I'm sorry you had to read it here, but I've got some really bad news for you. You know that black Pedulla we been talkin' about? Waaaalll, it's been pushed back into the future a bit. See, I was down at the local guitar barn today, and there, hanging on the wall, was just the purtiest leetle Fender Jazz Deluxe V FMT, just beckoning me like a demon. I'm tellin' you, it was evil. I never shoulda' had the man take it down off the wall. I know satan was behind this, because there was an Eden Metro right there on the floor. What could I do? I was compelled to plug it in and ... well, that salesman probably was beelzebub hisself, and starts cuttin' the danged price and all. I was resisting of course, trying to calc out 60 percent of list in my head, tellin' him all the while, "No, that still sounds a little high," but it was no use. He knew what I was up to, and dropped the price down below their cost. No really, he showed it to me right there on the computer screen. I was dead meat. I'll post a picture of it very soon. It rivals my pet Lakland, Amber, in beauty. Gard, I apologize to you for my weakness here, in public, on this forum. Don't hurt me.
