    New Arrival in Spinland

    This gem arrives tomorrow, just in time for our annual Christmas Eve family party/jam session.

    It's a Paul Reed Smith Special Edition model 22 semi hollow. I love my digital, and my acoustic, but have been wanting a "real" electric. The hollow body approach appeals to my sensibilities more than do solid bodies. I've been ogling the PRS brand as a serious contender, and found this baby for sale at Sweetwater marked way down because it was a demo unit and has a couple of minor scratches on the back. Picked up a nice 20W Peavey VYPYR amp to go with it. Don't need more wattage, as I don't gig.

    Excited to get my mitts on this bad boy!

    Beautiful Guitar. Love that hollow body! I ran across a PRS SC45 10-top last spring at Guitar Center. Some kid had received it as a gift, drove to Guitar Center and sold it. I came in a few days later looking for a LesPual and saw the PRS and it went home with me. The receipt in the case read, SweetWater.

    Thanks, guys! Loving it thus far. My fingers are burning; the digital is easier to play because the frets are so sensitive, almost forgot what it's like to have to press real steel.

    Playing my tookus off, taking breaks when the pain is too much. Heh. Life is good.

    Yes, my photography skills are as weak as my Spanish.

    Muy bueno 'Spinny' I also had a minor addition to the family......you can't beat "Made in the USA" for that vintage tube tone in pedals.

    Operation "I Want It Painted Black" is nearly complete. I merely await arrival of my custom truss rod cover and my new baby will finally be appointed just how I want.

    And my Angry Angel is now fully-fledged. Those beautiful fretboard birds needed a strong leader.
