    Picked up a new 2017 Tradish in Antique Burst today for about $400 less than a 2018 Studio! I love it when these “can’t pass it up” blowout deals come along. Usually, I’m the guy that misses out on these blowouts. Grabbed a few photos before they pulled it from the site. Fairly light for non-weight relieved LP at 8 lbs 3 oz. NGD thread pending.

    Ahhh... it’s great to be back. I missed you guys. Cheers!

    I know that there is a lot of hate for the Antique Burst... I was one of the original haters. But, my local shop had one a few months back and I thought it looked absolutely superb in person. When I saw this one pop up for the ridiculous price, I had to have it. UPS says it will be here around 530 today. Kinda stoked.

    Congrats! HNGD!

    I must admit I was quite surprised when I opened the thread and saw the pic. Didn't expect you to buy one of these :D.

    If I could find an Antique burst Trad that looked like that and was on offer, I'd be all over it. Congrats!

    Can't wait to see the in-hand pics.

    No point in starting a NGD thread... Might as well just follow up here.

    This guitar kicks ass!!! It's absolutely perfect on the fit and finish. Ridiculously light. So light that I'm shocked it's non-weight relieved. Undoubtedly the hardest to photograph the true color. I'm telling you, it's stunning in person. It's a creamy gold... Not really yellow. I love it.

    Nylon nut, Burstbuckers, ABR, point to point wired controls with orange drops, light weight solid hog body, non pickguard mounted, great top, perfect fit and finish, plays like a dream. Vintage brown case chocked with killer case candy. I could go on. No doubt, this is a top 2 out of countless LPs I've owned. And to think that I payed next to nothing for this beauty. Couldn't be happier!

    And the smell... OMG. They should bottle this stuff!

    Cheers!
