New guitar day!!! (beware of pics!)

Today the postman had something very special:

On the case it said "Rich Harris" so I had to tear off the package:

This thing was packaged to even withstand the rudest of postmen, but resistance was futile when it got into my hands:


Inside there was that beatiful case:



And inside an even more beautiful guitar:



some details:










Now that guitar is absolutely amazing, I mean I know how a 7vwh sounded and felt from my local store, but this guitar is different. TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
Rich is a wizard. It has perfect fretwork, string action is amazing. Intonation, neck setting, trem... I have never had a better setup guitar in my hands.

The other plus is: Even after paying for shippment and all the taxes it saved me over 500 Euros compared to the local store price. (And the setup of the in store JEM totally s**ks compared to mine.) Saving money while still getting a perfect setup...

Even the "special orders" on how you want it setup and my Shaller strap locks were no problem and are perfectly fit.

Hell I almost cried like a little baby how easy it is to play with this setup.

I already started saving for the next baby (and hopefully it wont take another 5 years hehe) and I will definately again buy from Rich only, because ibanzerules really rules!

If you read this Rich: BIG THANKS!

Thanks folks.

Plugged it into my JSX and blew away the neighbours.

Now to save up for a nice JS I think the JEM plus a JS will give a good range of sounds.
