    Being a fool for gold guitars I couldn't resist this when I saw it !
    There's a story behind it, as it was Rob Harris' (Take That, Jamiroquai) backup Silo for quite a few years so it's seen some pretty big stages !
    The truth is that I'm not sure yet about its skinny neck, but I love the colour and I have a feeling that she'll be an ultra-useful studio instrument...!
    The shoreline gold looks great on it, the matching headstock looks terrific and being a few inches taller than Frodo I love its compact size !
    I got it through Coda music (UK) and I have only great things to say about their customer service !

    So, here it is !

    That's not being a fool, man. That's being a man of taste AND style. Gorgeous.

    Thanks guys !!

    Last night I used it throughout the rehearsal and I'm completely assured that this is a really good guitar. The available tones are absolutely useful.
    What bothered me a little was that when I tried to re-string it, the locking Schallers wouldn't lock the string 100%. There was some annoying slipping when I was stretching the new strings. I don't know, must be probably the pin inside the tuner.

    Anyway, this is a quality instrument, I feel really good holding it and using it and everyone commented on how beautiful it looks and how balanced and clear it sounds !!
