    6/2004 Model in absolutely dead mint shape. Best used score in my over 30 years of playing.

    OK...gotta ask then. So (app.) whadja pay for it? Seems a bit crass to ask, I know, but your presentation just beggs the question. Very, very sweet axe. How's it sound? Chambered? AC

    $2627 (weird Ebay price thingy) which was $23 under my max. If not for it being so close to Xmas I'm sure I would have been outbid. No chambers (it's about 8.5 pounds but the weight is balanced nicely) and almost too cool to look at. I wanna play it but it wants to be looked at!

    The RIO texas and BBQ set are growing on me. This thing is a Les Paul. I keep thinking I should be expecting tons more tonewise but it is afterall Dave's take on the ultimate LP. In that regard he has succeeded 1000%

    Rios, hmmmm. I have a McNaught DC Semi-hollow that initially had Rio Texas BBQs installed, but when I heard the pronounced 'whomp' midrange over the phone when they demo'd it for me, I requested that they be switched to a set of Voodoo 59s that I sent them. Now it screams, without the 'whompy' midrange...very well balanced and articulate. I know Dave also favors WCRs in his guitars. Now, due to the HB nature of my guitar, the wierd mids were probably a bit exagerated and not a great match for thr Rios, but you may want to consider other options if not completely happy with them. It's too nice of a guitar to not have the optimal tone! AC

    Actually I had posted about a possible trade *wink* if anyone had a high end *wink* guitar from a maker *wink* of McNaught's *wink* caliber who might be interested in swapping *wink*.

    I deleted that post. And ya, I also like showing off. Just wait till the new *wink* Thorn *wink* arrives.:eek:
