    Glad you're diggin it, Nino. I'm particularly interested in how you like the sound. Since it never grabbed me, I'm going to be quite happy if someone actually loves it, or something.

    I'm getting antsy waiting for the bass - those f'in guys in brown!! Don't they know I'm waiting?!?!?!

    Ok, Nino, so the MM came. You said you didn't play it since the day you bought it. Did you ever play it? Man, if it wasn't for the two off strings, I'd swear it came from the factory!

    Very sweet indeed - and I think I'm really going to like the neck. Man - thanks for the deal! I'm bringing it on the road this trip!
