    The new Ric Sam Ash got in for me after the Fireglo fiasco. Note my mod....removed the pickup cover and fabricated a transparent thumbrest attatched to the pickguard and chrome surrounding the pickup with epoxy.

    You say that now. But after you've spent the money on it and you have it in your hands, your tune changes real fast! ;)

    By the way, Sam Ash is having a scratch and dent sale Saturday. Maybe you can get one a little cheaper.......

    Wouldn't that signature indicate a Charles Mingus fan?
