love the blonde! Enjoy, what a killer guitar to get to play.I hope that beautiful guitar gives you nothing but great memories of your friend. What a beautiful gesture from his family.
Mine came from the same blowout sale -- it's a 58RI that I can't see ever parting with. It's been my "jazz" guitar (as in, it has flats on it) for the last few years.
