Bollocks! I replied to your message, but on my own page, so of course you wouldn't see it - I make that mistake sometimes - anyway, sorry for the delay, here's what I wrote:
Hey, being busy with work and family is great! You're a lucky man. Did miss you around here, though. And at the little guitar show this last weekend! Was hoping to meet with you and a few others - but I'll bet you'll be there with LMG in November!
Interesting about the bridge. I love any wraparound bridge - PRS, Gibson, both great sounding parts I think - my dream guitar'd be a '54 Gibson LP goldtop (though if offered one in trade for my R9, I'd have to play the '54 first!) - but mine has a trem. What's up? Have you invented a cool new take on the wraparound?
If you have any time tonight or tomorrow for some listening, good sir, might I invite you into the Cellar? No pressure; any comments you might have'd be great, and none is ok, too. (my "formula" invitation - I'm calling on a bunch of my pals)
... and, hey: how's that thumb doing? You healing up well?
Oh I know about the hard work!!! With a growing family and being a business owner. I will once we get some pics. I'm trying not to be too pushy about the whole lmg thing. I've been booted off a tele forum in like 2 seconds!!! I will once I get my Anodized Red Hard edge back from Paul Iverson. He's doing the nut for me! Then I'm gonna sand the neck and tongue oil it!!! Will be really slick. I put a Dimarzio Super Distortion in the Bridge and a SD Jazz in the neck. Should really work for some Maidenesque Harmonies!!!
I'm into that. It's tough to find time - everyone works really hard and all the time just to be here - I sure do. But - there's been talk about getting the MLP local yokels together for a beer. The Vancouver music scene is going to the dogs, and making some decent connections through this place might be a way to get some support happening.
I'm a terrible photographer. Really hard to catch the character of a cherry sunburst - the red always looks blocky and stupid, when it really gradually shades outward into this deep beautiful thing - but I'm working on photos of my three guitars. The PRS is so freakin' beautiful - really, really subtle.
I'd love to see your guitars! Who wouldn't? Why don't you start a thread on your guitars? Everyone (with any taste) will totally flip. I'll try to get my photos out there, too.
