    Hope my last post isn't counted as my response! Sent it before seeing Question 1.

    Anywho.... The office of the president provides me, as well as my esteemed cabinet, with the bully pulpit to sing the praises of the guitar, the man, and the company. The DGT really is an astounding guitar, with great feel, a unique (and in my opinion) unmatched set of pickups, ergonomic controls, and a variety of looks. The aristotle ticket is dedicated to the promotion of the DGT to the everyman. We're not just about posting cool pics....we're about breaking the stuffy mold to appeal to all. We gig this stuff, we love this stuff, and we look good doing it!

What does the DGT Club President really do besides post "Your President approves" in every DGT thread?

    Since I cannot "unseat Kevin", do I need to answer this question? <chuckle> #debatehumor

    And what torch is this, anyway? Can it burn things? I am ALL about fun, and clearly have waxed poetic about my respect for the hard work that brought us this guitar. Since the day at the 2007 experience I first saw/heard it in action, I was enamoured. I researched to the bone and REALLY wanted to know more about this quest to improve the McCarty(a love of my life). Was I fearful of big strings? YES! Was I fearful that the neck would not jive with my hands? YES! But I learned, persevered, and it has become the best single guitar a man could own... I have preached the gospel to BAM and VR and PRS Official, and I have spread the good word to the general public through Facebook! I tell every soul I meet about this guitar, and I try to enable ANYONE on the fence about one to take that plunge. Encouragement, respect, and a lot of fun. Not to meantion...

    The DGT club president should be the biggest cheerleader for the DGT in whatever variant - new, old, pritistine or modded to the max. The current Prez only wants to sit on his Laurals (and maybe a few Hardies), and Harker only wants 'pure' DGTs to come out of the factory and also that they never be modded by the user in any way. On top of that, Harker can't even find his way to his soap box. I hope it doesn't have anything to do with the driver we lent him LOL

    The aristotle/rugerpc ticket wants to welcome anyone who has even just a serious interest in DGTs to the club. How else to help the masses to ownership?

    I ordered my David Grissom Trem the minute the MODCAT was available for entry in the computer system. Brian Meader called me and said, "it's being announced...the David Grissom model is a reality!"

    That was July 12, 2007...the order was placed - GOLDTOP and MOONS. June 11, 2008 - the code was broken...the finish would finally stop cracking and I took delivery of the most important guitar in history since the Telecaster, Les Paul, or Stratocaster, a Paul Reed Smith David Grissom Trem!

    We had a rocky start with a few trips back to the factory - B and G wouldn't stay in tune, tuners stripped, the three way switch failed. But the good times were always there and I stayed true to my nine pound six ounce tone monster!

    With the PTC came with a new and exciting time! 57/08s were installed - Len Johnson was shocked how played in the 6100 fret wire was! Shawn asked my to be a beta tester for a new nut material - back to the factory we went and the original DGT pickup went back into the bridge slot.


    I won't even mention the one piece topped sunburst that was eventually sold to our own Hans! Or the DGT 2011 with its V12 finish and original Phase IIs with the new moons. Or the Standard in Frost Blue Metallic...these guitars are my passion! I have other guitars, I don't play them...I have taken my Goldtop EVERYWHERE. It IS what I play, it is who I AM!
