    yeah, you've seen it before, maybe.
    i still love it;
    this is a remarkable instrument, in every way
    conceivable to me.
    i remain fully aware that you may not love it,
    for whatever reasons.
    still!
    freaking awesome.

    What's not to love? Looks rad, probably sounds even better.

    It's actually glowing. And floating off the ground!

    What an instrument.

    My new favorite color.
    I love my D'Pergo as much as any guitar I've ever owned but the color of yours is over the top.

    The neck looks so comfy.
    Didn't you mention that you threw the trem out of wack.
    Were you able to dial it in?

    David,

    That is sick, just sick - so classy with the bare board.

    Hope all is well with you.

    I've been wearing out the new CD. I hope one day you will come out to the midwest so I can hear it live.

    Really, really love that color. Somewhat understated and eye-popping at the same time.

    Just in looks alone, I love that guitar splatt! Completely breathtaking!

    I apologize for asking what has already been asked (I'm sure), but what are the specs? Specifically, I am interested in knowing the body wood and whether or not the middle pickup is RW/RP?

    Many thanks!

    Love the plain maple board w/ no dots, and I think that color is the cats ass.

    Beautiful guitar. I love the details particularly. Prettiest guitar back I've seen.

    You're teasing us, David. Give us a closeup of that bridge.

    D'Pergos look so elegant. Just looking at pictures of 'em, they look like perfection, and super comfortable to play. Hell, they even look like they sound killer :roll.

    The only way that one could be better is if it was a Bakersfield... and had a rosewood board ;).

    David,
    What kind of play do you get with that trem? How high can you pull a note up, and how far down will one go?

    i was wondering the same thing. i've never been able to get the right 'feel' (super loose and springy) out of a vintage style 6 screw trem.
