    Well, well, well, look what the post-person brought today!

    [​IMG]

    And look! The Post Office was so gentle with it that James' security picks never moved off the box! ;)

    First order of business is to carefully cut it open exactly on the secret spot to make sure that little freak Gollum

    [​IMG]

    Hasn't stolen.. . .

    [​IMG]

    The Precious !!

    Nope, here it is, safe and sound.

    [​IMG]

    OK, carefully, now. Can't even imagine scraping a knife blade across the contents of this box !!

    [​IMG]

    Suspense builds--peanuts, some foam and. . . . .

    [​IMG]

    Why look! It's an old flannel shirt! James sent me an old flannel shirt! Just my size and my favorite flannel pattern, too.

    But wait, (as the infomercial says). . . . .This is an awfully heavy shirt.

    [​IMG]

    Whoa, enough clowning around. It is simply amazing. I never believed it could look this good. I may have to turn in my spray rig after this.

    [​IMG]

    The repair area is 150% perfect. And Nosmo, I'm pleased to say that the mahogany patch in there does have exceptional tone, so no worries about truth in advertising!

    As hard as it is to pull off a nice black finish, James has done wonders with this thing. He said it'll need some swirl remover, but to tell the truth, I can't see enough to even bother with right now. Maybe later. But it's really really impressive. I'm gonna have to get busy and get some of my other projects going so I can get this one going.

    Thanks again, James, it's fantastic.

    And it's even better in person!

    I was going to say "thanks", Ms. Reb, but James gets all the credit. All I did was screw it up enough so James took pity on me and offered to do this fantastic repair on it.



    :p She's what my spray job would have looked like! That picture is truly disturbing on many levels. I'll thank you in advance for the bad dreams ! :D Wow. She went out in public like that, and she's smiling. And a guy is about to kiss her. No, wait, maybe he's spiittng to see if he can help wash off that hideous stuff.

    Good job opening the box Rick.

    Rick,
    I think he's under strict orders to not touch the paint. I don't get the "I need a laxative" look on her face however. Maybe that spray on stuff has that effect?

    Maybe she was part of that spin art game Rob was talking about. Because she sure looks like it...

    LOL, yes she may have crashed the party at Jup's house and got spin arted by Mr. Yeknom. I'd pay money to see that.

    Would you consider a ghost piezo in that too?

    What? The spin-arted lady? :D

    No, I'm just more of a traditional pick up kinda guy. Besides, im not sure you can nestle a piezo pick up under a Tune O Matic bridge.

    There are several TOM piezos on the market.

    It seems kind of odd to me to want your LP to sound like a buzzy piezo acoustic but each to his own.

    You could go with a rod type piezo as well, but you would need a preamp.

    No, no buzzy piezos, but tasty PAFS, yes, definitely.

    Phew! Glad it made it in one piece. I'm always nervous about the shipping part. Thanks for the kind words Rick, and it does need swirl remover
