    Congrats, Tomas. That's certainly a different shade of blue. Interesting to see the spruce grain showing though as well as it does. It's a beauty.

    Enjoy,

    Thanks guys. I'm just so giddy. Having fun with a new guitar is like..... well... I don't have to tell YOU ALL, do I?? Making comparisons and doing all kinds of stuff I haven't done in a while to put it through it's paces. Good for me and I'm sure good for the guitar. It's nice to know that this guitar hasn't had a home yet and someone to DRIVE the music from it. I'm so impressed with it's resilience! I mean I'm used to driving the big boys (dreads) a little hard and the smaller ones kinda break down a bit when pushed too hard. This one seems to have some kind of "self-limiting" magical powers. I hit it HARD and it just responds.... not with the volume, but without breaking down at all. Does that make any sense? Not sure I'm saying it right. Anyway, I'm loving this.

    Now back to playing!! Thanks for all the good words my brothers and sisters!!

    Wow, that is Gorgeous Tom! I am so glad that you got the opportunity to get this Guitar. This is the model you have been chasing for quite some time now. I'm glad I could help out however little it was and hope the two of you get the chance to have some quality time together. My favorite thing about buying a new guitar is personally setting it up once it settles in to its new environment and playing it through the break in period. It is like a long drawn out first date where you get to know the guitar and the guitar gets to know you. That is when the two of you get the opportunity to truly bond with each other. Congrats Amigo, Like I said earlier it is flat out Gorgeous and I hope you enjoy it for a long time to come.

    Congratulations, Tom!
    I am sure it plays and sounds great. It will probably sound even better through your next amplifier purchase.

    Myrtlewood back and sides - one of my favorites! Breedlove did such a nice job on the coloring and finishing.

    May you both age gracefully, together.

    Thanks for talking me down the other evening..... LORDY!! I was so giddy from my impulsive purchase that it was probably painful for you. I tried to focus.... I really did!! LMAO!!

    Oh no.... another purchase!! But I have to listen to it through SOMETHING, you know??

    Thanks for the thought GAD! Yes I am the Enabler's Enabler (say that 5 times really fast) and I take that as the highest compliment that can be given from other like minded guitar individuals. The shirt is a cool idea but I have another that would be really cool as well. Maybe one of you high ranking LTG Super Mods could change the title of "Senior Member" over my Avatar Photo to "Enabler's Enabler", LOL!

    Nice. I like it. But I am getting a sense of deja vu abiut the fabric on the ottoman(?) under the TV. :-)

    Play it in good health. Nothing like a new guitar to ratchet up the enthusiasm for all things guitar.
