    Yep, they say that sometimes the good also brings the bad. I've coveted this guitar for what seems like eternity, but now it resides comfortably next to the Pimp Daddy. Someone once said that the only way this guitar would ever leave his possession is by "prying his cold, dead fingers off of it". Well, let's just say that a 36 ounce maple bat is a great...um.....negotiating "tool" for acquiring a killing....oops...."terrific" new piece of gear. While some might lament the loss of a dear friend, the tone from this bad boy will definitely ease the pain.

    May I present a toneful pair of bookends, quite possibly the two coolest guitars that have ever been built.

    Hey what's that lump on my head..
    Wait...where's my guitar!!!



    Ha ha very funny John. LOL
    No I didn't part with it. Bwaahahahah

    John's doing me the favor of taking my baby down to Ron for a little fret touch up as I've played the hell out of it the last almost 2 years. My death grip takes a toll!

    Sorry to hit and run the thread guys, but it was begging to be done! Big Mike's guitar is safely down at the Thorn shop, getting a little well deserved TLC.
