The new Vinetto relics -- has anybody seen one yet...?
Sooner or latter you're going to have to pony up and just buy one of these things. You've been drooling on yourself for over a year now..
And don't twist that into an excuse to post a picture of your semi naked self sitting on a pony.....
Nah! I was kind of hoping I could pop down and try out yours, first........
Did you ever get an assignment from a teacher in school for a 1000 word term paper and then they changed it to 2500 words but kept the due date the same???
We're still crankin' away, but it looks like we're going to need an "extension" until later in the month. We ended up having to do a lot more "ramp-up" than we thought! Trust me, I'm not complaining about that.
Here's a little preview of part of a small batch of swamp ash SC bodies in production. The stacks of wood on the work table have already been weighed, graded and tone matched, then they get glued up and routed.
The first batch we release will be the SC BG 50 blackguard, followed by some DC 55s. We're also still working on lots of Legatos, Deuces and a few surprises coming down the pike. Not bad for 3 guys if you ask me!
Now back to work for me...
Oh, so THAT's what they look like...!
What...? You want the FULL Monty...?!?
so vince... you blew it with the picture! the word is out now! the cat is out of the bag! way to go!
that's right everyone! ...as the above picture shows... vince's guitars are made out of plain old WOOD! not PURE UNOBTANIUM like everyone first thought!
oh... the shame of it all!
Don't dispair man, many people think Unobtanium looks like wood when they first see it. However, you are correct in that it's not pure Unobtanium we use, but a special alloy of Unobtanium and Mojozium.
Would that be Mojotonium?
Mojozium is the term used when it's in raw form.
After processing, it's called Mojotonium.
you guys need help
Those aren't the relics. They're the unnannounced Vinetto Prenatals.
OK, it's no secret that a lot of woods emit an odor when you work with them. Many South American hardwoods smell like horse manure.
I'll let you in on a little secret. When you work with good swamp ash that's been seasoning a few years, it makes the whole shop smell like fresh beer. It's just one of the perqs of the job.
My shop always smells like that! Even when I'm not cutting swamp ash.:BEER
Truly, a man after my own heart.
Any time frame on the DC 60s? I got me one on order!
ah... mojozium! man, that's the good stuff!
We kid because we care...not sure what we care about, but we care.
Never a dull moment.
I tried to order one too during the promo period.. But Vince never got back, maybe because I have to order from the dealers...
