What can I say... I always wanted a Vinetto.

    So I got me a Legato:

    I wanted a T-style with mini hums, so that's one more off my list.

    Next up: a whole lot of saving money to buy a cool semi-hollow. I am thinking a Collings I-35 or a SoCo. Then I will have all the sonic avenues I lust for covered.

    Consider me happy :)

    Sweet guitar, Mojo!

    Scott Lentz told me recently that placing the grain in such a way as to focus on the bridge are makes for an especially vibrant, punchy guitar. Your new Vinetto looks good on every possible account! Enjoy :AOK

    Thanks! Finances dictate that I'd better slow down, though ;)

    I ain't complainin' :D

    I would have loved to get your coppertop Trussart, but I would *really* get in trouble now! I hope you sell that beautiful guitar fast, but deep down... I don't. I hope I have time to reload and make a play for it ;)

    Well, with all the talk about how we can all go green, I think you're on the right track!

    Call me if you want to talk semi hollows in our line. I've got a proto working you might like to be the lab rat for.
