    Wow, that was fast, mine is just nearing completion. But I sorts made it happen that way. I ordered it in a color that didn't want to play well with the ppg base coat. But dupont hot hues candy true blue over medium silver flake!!!! Oh yeah!!! To me this guitar is gonna be a looker. And its been just under a year for me too, ordered mine in the first week of may. But from the few I've played, its well worth the wait. Now if I could only learn a g chord or something to play on it lol.

    Just a few more hours. I bet you're not going to sleep a wink tonight. Take my advise, call in sick and have fun. You deserve it.
