    The PRS has grown on me since I first saw it.

    2012 Wildwood '54 Stratocaster. The Custom Shop Fat 50's p/u's are amazing to me.

    I couldn't stand the burgundy skin I put on Shorty, so I re-did it in copper.

    ^ Oooooh, very noyce. :yesway: I had that guitar in the see-through white color. I sold it 'cause I kept pulling the E strings off the edge of the fingerboard. It barely weighed 7 lbs with the bar in.

    2020 Pro II Strat, a rather fanciful delight. This guitar goes well with chocolate chip ice cream.

    I like it! :applause:

    Sounds to me like a new nut slotted properly would have solved the high e issue on the other guitar.

    2013 R9.
    This guitar is so perfectly balanced that when I sit on a stool and play it, if I take off one of the knobs and let go, the neck flips down, hits the chair leg and smashes to the floor. Or if I take a tuner off and let go, the neck swings up and hits me in the head before the guitar falls face-down on the floor. This has happened so many times that there's lines in the top, as you can see in fig. 1 below.

    fig 1.

    Update: Also, it took me a long time to come up with a name, but I eventually nicknamed it "2013 Gibson Custom Shop Historic 1959 VOS Bourbon Burst with Custombuckers, Aniline Dye & Truss Rod Condom" for short.

    It would have required a narrower version of the bridge. I forget the name of the manufacturer, but it's a common replacement bridge for that, apparently it's an issue for some people.

    I went on a fuzz binge the other day.
    Got the TC used with some gear cred for $20 net.
    Traded in some stuff I wasn't using and got the JHS, new on sale, trade in discount & trade cred for $6 net.
