    Both my Dad and I have been working so many hours lately, it hasn't left us much time for anything else. The upside is that it means we can acquire a new toy if we see something we like... My Dad linked me to this on Friday evening, I went and had a look at it yesterday afternoon for him and brought it back with me. After year's of wanting a Falcon, I think he's pretty pleased with his new purchase. It's probably the most excited I've seen him.

    Such a comfortable guitar to play. I just need to convince him to let me gig it now! (If we ever get opportunity...)

    I must confess that I never saw one like this before.
    That`s an spectacular guitar. The gold is so much in harmony with the burgundy-red. It´s eye-popping.
    Congrats on that beauty.
    ...and be careful not to make a scratch.

    Saw it in your dad's post on FB, and thought it was a stunning guitar. It really is a beautiful guitar. Hope you and your dad both enjoy it.

    Congrats and HNGD.

    Honestly, I'm not a fan of some of the Falcon finishes and aesthetics... but this one is pretty amazing looking! Really nice... Congrats!
