    +1 Classic wood grain top with an 80's-ish stain color. Very cool.

    She's here! The top looks amazing depending on where you angle her. I don't care about the imperfections.My Stripper is a dirty bird!! She feels great! Can't wait to plug her in tonight!
    Must go wipe off the drool on my Stripper!

    Nice guitar and happy NGD! I was just looking at these on the Wildwood site. They look like great guitars, wish I had the cash for one right now.

    DAMN!!!! I just came up for air. This thing is KILLIN'!! Awesome tones. The neck fits me like a glove. And she's sexy as hell. I'm taking 5 minutes & goin' back in. I just opened her up took a look inside. The caps in her are nice, but I have to try out my PIO caps just to see. I may even swap out the bridge pup tonight with the DGT. I think the neck 57/08 will stay...at least for a while. I may not even move the controls. The more I play it, the more it makes sense to me. I's easier to do volume swells on the bridge pup as is. As it sits right now, it is one of the most perfect guitars I've played. I know my DGT's are in the other room crying right now. :eek: ...Goldie may go up for sale soon...but don't tell her... But Riza plays beautifully. I get very nice Grissom-Approved blended 'bucker tones. Very fat & clear. I'm not missing the coil tap right now.
    Anyway, I've spent too much time gabbing...must play....my stripper is calling me....I must not disappoint her!
    More to report later...

    Well, I'm spent. Riza was wearin' me out & then my Stripper asked if I had any friends . So I came upstairs and grabbed the Burst DGT and we had a helluva threesome!!
    Riza is simply amazing, from clean & crisp to big and ballsy. She has the low end of a great Les Paul but with a more present midrange. I mentioned the neck before & I am still LOVIN' it! I'm diggin' the Pattern neck.
    I made a few changes to Riza before we got busy. I popped the DGT in her bridge. I also added a pair of PIO caps and a few Volume kits. I tried a few volume kit caps and the cheapest ones sounded the best. The tones I'm getting with both pups on is very, very nice. Similar to the DGT but with a lower low-end.
    Both of these gtrs are amazing. I can't believe I own them. Tone City Baby! And I've got that NAMM gtr coming too! If it sounds this good I think I'll never stop playing. No sleep, No work. ALL PLAY!!
    Anyway, if anyone is on the fence about getting a Stripper. Jump off that fence, get in your car, and run that damn fence over. These are great gtrs!

    I love the color and would rock that thing until my kids hung it on a wall to remember me.

    I have never owned a PRS but that one would suit me just fine I believe.

    Wow!

    It's amazing how brilliant and reflective that Green is- if you described it to me , I'd be wondering- but it's really nice.

    Looks like some nice big fretwire on there also.

    Congrats and give us a Tone Report- this may be the first guitar in the world where the color DOES affect the tones.

    Rough video demo. Riza is stock except for the TRC. The amp was LOUD!! Kinda compressed the video a bit. I'll do a better one when I do the shootout next week. 3 DGT's vs Riza and maybe a few others.

    The 58 Stripped was a limited edition. Eriza Verde was a standard color option. I ordered mine right after the PRS Experience last year. It feels like the best Les Paul I've ever played. Same scale length , fat neck, stays in tune very well....whole lotta love!
