    I saw two of them this afternoon- they're big.

    I really want to get pics of them before the bums start ****ing with them.

    Fuggin awesome. As a native Wisconsinite (Beaver Dam), it makes me proud.

    When does the cheesehead version come out? I'll put it in my yard.

    They're probably Chinese fakes - the contours and headstocks are all wrong!

    :D

    The nut is cut very sloppily, too. You can tell from the pictures.

    I wonder if they have the 2 piece RW board or the burnt maple board.

    Or richlite, even. Maybe even laminated baked richlite.
