I have to publicly thank Ignacio Banks and Lynn Wheelwright for their contribution to the world of guitar history and knowledge. I received my book today and look forward to spending hours enjoying it and learning from it.

That's lovely. It reminds me of a Blue Note LP collection. If that was the designers intent, they fulfilled it.
May it bring you many years of happiness.

Fantastic! I just got my tracking notice today !!! I haven't even opened the Blackguard Box and I think I am going to buy a 2nd Pinecaster to keep un-opened!

I gave a valuable limited edition collector book to my Mother decades ago, cost IIRC $100 in the 1980s.
She beat the hell out of it!
Coulda been a $1000 book but the condition dragged it back down to $100.
Maybe I should look up the value again?
Why do I care?
Because it was a collector book...

this post makes me very happy

I’ve never ordered something this expensive from Europe, and knew it would take months, I was thinking I could even forget about it by then and it might just never come

I knew the tdpri wouldn’t steer me wrong though

I love Arlo West's " 'Ol Piney" but note how the grain is so straight is like new spruce, straight grain and very light in colour.
Also coupled with Bill Lawrence Wilde pickups.
I grew up walking to High School ( to save the bus fare) and passed a lumber yard where timber dried out in open sheds, the climate here allows that. Anyway I was told to avoid any knots in pine. They want to pop out after sawing. They wouldn't even use those bits for house frames.

Sounds like she really liked it though i.e. wore it out by reading it over and over? Or was she just rough on it? If the former I'd say that was money well spent ;)
