    Thank you, I love the color as much as I had hoped. I did a super bonehead this though and don't really want to admit it :facepalm:

    The only female to see me play in 6 months is my wife and all she says is, " turn that crap down, I'm trying to watch real housewives here" :rolleyes:

    Dayum - looking nice!! I think I’d have gone small white pick guard and black soapbars (given it was being refinished anyway) but, heck, that’s just an opinion on the internet so who gives a scooby?!! Cool axe, man!!!
