I picked up this new ray 35 today. I ordered it about 3 weeks ago but there was a shipping delay. Plays like a dream and I can't wait to hear it live on Friday. She has a tort pickguard but I'm going to have a black one made. (Tort isn't my thing) Unfortunately I have a big test tomorrow in my EPSY 412 class. So I'm gonna have to find time to cram for this test while being distracted by my new baby.
