    That's a prototype I designed, but never went to marketplace with, as end users do linear runs of cabinets, as well, uppers over them...once done, looks too Tiki... IMO.

    Cheers!

    What is this winter you talk about? We southern Californians want to know.

    Imagine how satisfying it would be if you let it wait for two years.

    I rip it open with abandon-----no waiting. It's a tough world out there, kiddo.

    I do store all of my guitars and their cases either in the den or a spare bedroom, however, even though my unfinished basement has very similar level of temperature and humidity as the rest of the house this time of year (basically perfect....).

    Let me guess, this is the reason why you keep buying and flipping guitars, right?

    All excellent instruments but . . . no mojo.

    Nope. I've had most of my guitars for 15+ years, a couple for 25 years. I've only sold two during the last 20 years (now at 20+ guitars). When possible I test drive them thoroughly before buying to see if mojo is present or not. The rest of the mojo is up to ME and a good setup.

    That 'stare-down' bit really works!

    The OP ordered a used Squire on Reverb, stared at the case for 24 hours, and voila, out pops a new Harrison!

    Nice tele, BTW.

    Funny thing is our mothers wanted us to have on clean underwear “in case something happens to you”. It was all about their image as a mother if an ambulance picked you up after some tragedy. :rotflmao

    +1. The waiting period only really applies to Nitro finished guitars.
