My wife and I were "out and about" today and she tells me to pull into the local guitar shop. She had ordered a Fender American Deluxe Jazz QMT (Tobacco Sunburst) for my Christmas Present back in late July. Well...it arrived today and she wanted me to make sure that it was the "finish" I wanted. The guitar guy takes it out of the shipping box, lays the case on the counter and opens it up.....My heart actually "skipped" a beat!!! I have never seen anything so good looking in all my life!! (Well, other than the Mrs!)...anyway...the guy asks me if I want to give it a try...My Wife jumps in with "NO!"....so he closes the case and that was it...she refused to pick it up today...says she'll go back and "get it later"....Damn!!!! Oh...another thing....everyone in the shop had to come and "take a peek"...the consensus....Beautiful Bass!! Man....I can't wait for Christmas!!!
