Thank you Sir, I agree and would even add an expletive to the cool geet that...I've even got Irish, Scot and English blood pumping through me! And I hear that, I'm an ol Rock n Roll, Blues nut myself which means I'm also a huge fan of Surf as well. Granted this guitar isn't necessary to play and sound Surfy but it does add to my need to have one! And I like Jags as well but this scale and these pickups do it more for me so I don't have a need for a Jag. Well Sir, I am getting paid quite well a good portion of the time I play but am not a gigging musician. Yet. Let me explain... No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Have been a lover of music, guitars and pretty girls since before I can recall. Took a couple years of lessons from 10-12 and for the most part have always had at least one guitar and have bought at least 3 dozen over the years, 8 or so as gifts for son and nephews. Kids are grown and gone, I’ve an excellent job that offers a lot of free time in isolation so have a guitar and little amp with me. I’m also setting myself up to have all I love at hand when I retire. Had Englishman’s Jupiter Thunderbird here the last five 12 hour night shifts and swapped her out for the Penguin Bo this evening. I’m David and am pleased to meet you.
