    I've got a pair of them, and they're two of my favorite guitars.

    I don't know what the pickups sound like, I haven't gotten around to plugging it into an amp yet. In fact, I still haven't run a guitar into that week old Peavey Wiggy I have in the corner of the room.

    If she does, it could indicate a separate issue, considering that we have no children.

    Cool! It even appears to be your color.

    I'm curious what you traded. I love those stories. I have a 1958 Tele that my dad gave me. He traded a cow for it. The Tele is kind of rough but still the value was not even close.

    Black rifle.

    I play guitar almost every day for an average of at least two hours. I shoot maybe twice in a year's time. It just made a lot of sense based on my current priorities.
