    I've been waiting for this one to come in all week, and it's finally arrived.

    I sold one of my Les Pauls last weekend with the idea of getting something new. After reading a lot of comments both here and on TGP, I figured I'd take a shot on a Logan. And here it is now....

    I have to say I'm pretty knocked out by the quality of this guitar! Sky Blue nitro finish (with a nice texture due to the lack of grain filler), Northern Ash body, vintage style bridge with brass barrel saddles, Modern 'C' neck profile one a one-piece maple neck (nice roll on the frets, too!), 22 frets, a set of Porter pickups that sound full and warm.

    The build on this guitar is rock solid. The pots are obviously high quality, it just feels quality. Weighs about 7 pounds 12 ounces, which is a little heavier than I'm used to (my #1 is a Danocaster that's about 6.5 pounds), but nothing that's gonna kill me. And I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and found the guitar inside an SKB gig bag, which wasn't in the Reverb listing.

    The fact that Bob Logan can turn out such a nice instrument for the price point (well under a grand) is pretty amazing. This is a 10 out of 10. It might be my first Logan, but I'm thinking it might not be my last.

    Before I forget - thanks to @LGOberean (who I think is currently off camping somewhere) and @telemetrix for pointing me towards Logan. Much appreciated.

    Always happy to talk about my Logan guitars. Glad that going Logan worked out well for you. Your sky blue tele is a "10" on looks alone. One of my Firecasters has a neck like yours. And my Logan Custom Challenger is about that weight. Like you said, it doesn't kill me to play it, even gigging standing up, although it's heavier than my current go-to Logan tele for gigging purposes (5 lbs. 10 oz.).

    Oh, and I just got back home from the camping trip. Just finished getting the truck/trailer rig parked in the driveway, and unloading of said rig. My wife went to pick up a pizza for supper, so I thought I check in on TDPRI for the first time in a week. Nice to see your thread!
