    Man... I just pulled it outta the case and played it unplugged for a few minutes. I really like the way it feels. This is indeed a sweet guitar. You don't really want this, do you Adrian?

    Grant, you are da man! Adrian, congrats and welcome to the '61 SG Special club.
    Now I expect a FULL review from you when you get it. No cheaping out on me with a 2 line review, and then blaming Goo or me for not sending you sammiches and crayons!
    Seriously, though, congratulations... And Grant, my bro, you are a legend!

    GRANT is a Legend !!!

    Now the real "LEgend" part is going to come in the ability to seal the box and send her East. lol.
    Make sure she has her shots and passport to get in the Republic of Redneckistan :)

    I will give a FULL (er fool??) YES FULL report Alex!

    Grant, you did well sir. Taking care of our Adrian was a good thing to do!:thumb:
    It makes my old heart kinda glad to see such a thing being done.

    And Adrian, you crazy mixed up kid! ( Ha I always wanted to say that by the way....:laugh2: ) You're gonna love that model. And you're not gonna want to go flipping this model I can assure you.

    I got one a couple years ago and it is a case queen about 90% of the time, but when it does come out to play, EVERYTHING stands still and stares.:wow:
    Last time Bill was over was the first time in months I brought it out and he lost his mind when I fired it up and played some BAD-AZZ Texas Blues! He said something about not needing Viagra when he heard it.:naughty:

    Me and Misty, our Belgian Brother, both have the cherry model. Now this one was a replacement for the original '64 I bought new back in the day and was forced to sell a few years ago to keep a roof over my head..:(
    But it's as close to the old one that it makes me smile every time I see it.


    [​IMG]
    Cheezy phone photo, but you get the idea anyway.

    Again, I'm tickled to death (well almost 'to death', as I'd like to stick around to hear of your adventures with this model) to see this great collaboration transpire here among our "clan" on ESG. :thumb:

    And trust me, you're gonna love the monster tone those Epi P90's spit out. Something about P-90's and a thin slab of mahogany just scream "Tone from Valhalla!" [​IMG]

    I gotta tell y'all, had I known how sweet this evil black beast is, I would not have posted it, I would have left work early to go pick it up and let it follow me home. Adrian better not flip it... EVER. If you ever feel the urge to get rid of it, I call dibs! I was up at 5:30 am this morning getting ready for work, it's now 9:15pm and I just got home. Too tired to plug her in and do a sound off with Burla, but I do have this weekend to try her out. Then find her a box for her voyage to Adrian. BTW she is a girl, a bitchen girl. If it were up to me to name her, I'd call her my black bitch, but then I wanted to call my dog that too. Then Adrian could have the white witch and the black bitch.

    Grant, you are now experiencing the hard part of "flipping" the letting go :) TRUST ME I know---my "personal" collection of "keepers" keeps GROWING
    Tell ya what I promise to never flip Her, I have been calling her Voodoo Queen but Black Bitch certainly has a ring lol And if I ever do need to "make room" or get cash for a liver transplant, you have got "dibs" Sir...then I think JohnnyGoo and ALex are running up on your 6 ;)

    That's a great guitar, but the even better value is that it has been given to you by a friend. Enjoy it for a lifetime.

    Adrian, your notoriety of being one of the most oft seen lunatics at this site has become legendary!:) Now if you were to change and become a conservative soft spoken individual minus the crayons, why we'd all panic!:ohno:
    Keep on going wild. Those of us who know you understand that beneath the crazy remarks and actions lies a heart of gold. ;)
    Now of course that gold was applied with Krylon spray paint and decorated with blue crayons! But that's OK too!:rofl:
    Don't go changin' we like ya just the way you are!:thumb:
