It arrived from the importers to the local dealer this morning. The salesperson called me on my mobile to tell me how nice it looked so I had to go & check it out for myself. I was shaking so much when I saw it I hardly trusted myself to hold it let alone plug it in & play it. I tried several Rays ( both 4 & 5 string ) prior to placing this order so I can imagine how great it is going to sound when I get to plug it in. The best piece of Natural finished Ash I have ever seen in my life!!! Beautiful straight grain, they really do save the best pieces for the clear finishes, this one is A Grade!! The neck is an awesome chunk of maple heaven, the fretwork & feel of the neck is exquisite, The hardware to die for, all tucked up in one of the best looking hard cases I've seen in a long time. The hipshot detuner & straplocks are in the case ready to be installed. Will hopefully get to take it home sometime this week, will be able to post pics then. Can you tell I'm excited???
