I have attained the holy grail

I picked up my first guitar, an Ibanez starter pack w/ the 10 watt amp, in 1997.

I found jemsite soon after thanks to Vai (and Satch too, big ups to my NYer guitarists)

I first learned about the RG Art here and fell in love with it as most do

I searched for years and 4-5 years past, and I found one on ebay in 2002, but I did not buy because I did not have the money and I was too young for anyone to lend me that amount.

I thought my dream was gone forever

I kept searching for years only to find expired listings or already bought/sold ads.

I just missed Kaas's RG ART on ebay in December 2012 and once again, felt a loss.

I bought a new amp, thanks to the encouragement of my fiancée, and she wanted a tour of my guitar gallery. I showed her them and realized only one thing was now missing, it was always missing. And when I found it in 2002, I had missed it again.

I was going to change things this time.

I went online the night she pushed me to buy the amp and I found the most ridiculous thing Ive ever seen: an RG Art for sale by a private owner and no one had seen it.

I had a hard time acquiring but RG ART #F9714455/970391 is now on its way back home to NYC, USA after being lost in Europe since its listing in german e-b-a-y in 2003.

I am the happiest guitarist in the world atm, and maybe for the next few hours.

I want to thank my fiancée for making me get it this time, I wouldn't have it if it wasn't for her.

But seriously, congrats man! I know the feeling of finally getting your hands on your grail guitar, and the RG-ART is definitely a magnificent piece of...uhhh...ART.

Now: we demand pics!

Re: I have attained the holy grail

To be fair, the other thread was asking about paypal, and I promised id say what it was at the end of the thread.

and it is true, I would expect pics as well, but this was just about the story, you guys have seen an art so u know what they look like, I was just really excited to share it with you cuz this is jemsite man, this is where it all started.

but ill edit this when it comes as NGD in the title as well. sorry for no pics, but I just had to tell you guys man
