Good call FireEagle!! That poster is the original art work for my band "Gunfighter" from 25 years ago. I posted 4 songs from the EP we recorded in Orlando, FL.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcp...glSTRaA/videos

Had a good run in the Southeastern states, doing shows with acts such as....Pantera, Molley Hatchet, Robin Trower, Every Mothers Nightmare, Jeff Healey(he played my Les Paul that I had at the time), Saigon Kick, and a few more I can't remember.
Doriangrey.....As far as the best playing one....they are all different, but believe it or not, my pink RG25th probably has the best all around sound and playability, with the swirl one right behind it(swirl wins for coolest looking one). The purple ESP has the lowest action at 1mm, and probably the hottest pickup(Seymour Duncan SH-6).

Those were the days... I was in the military back then stationed in North Carolina. We used to go see a lot of bands around the area... NC, SC, and GA. Maybe I saw you guys... something about the name rang a bell. I remember seeing bands out of Florida all the way up in NC though... at the local hotspot, "The Night Owl" (everyone called it "The Fight Owl" lol.. because there was always hotshot 82nd Airborne guys there acting tough). I remember a particularly good band call "Lois Lane" out of Florida... with a hot lead singer gal. Ah... spandex Those were the days!

We played in Georgia and SC a few times, so you might have seen the band. I can't remember the club names though. Lois Lane does sound familiar. We didn't wear the spandex because we would have gotten our asses kicked! LOL.

I'm jealous. I feel like everyone who's sent Livewire a guitar has gotten theirs back... except me >.<

Nice looking bunch of fiddles you have there.

The neck is actually thicker than the one on the new M-II. It's slightly thinner than a standard strat neck, but the fretboard is quite flat. Add tall frets and a VERY light finish (feels like tung oil). Straight as an arrow with super low action(1mm at 12th fret and very little buzzing). I think the neck radius is 12". I bought the guitar brand new 16 yrs ago, and it still looks brand new.

Thanks!! My Livewire guitar plays and sounds fantastic. I swapped the magnets in the V7 and V8 pickups from one to the other. Made a world of difference. Post some pics when you get yours. You'll love it..... The paint, and especially the clear coat are stunning.
