    Mine is hooked to the tractor 7 acres down, it's an International Harvester. Most all the numbers are wore off it! Ever see any thing like that.

    Best guitar I've ever owned. I've had some great guitars, but this one is simply the best. Well with one exception. I had a USA '81 BC Rich Bich 6. That was a magnificent guitar as well, but I hated the neck on it.

    I'm very much considering going to Guitar Center tomorrow morning to buy a used JEM 7V in Georgia to have it shipped to WPB.

    http://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/Ibanez/JEM7V-Steve-Vai-Signature-Electric-Guitar-112148380.gc

    I'm just concerned about the neck. If it's similar to mine then I really will do it. If it's very thin, it would kill me but I'd let it go. I'm hoping the gc in WPB has one for me to try.

    Love that Saraceno Yamaha. I've always wanted one of them.

    Very cool.

    I added another "shredder" to my stable today. Shame people must classify it as such. It sounds absolutely beautiful playing any genre.

    Here's a pic of the pair

    In that case, you need a road trip. You need to go to the factory, do the tour, try a bunch of guitars in the factory store, have your salesman help you pick out the actual pieces of wood and see the finish you'll be getting on the guitar IN Person.

    Then you need to go over to the Taylor factory, do that tour (it's a short drive),

    [​IMG]

    do a bit of lounging around San Diego, maybe sneak across the border into TJ.

    [​IMG]

    Then, as you head up to LA, drop by Buffalo Brothers,

    [​IMG]

    stop into the Suhr factory,

    [​IMG]

    do a bit of shopping at Wild West in Riverside

    [​IMG]

    and then call GMW and Trussart to see if they have anything you can look at on your way. Get up early enough to hit the Griddle Cafe near Fairfax (Director's Guild) for *serious* pancakes:

    [​IMG]

    waddle down to the Sunset Guitar Center, poke around their vintage room and Platinum Rooms, visit the bigass Sam Ash down the street and then make plans to hit McCabes, Trutone, Norm's Rare Guitars, visit Venice Beach to say hi to Harry Perry (this guy):

    [​IMG]

    then head out to Dismaland (the Tragic Kingdom, the Crappiest Place On Earth, the People Trap run by a Mouse) for a last bit of visual overload before you stand in the 3 hour TSA line at the airport before you get on a plane home. Now THAT's the full experience.

    We got your steenkeeng guitars...

    IMG_3221.JPG IMG_3267.JPG IMG_3268.JPG Here's my long lusted after and only recently acquired San Dimas stock. It's replacing a cheap Indo Kramer Pacer Classic bought waaaay before the '16 Charvels were out, as I'd just bought 3 Pauls in as many months and couldn't stretch to a San Dimas (plus, they lacked tone and coil splitting, deal breaker for me).

    I upgraded the Kramer with a Japanese Gotoh Floyd and (after much web research) a SD full shred set and voila, I had the sound in my head (De Martini bright and silky lead tones). I'm sure a lot of it was due to the better steel quality Floyd (the original pot metal version was unusable). However the Kramer was excessively heavy (9.6 lbs same as my trad) and I didn't like the neck profile all that much - I also really wanted to try out a compound radius so once the San Dimas 2016s made it to the used market (took a while in the U.K.) I snapped one up about a month ago and am very very happy and am reunited with my De Martini tone. I miss the gibby dual volume controls though.

    Pity I can't shred though.
