    I just got my Johan Bluesmaster. Thank you so much Justin.:rotflmao

    I've just come up from playing it for the past hour.
    There is no reason to own any other traditional humbucking guitar.....period.
    The tone, the tone, the tone, oh the humanity !!!!!!
    Add to that the esthetic and quality of build that Johan brings to the table here. When I opened the case, the immediate thing that came to mind was the old saying,"pictures don't do this justice." BEAUTIFUL !!!! Then the feel of it in my hands and hanging on me...wow!!!! But it is in the tone that the true beauty of this guitar can be appreciated.
    I'll post a more thorough review after my gig on Sat.
    cheers
    Pete

    That's great news. So happy you like it and that it survived the journey. I absolutely loved it and was sorry to see it go. The more I played it the more I liked it. Enjoy!

    Congrats on the new addition. The pics I've seen and the reviews I've read really have me jonesing for one. Nice to hear that they are even more beautiful in person. Post some pics for the unlucky like me who can't afford one of their own. Enjoy!

    Lucky! (in my Neopolean Dynamite voice)

    Yeah, I regret not jumping on one of the 2 that came up.

    Next one up for sale is mine! Dibs first! :p

    By the way, Pete, do you still own a T-R Custom Reverb Sig?

    I would be interested in knowing how the JG plays with that amplifier, seeing as how (when my JG arrives) I'll be firing it up through a T-R CRS myself...

    No I don't. I sold it recently to buy a Dum*** I haven't even played the Johan through that yet. Just a Kingsley Deluxe 30T and a Komet 60. I'll be ringing it out on Saturday night with a D13 RSA23. But I have to say, I'm sure the TR Sig will be a killer with the Johan.

    Just a P.S. here.......I can't get it out of my hands. I just want to play....all the time.

    Pete
