    Congrats.

    How heavy is that? I saw a purple one in the used rack at a GC about a year ago, and it weighed a ton...

    It's quite heavy. Def heavier than most Les Pauls you pick up.

    I tried it during rehearsal last night. Sounds great, the neck though is a little narrow in depth and yet wide at the edges, like a shallow D shape. That along with a quite flat fretboard and the 25.5” scale makes for a different feel than I'm accustomed to

    Dude, I thought you were a big fat hollowbody guy. o_O

    That didn't come out exactly like it sounded in my head...

    Ha ha, yeah I was, for the longest time, but I have branched out quite a bit. I've found actual hollowbodies to be a little difficult to control in a a higher-gain application. Semi-hollows work much better, in that context. And they still are my faves, both full hollow and semi hollow archtops. I just have so damn many of them, and getting new guitars is a fun thing :)
