    Yep! Left a deposit on one of Doug's new Arcturus models.

    It's going to be Coral, with two foil-topped McNelly humbuckers, a Mastery Bridge, and a Mastery Vibrato.

    I wrote up a blog post all about it here: http://www.johnbiscuti.net/blog/2015/3/11/kauer

    tl;dr: The "same old same old" wasn't thrilling me anymore. I'm bored with playing it safe, brand-wise.

    That guitar would've looked great 50 years ago and it looks great now. Congrats.
