    I plan on doing that on Sunday, once I can get an instrument cable.

    (My opinion only...)
    Kinda mean and parentally cruel (yet incredibly wonderful of them to get you in the first place) to show off the big gift and make you wait for it until Christmas...yeah, I speak from the opposite experience, as I was talking about getting a V kit for myself and ended up getting my birthday present 2 months early...
    It's gorgeous, and what a first electric!
    I wish you patience and I hope they break down and let you have it early...it's too big to not have burning in the back of your mind...
    Merry Christmas, DS!

    I got to test it out today, to make sure it wasn't defective. I'm gonna lose my mind in the next two months.

    Congrats on an amazing guitar. I like the 5420 just as is. I think you will too.

    I might do some cosmetic mods, like taking off the pickguard and/or changing the truss rod, but I'm in agreement. It sounds glorious.

    Congratulations! But we do have protections against cruel and unusual punishment.

    When you have your first born, tell your parents they have to wait 2 months to meet him/her. Revenge is a dish best served cold. :p

    That's assuming I've shaken off student debt to be able to support a kid. What a thought!

    Congratulations! She's a beauty! Your parents were wise in getting it early this year. Shipping is going to be backed up close to Christmas.

    Congratulations! I just got one in August, my retirement gift to myself. Love It!!! I had the pick guard off for a while to adjust pickup heights, but ended up reinstalling it. I'm getting a Duane Eddy Bigsby handle for Christmas that I have to wait for, so I feel a small percentage of your pain...

    I’m betting that wait is getting harder every day

    You have no idea. I'm waiting for my parents to watch their annual not-really-a-horror-flick to yank it from their closet.
