    I’d been going back and forth for a while on whether to get the Ultra Tele. So I was in Guitar Center earlier today and thought, if they’ll knock 15% off, maybe I’ll do it. So I asked. The salesman responded, “I can give you a coupon for 20% off.” I’m telling you, the stars aligned.

    (Okay, so I might have driven 40 minutes out of my way, past another GC, and went to the one where I bought another guitar not too long ago, and then made a point of talking to the same salesman.)

    The first time I saw it I couldn’t decide if the plasma burst color (what a weirdly biological name) was cool or just gaudy — but then it occurred to me that I like both. (I think the gold frets really put it over the top.) I love this thing.

    Congratulations and many happy hours of rockin' out.

    That plasma burst looks a lot like aged cherry burst. I'd like to see them juxtaposed.

    I don’t see much of a difference either — I think Fender might have just renamed the color.

    Beautiful guitar. I'm a fan of noiseless pickups too. Is plasma weirdly biological? It is the liquid part of blood that has been collected with an anticoagulent. Donor blood is collected that way so cells can be easily separated from the plasma. Not so weird. In physics, a plasma is a fourth state of matter unfamiliar to most folks. A gas becomes a plasma when it is heated enough that all electrons are stripped from the atoms. You can think of it as nuclei floating in a sea of electrons. Really hot gas. Really cool guitar. I like it.

    I love Galaxy Quest! It's one of the films that I can watch again and again, even if I've seen it a dozen times. Never give up, never surrender!
