They Deliver on Sunday!

Well this thing sure is nice. HRG04-BX 7 string (Black Onyx).

Was shipped on Thursday and I get a call this morning from a currier that said it had to be delivered by 3 PM today - NO PROBLEM! On a Sunday?!??! Unheard of for me (or anyone I know of).

It got here about 2 PM - I pull it out (you know - the "ritual") and it's in DEAD tune, perfectly set-up and intonated. The other guitar player in my band was here as we were working on new material when it arrived - I plugged it in and with a slight twist of a fine tuner or two it was right there!

Headstock is black and not overlay, but other than that it's great. Nice ball-end fret work and the PAF7's sound nicer than I thought - I just got a TZ7 Friday but I'm going to wait until I hear it more. Inset controls, angled jack & nice rosewood board. The white pearl inlay is much nicer in person. Goes nicely with the RG-21A.

I know it sounds goofy but I'm so thankful to be this fortunate with the guitars I've had (although there were a few casualties from this deal) I can say I'm happy with it - especially the quality.

A few pics:

Re: They Deliver on Sunday!

Ummm, WOW! That is really sweet.

Must.... Fight.... GAS....

I do have to say that the headstock not being quilted kind of sucks for the price, though black is better than that rosewood veneer on the the newer Prestiges and other J-Customs.

Damn, that is nice. My only gripe is that they don't use lo-pro's on these bad boys.

Re: They Deliver on Sunday!

Wow absolutly stunning!! Could I ask you a favour? Can you take some more High-res pics directly via email? Inparticular, back and front of headstock, full and detail shots of the vine (im really interested in the vine, i need some shots showing the entire vine and parts of it), some good shots showing the natural binding, back of the neck, J-Custom neck joint, and the back and top of the body? Please i'd be eternally in your debt

Congratz on the amazing guitar!!
