cruel

my japanese friend has had my latest ls80 for three days! and only feeding me tidbits of info. he just finished taunting me by telling me about the "woman" tone he gets with it thru his original bluesbreaker. he's killing me here!

i'll most likely have the guitar by next thursday. can't wait.

he is a very good friend. he converted his gold top to a paf guitar. he bought a set of pafs for it. he has another 68 gt tho.

one of the owners of the lp reborn is the original owner, it's a very early guitar, and when questioned closely he sticks to his story about a 2 piece neck.
