    Been wanting one of these for a LONG time and just received this morning. I have to admit that out of all the Rays I have bought and sold, this one feels and sounds different in the best way. As Johnny Long would say, lots of Warpaint! Neck is super comfy and maybe the epoxy pre has some "strange magic?"..Anyway, I will definitely be enjoying this experience as its my first Pre-ernie Ray..

    well then, you're off to the best possible start with that ax, IME/IMO! the ax looks like it has served well, "warpaint" indeed...but all broken-in just for you --- congratulations on your new instrument! :thumbsup:
