Happy for ya, Bill, srsly.
I know what it is about mine, for me. But sometimes, I get "it" elsewhere. Which proves to me it's not the pots, caps, pickups, finish, board, or anything I can nail down. It's the whole package. And also explains why I'm up to nine quite-different guitars, none of which I can even consider letting go!
As coincidence would have it, today's an R8 day. So I'm on the same wavelength. I went and put new strings on her this afternoon, and holy jumping toaster cakes! I can do no wrong.
