    Nice!

    Mine's the Aether Green.

    The Pelham Blue Meteor might have just 'provoked' me into something for next year!

    Thank you! I miss Matte on these boards, his continuous exploratory cycle through tools from builders far and wide for his insane chops was a gateway drug for me.

    I don't miss his attitude. Never liked his playing.

    He is a great guy, but can rub some the wrong way. How about you post some of your playing so we can all chime in on what we think?

    Agree with Wyatt. Matte is a very passionate guy, who, like me, is prone to hyperbole.

    He's an original with a well-developed and personal view of things musical, which I respect even though my tastes are far more traditional.

    Never met him in person, but if I did, I'd give him a hug as an old friend to thank him for all that he has shared with me and others related to our shared passion...guitars and gear.

    Wyatt, hope all is well with you and yours! Haven't seen any new pictures of your constantly evolving collection lately.

    I never said my playing is better than his, so why should I post it? I said I don't like his style of playing or posting.

    You said “Never liked his playing”, that is very different than not liking his style of playing... when it’s phrased as you put it, it’s fair for us to see ask to see your playing so we can see if “we like it”....

    57Gold, hope life is good in Tampa , I think that is your home??(I was back there over the summer and still cheer on the Bucs every week)... I do have my probett coming but other than that, will be having a huge selling off soon as I just don’t have the time to play with my kids activities. Wishing you a happy holiday season!

    Probably better if we don't spend a lot of time discussing former members.

    Back to the Rockett III... I have dreams of a HB bridge/P90 neck Rockett.

    Agree with this.

    P90 in the middle offers some cool tonal options in combination with neck and bridge, much better than I expected. Thought PAF would "overpower" the middle, not the case.

    Did I say that these are finely made instruments?

    Nah not different, just you trying to justify your opinion, YOUR view.

    I'm mostly a Tele/2 pickup sort of guy, and 2/4 position sounds mostly don't grab me. :)

    HOLY MOSES, that is a dope fiddle. Is the color perhaps inspired by @Furilla's Ronin Morningstar? Great choice!

    Beautiful color, it actually reminds me of @Double V ‘s Mirari.

    Wow is right!
    Classic beauty....
