    Well I'm acting like a five year old at Christmas....:)

    I just recieved my new Daylighter Express(lefty).:applause:

    This guitar give the most comfort when playing. sitting or standing...

    Oh wait!!!! I was thinking of changing the pups to Mini HB's, but after
    hearing the K90's(Wolfetone), I had a fast change of mind...

    I just can't say enough about it....Hats off to Doug Kauer.::thumb:

    Thought I would throw my LEFTY KAUER EXPRESS into the mix since it is in DOUG's "T.V.Butterscoth" finish as he refers to it! The color is really much
    more to my liking than the more traditional T.V. Yellow finishes that you see
    on most guitars!:p

    Just like the custom wound Wolfetone P-90's the Kauerbucker HB's also custom wound by Wolfetone sound "Awesome"!

    Love the PEARL WHITE finish on your Kauer Express! I thought you might change your mind on swapping those P-90's out when you got a chance to hear them! If you are a P-90 person you will love these custom wound P-90's that Doug uses for the Kauer's!

    Thanks Mac....I really love your TV yellow Kauer.

    I wasn't a so called P90's guy, but I'm having second thoughts now...

    I was gassing for another guitar purchase, but the Kauer Daylighter Express, washed the gas away....

    Got a chance to take a first hand look at some of Doug's work yesterday. Just outstanding stuff, I like his take on a unique body shape and they sound really, really good!

    Also, he is now producing the Soloway guitars so things are looking bright!
