    I’ve been moderately busy lately.
    Lots of extra precautions are being made.

    From another guy who got one of those they said they loved it so much they quit playing their PRS

    I’ve wanted one of those for awhile and I probably played that very guitar b/c I tied one out at SAM some time ago

    Let us know

    Congrats: I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. (I have the solid body Elite, it’s a very comfortable and good-sounding guitar.)

    Bill! You’ve been talking about this for a while now you went and did it. Congrats! I know when YOU get a new guitar it will for sure be played for an audience. Enjoy it in good health.

    I know Wes!
    We played on a vinyl EP my friend Bob Rose recorded in the late 70s.
    World class drummer!
    I also played with him in Erik (Hokkanen) & The Offbeats, about 1985.
    This is the record we made.
    I’m not pictured, but I’m on every track.
    Wes has his hat in his hand.

    Yeah that's Wes alright, Fingers Taylor hooked me up with Wes and he played on a CD I did back around 95 and we worked a few festival jobs. Really nice guy and yeah a solid drummer.

    That thing's giving me a bad case of the envy sweats, my lord. Nice buy, man. Got any prime pictures of it from the gig?
