Thought I'd share the newest addition to my family!! 1988 G&L El Toro!! I'm thrilled! Saw this hanging in local GC about a month ago. Played it and was blown away - it fit like a glove right away, I could get a wide array of sounds, and set it right and it shakes the walls! Loved it, but wasn't sure I wanted to spend the $, so I put it back.... and was back the next day. Played it again, left again... but the thought of this beautiful instrument getting used and abused on the GC floor was too much to take. On the third day I went back, and put a deposit. Finally picked it up yesterday. A few minor adjustments and wow, Feels & sounds even better!! What an incredible piece of craftsmanship, crazy there were only 1200 made from what I read.. can't wait to put her to work (just need to install strap locks...) It's got a bit of weight, but the sound is worth it, and the grain in the wood I find beautiful!! I need to give her a good clean up, which I'm doing today, and I can't wait to see her all polished up! *I am curious; my tech said it's a Nitro finish. Anyone know if that's possible or correct? The others I've found online all say poly, but this is not like any poly finish I've seen. There are a few minor nicks in the finish I'm considering "patching". Any advice? Might leave as is, they're minor, just considering options. Anyway, enough rambling. I'll shut up and get to the pics! Thanks for looking!
