    After searching the web, checking out several places, and calling on what was in stock, to my disapointment the colors I wanted were not avail.:crying: A couple of places had them on their sites, but they were sold. I got a deal on the one I got, Natural Ash body, Maple Neck.
    I have quite a collection and don't have one like this so I'm putting the best face on, but some encouagement from some other owners wouldn't hurt.:smug:

    BTW, the factory didn't have what I wanted either.

    When you look at it with your ears, you will be totally satisfied. :D

    I think natural ash looks great. Besides, it's the sound that really matters. Yeah, we all have looks that we like, but the sound and playability is what really matters.

    I'd wait and get what you want.

    I've done it before and regretted it.

    Special order exactly what you want. It's usually only about 3-4 months wait for G&L to make it for you.

    I would say wait and get exactly what you want.

    Blue burst or Red burst would have been nice. It got kinda complicated, I had already paid him for one at the factory, by the time he called it was gone. So he called me back with the options, I didn't like any of them but the natural was alright, but not my first or second choice.
    It'll be here Monday, if I don't fall in love I'll send it back an wait for another. It's not like I don't have anything to play.:rolleyes:

    dude, wait until you get what you want. The G&L factory will make whatever you want. Tell the guy to call and not "request", but demand. If I can call G&L and give them a custom order, I know a dealer can, for sure.:bassist: :bassist:

    I've been looking at it on the web and it's kinda growing on me, but I keep everything, so I still may just rather wait. He wasn't trying to push me, he was trying to save a sale after the other one I paid for fell through. I think I'll call him this morning and talk it over. I suppose as long as he knows what's going on I can just refuse delivery and send it right back.
