    Welcome and congrats! To post pictures you first need to host the photo somewhere - I like to use Tinyurl.com for single photos or Flickr.com if I want to store a lot of photos. Once you upload the photo, you post the photo link in between image tags, which are [ i m g] url [ / i m g ], but without the spaces. Sorry its hard to explain. Hope that helps!

    Mine arrived last week. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to play it live through an amp yet. Playing it through my Mustang Floor at home, I will say that the single coils are quite strong and there certainly is a variety of sounds here. Nice not to have the volume drop when you switch to single coil. Love the Trampas Green finish!

    Gah, so jealous. Desperately want either an MT in Faded Blue Jean or Mahogany in Charcoal. Rosewood necks. One day!

    This one (the one on his leg) is waiting for me to pick up at my dealer after a successful negotiation that wrested it from Paul. I heard it played by both Paul and Nicky Moroch through a bunch of amps and it sounded great:

    Pernambuco with a coco (I think) fingerboard. An amazing sounding guitar with a cool history. A serious addition to my stable.

    That's funny, I was with Paul shortly after that, at the Wood Library to order a Private Stock and out to dinner, and he told us that story! Good for you, awesome guitar!!

    So your wallet accidentally fell on the floor and the Dealer pounced on it and quickly rang the register?

    Thanks Matt. I have played it live a couple of times now and it has not disappointed. I am not normally a believer in one-guitar-does-it-all philosophy but I have to say that this one covers quite a bit of ground. Lovin' it!

    I've never liked the 513 and that one guitar covering so many sounds is something I never liked, until.... I got my hands on a 408 during the Experience. there's a Std with rosewood neck on my wish list.

    Something like that!

    On the dealer's eBay listing, I made an offer. I got some sort of error message or something that made me think that the offer was below the limit they set to automatically refuse the offer. So I moved on and forgot about it, and kept on searching and thinking about it.

    Then the next day, I got an email saying the offer was accepted and another email with the invoice.

    I was like "hmm, I guess I just bought a 408!" LOL...
