are brain damaged .that people wont make make fun of her if she needs the words on stage with her..she has no retention at all..we do song in studio & she doesnt even know the words after..

    We are hoping for the spot & put this band back in place, 3 years has been way too long..if i can get her focusing forward maybe she can heal & be confident threr is better days ahead !! Went to bandroom today..first time since we got creamed by the DUI driver & started hooking the PA up...i got to...we have to make music & get back out there raising money for non profit orgs & telling stories of hope.in this decaying world..

    Based on everything & everybody i know in the industry...the demand is there...a quick part time apprenticeship on hours no one want to work..is the mad money time...Locksmiths will hire an on call lockout specialist....there is too much work for anybody to handle..you are in a major market...do it up right..learn those 2 skills..house pick..car unlock..wham bam....you are in as much demand if not more than a good doctor...everybody needs in their car or house.like immediately...no sales..no nothing..be the best on the phone...accurate eta & get em in..they hug you..offer sex & drugs..they are so happy..lol...but oh so very true..quite a bit of it is from a burn session & oh crap man i locked my keys in the car....I unlocked the Band, Alabama, Tour Bus...nice guys...

    left the other day to do a call..i mostly dispatch these days since the accident..i didnt get home for 12 hours..it went off the rails..in my pocket//$960

    my techs did 13 other calls that day..do that math...

    Congratulations BFT, that baby looks dressed to slay/ kill/ go out on the town, or be the inspiration for some new material.
    Play it in good health my brother.
    Cheers Mitch
