    ...and now the 12 week or so wait starts for both :D I've been obsessed about getting an Oly white/rosewood strat for a long time and my wife thinks this would be a perfect way to commemorate the birth of our first child. Who am I to argue :D She's awesome!

    My only difficulty now is whether to get Lollar blondes or blackfaces in this axe. I play a Bandmaster Reverb and various pedals and tonally want to be in the Mayer/Gilmour/Hendrix ballpark (a small park no?) Anyhow, any opinions will be considered.

    Congrats on the baby! I have a set of twins, that is why I do not play much anymore or really have much contact with adults. I know all the Sesame street characters though!

    Congrats! A Future musician added to your family!

    PS: I love that many of us will 'commemorate' anything to get some new toys! :D
