Ha! Yeah I'm totally in the guitar babying stage. I'm so protective of it. It sounds incredible through my crappy old combo especially cleans. I still haven't brought it to my practice space to crank it through my boogie but I can't wait. I plays so nice. Bends and pick squeals are super easy on it too.
You know my #1 custom was given to me from Kim over at Historic Makeovers. He told me it was a fantastic guitar! (This is coming from a man who has vintage LPs). It is a little beat up and very amber nitro. But sounds unreal!!
congrats on a killer monster man!!! Play in good health and rock on!
