    I don't have one so I won't argue with you.

    However, I have to say that is one cool guitar. :cool:

    Pretty sweet bird there. My dad could beat up your dad, though.

    That is a fine looking guitar. I got a Firebird about 4 months ago. I am terrified everytime I take it out of the case. I am sure I am going to break the long neck.

    The bird is the word. Way cooler than any Historic Les Paul, IMO.
