From Eddie at Indoor Storm and with some help from Jack on choosing the options. I.S. had ordered the guitar last summer for stock so I won't have to wait as long as if I ordered from scratch. I was still able to choose the pickups, switching, controls, fretwire, neck carve, and finish. The body was already routed for a trem which is what I would have spec'd anyway. I'm pretty hyped about getting this based on what I've read here and elsewhere on the net (special nods to Jason Barker for his great article - I've also purchased a Carr Mercury and Keeley Compressor with Jason's "help" and both have been keepers) So I lucked upon the mint VSC McNaught recently, will have the Briggs in the summer of 2006, and the Thorn in the Spring of 2007. What's next???????
