    Well Adrian, I know you probably haven't got The Black Bitch yet, so in your honor, I'm gonna play my '61 while drinking Guinness today!
    Pity I don't have a video camera... Actually it's probably just as well that I don't! :naughty:

    Oh now THAT is cruel and unusual punishment that is. ANd FYI Her Proper name is Black Voodoo Bitch, in honor of the spell she has cast on Wavmixer and my being here in the Bayou quarter of Redneckistan.

    Cheers Alex and enjoy----paybacks will be ...well, a BITCH lol
    Tell the Blonde Bimbo "HI" from me ;)

    Yea, I grew up with the CCR version, but Screamin Jay Hawkins seemed to fit the Voodoo motif :ohno:

    Well I finally plugged the black voodoo bitch in to my amp and did a comparison between her and Burla. First thing I noticed is that Burla feels like a LP next to the evil black one. She is one lean mean playing machine. Second thing I noticed was the P-90s sound much brighter than my humbuckers. With the tone set at 5 on the black one and my tone set to 10, the black one is still all about the treble. I checked the intonation and it's off a bit, but I believe that it can be dialed in. I also found it harder to get the notes right while bending them, guess I'm just use to the feel of my twang fiddles.

    I've been afraid to play it for fear that I might fall in love with it and not wanna let her go. Fact of the matter is, I didn't fall in love, just lust. She is pretty, she does sound sweet, and she did come at a great price... but she's just not my Burla. I gotta go to work tomorrow, but I do have Christmas vacation for a few days and then go back to work on the 5th of next year. I'll be spending Christmas with the family and then pack her up on the 26th.

    As long as she was here visiting for the holidays, I couldn't resist taking a family portrait. Her cousins surrounded her with a big group hug and she will be missed, but we know that she is going to a good home.

    Dancing is over. I zipped her up in the gig bag along with the original paperwork that came with her. Next step is to pack her up in a box and ship her home to you.
