Well, I went ahead an did it. I attribute the majority of my GAS to seeking the old 1992 Cherry Burst Custom 24 I got rid of around Y2K.

Saw this used, and just couldn't resist. Other than sending in the warranty card (damn!) I don't think anyone even touched her. She's dead mint, and I have never used that term before.

These 2011 Throwbacks are just so damn cool. It's my first sweet switch, and with the 59/09s and 5-way rotary, some very very cool and unique sounds - kinda like my Siggy and my CE got busy and this is their lovechild. She even came with all the goodies: extra set of T&B pups, extra backplate hand-signed by Paul, extra lampshade knobs, LOA, etc.

So it's kinda like I have my old girl back - 'cept she's even better, 'coz she's got wings, and a killer top, and a matching headstock. Maybe (just maybe) NOW I can slow things down a bit...

Maybe anyway, love her...
