    My K-Line Texola arrived yesterday -- it's a special one.

    Here's email I just sent Chris Kroenlein at K-Line:

    Hi Chris,

    The Texola arrived, from Sound Pure, last night. You are really doing it right!

    First thing that struck me is the guitar is pretty light, but very solid. The neck is fantastic. The detail is best I've ever seen - fret ends are smooth, edges of the board feels great. Neck does play like its broken in. Have owned, at various times, Anderson, Fender CS, PRS, Guild, Grosh -- this one beats them. My #1 is a PRS Swamp Ash (maple bolt on with rosewood board) which I've played the heck out of for the last 7 years. Yours feels that good.

    I think the Kleins are going to be great. Neck (Firebird) seems like it will actually be very useable for rhythm. All three positions very workable.

    In terms of looks -- you really got the "aging" right. The guitar does not look like it's "trying too hard". It just looks and feels right. You've truly figured out how to do it in a way that is natural and doesn't scream, or even suggest, "Hey, look at me! I'm old!".

    Anyway, yes, am in the halo state. But, there are guitars that show up and after 10 minutes of playing, you know if it's going to work out or not. Definitely a keeper.

    Finally, Ross at Sound Pure provided outstanding service.

    I'm certain I'll be back for a Springfield. Thanks for all of your help!

    Very cool - bit of a Tele, Jag, mustang vibe going on. +++
