    Well...after 11 days of torture and FedEx not knowing where my guitar was at, two scheduled deliveries that never happened I finally have my R8 Lemonburst in hand!

    ...and it is FANTASTIC!

    I see no real need to describe what a perfect guitar this is because most already know! Mine is flawless! Perfect fit and finish. Set up, tuned, intonated, all perfect...plays and sounds unbelievable!

    So here she is...Pandora

    "Every time Pandora come my way
    I get high, can't explain the sensation...

    Sweet Pandora
    God Like Aura"

    Very, very nice, Sp8ctre.

    I'm relieved for you that it arrived safe and sound.

    Hallelujah ! Beauty !

    But I can't appreciate it, with that sticker getting in the frame all the time.
    I think the selector back cover is a nice touch though.

    I couldn't be more pleased with this guitar! I've been waiting years to land one of these and it is exceptional!

    This one along with my SG Standard will be with me until the end...

    Well I'm driving a F250 ford with a custom heavy duty trailer with two monster
    propane tanks in back and driving around to all the drains and manhole covers heating up asphalt that inspector
    wanted leveled off or down .I'm heating with torch and guys reshape with shovels and asphalt rake me no likey shovels
    are rakes I'm a operator or driver and crew leader . although today I did it all drive crew truck loaded asphalt
    shoveled raked tacked building wheelchair ramps with asphalt . Ever now and then I have to actually lead by example as
    I lead LOL lets the young Punks know I might be old but they will still struggle to keep up with me.And I say nice things
    all day like you drink soda on your own time hurry up we gotta finish this job TODAY hey you can pass out when you get home
    your on my time and you don't die or pass out on my time cmon boy lets go they get mad as all Hell and that's the point
    push them because it really does have to be done. I'm called Mr maggot juice Maggot juice is gator aid so if they are drinking it I will say
    cmon son lets go you don't need no more maggot juice that's how I got the name they are maggots like it or not as temps they wear blue hard hards and are maggots if they are hired and get a normal white hard hat they evolve into some other animal LOL .You se there are only two life forms Below a Road hand that's a Logger and then lastly a inmate. Ruff necks work in oil field Road neck work on roads
    It can be a very stress full and intense environment add traffic to this equation and it multiplys the intensity by 10 . One of my blue hats Maggots was hit by a car just 4 wks ago on the same job 4 days in hospital 3 wks at home and he back and out on the same job
    and same road he was nailed on now he knows we really do play a very serious game and we cant always control our environment
    people are crazy and drive like it too. Tuff kid he will get a job and evolve I hope .
