We did a photoshoot. It was fun. But I wish I could have had the new guitar for it.

The projected date is tomorrow.
I know it could still be a couple more weeks, but I hope not. :)

Been watching the Facebook pics religiously, hoping for a glimpse of it.

Oh man, just got word from Mike Jones.

She's in final buffing. Has strings on it already, so I'm guessing it was in QC and just needed a little love from the buffing wheel.

I know, right?

Since the car isn't mine we'll probably have to go with the shirt.

And I have a strap with Chevy logos waiting for it. :lol:

The guitar is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow... Saturday.
Unfortunately it’s being sent to my place of work (I didn’t want it left on my porch), and though I’ll be here the receiving department won’t.
So I guess I get it on Monday.

Can you put a note on the receiving door "DELIVERIES: PLEASE COME TO FRONT DOOR" or maybe "FED EX: PLEASE CALL XXX-XXX-XXXX"?

If I were going to be here all day, I'd totally do that. But I'm only going to be here for a couple of hours, there's only a slim chance we'll cross paths. But I will keep and ear open for receiving's doorbell though. :)

Very cool. That's going to be one meaty bridge pup sound. I feel like it's slid a slight bit further up from the bridge versus your typical bolt neck / 25.5 classic style build?

It's no secret that I'm not a big Aries guy, but that's got a very cool simplicity and feeling of completeness about the design that some of the others w partial top + revealed body wood underneath don't have. Looks awesome! 8)
