Guys - you are being FAR to nice to Dave - there are no where near enough references to "I've had it with GAS now" - "I've got all the guitars I will ever need..." Come on - stick it to him!!!

Great news Dave.

Have you ever played one or are you buying blind?

I'm sure it will be a dream come true.

I'm sort of buying blind, but I will be playing it before I hand over the balance in a few weeks.

And yep, I know I'm mental.  GAS is a terrible disease.

This is what I tell Jane (the GAS bit, not that you're mental). She just doesn't understand the wants and needs of guitar players. She has heard me say - this is the last guitar I'll buy for a year so many times. Whenever I feel the urge of wanting another guitar I do spend a bit of time thinking of how to approach Jane with the news. Very sad.
I think I hate being indecisive.

Motorbikes are overrated.

A guitar of this quality might stay with you and your children / grand children for generations to come.

And one ingenious riff on it could make you rich and famous, now try that with a motorbike.

If you have a classic motorbike you can pass it down through your family.
you could do a cunning stunt on it and get rich and famous! probably just as likely as getting rich and famous writing a riff... maybe??

I think it's more likely you'd break your neck doing that stunt which would result in your children and grand children never to be born  :?

:lol: There's absolutely no point... we knows, he knows...

Nice one Dave - it does indeed look peachy :D

When it arrives, I'll be very interested to know what you manage to play on it for first few weeks. Are you gonna be stuck trying to get away from Billy Gibbons riffs/licks like I have Brian May riffs/licks?

It's a little bit different than the situation I've been in the last few weeks, because although it's a "Pearly", it's basically an LP, whereas mine is "Red Special" that doesn't quite play like anything else I've ever owned. It immediately unlocked all the Queen stuff I've absent-mindedly fiddled with over the last 30 years... and it's taken me 4 weeks to start playing anything other than Brian May on it!! I've even discovered that sixpences work rather well for me on this one, where they don't on other guitars (I started trying them in 79 or 80 and gave up quite quickly).

Anyway, hope the wait isn't too long, and that it exceeds expectations :D :D

I though Twinfan said he wasn't going to have kids?

So I guess it'll just get left to the local cat's home instead ;)

Exactly right mate, that's where it'll end up!

I'm sure when I'm old and grey there'll be some kid or relative who'll take it off me  ;)
