    You should buy a nice bottle of wine today. By the time your new guitar materializes, it may be a fine vintage wine! :laugh2::lol::applause:

    I agree. Great finish, some flame, a little fleck action, some nice grain, I think I see a touch of quilting in that even.

    I'm into it! :dude:

    He secretly works for Gibby and this thread is one big free advertisement powered by all of us and slipped under our noses. :fingersx:

    Haha, it's actually in my 21st present (though i'd be paying about half of it), and I want something i'll keep for life to always associate with my parents and remember them by. So I really don't want to be selling it if it can be avoided as I know it would upset them.
    I know it's been a crazily long search (and i'm 22 now!) but i'm a patient guy and I want to do it right as this is one of the only opportunities i'll get to own a guitar like this, and in a way it's bigger than just a guitar to me.

    Thanks Bugman, appreciate the support.

    Singlecut, i've broadened my search more recently so hopefully i'll have more success. I think if it went on any longer than 6 months it would just be ridiculous!

    I've said it before, but this is the way to go IMHO. Get it.
