Congrats you won't be disappointed! I haven't been able to put down my RLCE24 yet. Watch out for those nail holes though, I heard that's where all the mojo leaks out :laugh2:

Looks great. Who did you order yours from?

i found it on reverb, but it was a shop in Alabama, "guitars and more" i believe. a couple have popped up overnight the past few nights. today i only see the one used one.

Eric down there is the man! He was the only person in the shop yesterday and dropped my guitar off to the post office on his lunch break. I don't think I could ask for better service. Texted me pics of the guitar all boxed up, receipt and insurance/tracking info. I need to find them on google and give them props. Excellent store. :thumb:

LOL! Looking forward to your first impressions and pics. :thumb:

I won't be getting one of these made with reclaimed wood, but the Vela S2 is on my short list. I may have to sell a couple of my case queens to help me afford one :naughty:

:Ohno:

so i called my local post office today and got the, "well it looks like it's one step away from us. it got into hodgkins a couple days ago."

Starla bridge pup and single coil neck pup are a great match. so vintagey in vibe and feel but modern playability. the thin satin lacquer feels great. do recommend!

That's a fine looking guitar. I'm glad you finally received it unscathed. HNGD! :thumb:

i was sweating this one, the box was a little crunched near the headstock so i ended up opening the box inside the post office. was so relieved at the neck being fine after all the shipping stories we've seen over the years.

it plays very nice and weighs in at 6.23 lbs. so comfy.

I understand. I usually order guitars from GC so I can have them sent to their local store. That way I can open the box in front of the staff and plug into an amp to test everything. ;) Love that weight too (one of the big advantages of semi-hollows).

this has got to be one of the most gorgeous guitars I've seen in a while... I love the idea of the reclaimed wood too.. GAS Pains
