    There was a $4kcdn prs 594 goldtop and i thought about it for a sec with my lp classic as trade-in.

    then a toronto store gets a ‘96 R7 with a neck like my standard for $4500cdn. If I didnt have some extra bills this month I’d be hard pressed to not make a trip..

        I've not owned a proper gibson before, and I've been gassing for one since I hit 40 last year.
        Completed it mate.

          A2.7GN CANIBALISMO+ – GREEN NEON OPEN PORE MATTE






          Really dig the neon green Solar A2.7FR I have, but I've wanted to try the Solar+ pickup, don't really want a Floyd on a 7 and LOVE the Canibalismo paint scheme. And, for some reason, I've been feeling the green lately... so, if you see the A2.7FR on the 'Verb, you know why.

          Hmmm...
          Well... the intro to today's SWOLA didn't help things... :doesmath: :looksatbudget: :triestonotgotosolar-guitars.com:

            See that PWH behind him? He's been paying attention and knows that the 3 active members that still post here are still leading the way.

                  Mayones Duvell. Here's an example w/a different top.

                    How hard could it possibly be to continue the headstock finish down to match the diagonal nut?



                    That is not a budget Ibanez.

                      They took the easy route for doing the angled headstock. Compound angled headstocks are a bitch to set up and cut.

                          Yeah that nut is rather unfortunate. I don't want a fanned one anyway, was just tossing out a link to the first one I found.

                          The normal ones are, uh, normal:

                          Mayones from Gdansk, Poland, specialize in building handcrafted and custom guitars and basses.  For a long time, the Duvell Elite has been one of their most popular models.  We just got this one in, and as always, we were blown away by the craftsmanship, finish, feel and tone.  T...

Called the bigger of the two banks, nope, they never even got the pay request to deny it and said it was likely the merchant interface on the seller's website. Emailed Solar support and haven't gotten a reply yet, but it's only been about 5 hours (which also means it's past business hours in Spain). #ImpatientGuyHere

                            Guess Solar doesn't want to alleviate my GAS. Fine, I'll keep my money... til I find something else to GAS over. Or they reply in the morning with a workaround.

                              Dont know how it happens in US but in Europe to buy anything by Credit Card we have a Two Factor Authentication. It's mandatory. So after you put all the info you then get a message or need to open the Bank App on your phone and allow the Transaction.

                                  Usually same here. I get a code sent to me to authorize it, then the instant you put the code in it gives me an error message. Heard back from Solar support this morning and they have their IT dept looking into it.

                                  Talked to him a few months back, but not lately.

                                      So I misread on that R7 and it is the usual larger neck crisis averted.

                                      I’d like to want to just play more, really.
