    I know, right? I want one too!

    So, I thought that it was too heavy for you to lift yourself, but I guess that didn't apply. Either way, congrats, GAD! I'm always in for a Guild game.

    I again find myself living the rare blue Guild dream vicariously through you, and I'm happy someone here bought that X-3000. It's been in Dino's stable for so long, and it needs to be played!

    I'm excited to hear your review, but I'd be more excited to see if you decide to outfit it with HB-1s and the chrome hardware that Han's mentioned

    Looking forward to more excellent pics as well.

    As the answer to the second question (re: muscles needed for unloading thing) is "yes", that you could unload it yourself without need of assistance from additional muscles, how much can you bench press?

    Though I might be tempted to put in vintage HB1s, I'm not sure I would change to chrome. Plus I have a set of killer gold 4-wire HB1s that I bought from Hans with the intention of putting into one of my Nightbirds.

    Now when people see GAD playing this guitar and say how beautiful it is, we can all say, "Oh, that THING???"
