    Trying Again

    Well,

    I am trying again for a brand new Guild. This time the one I originally wanted but I am keeping it secret until I get it and approve of it.
    I do not want to jinx things like I did on the CE-100D

    I could not get myself to go with Gretsch as they are too rockabilly even with their new centerblock units. I was seriously looking at a Reverend but the price was not right.
    I am keeping my fingers crossed I made the right decision and can't wait to get the guitar which I am hoping will ship today from Chicago land!

    Thanks for the well wishes. I am determined to become a member of the Guild NS Family as well as the Vintage Guild Family (soon enough).

    The new Starfire VI just arrived but I am not opening the case until tomorrow. I know it is not lacquer but I don't want any weird warpage going on due to climate shock.

    I opened the case this morning and there sits a spanking brand new Starfire VI (blonde). All I can say is (from the 10 minutes I looked at it before I left for work) is the Fit and Finish is superb and I do not see anything wrong with it. I mean I am really blown away on how nice it is put together and finished. One happy camper so far and can't wait to play it tonight.

    I think I am giving up. I went over this guitar with eagle eyes and it was perfect until I saw what I would call a crappy flaw that there is no way I could keep it with this particular. No, it is not a nick or ding or dust in the clear coat. It is much worse then that (at least to me) and I cannot believe I did not see it when I looked her over Friday morning. I guess excitement can blind you a bit. Back to the drawing board but no more guitars unless I see them first.
