I've been GAS-ing for one of these since they first came out but managed to stop myself from acquiring one until my mom & sister were way too generous w/ a Sweetwater gift certificate for my impending birthday. Being a good part of the way to covering it financially I went ahead & pulled the trigger on one earlier this afternoon. Unfortunately, the pics of my exact one were already off the site by the time I thought to grab them, but here's the next closest to it from my memory: Seems like it should be pretty darn flexible in tones for me. RJ Ronquillo can sell me on a whole lot of stuff though : The few clips I've heard of it acoustically have seemed really impressive to me as well. I might have had a tough decision if they had the Special in the pretty great looking blond finish GC/MF has, but the satin metallic finish of this one is at the very least equally as pleasing for my tastes aesthetically & I'd imagine more comfy on the functional front for me. It was cool that they have it estimated as arriving on my birthday Pretty excited for this one so needed to share, thanks for taking a look!
