Ginger CS624M Orangeburst - Sunshine pics added to 1st Post

Postby Geddy » Fri Jun 07, 2013 1:33 pm

Well I got through my painful waiting period and I was almost going to give up on it arriving today ... but she got here at 2:55pm. As promised I immediately took the pictures. However, my batteries died as I had to take the pictures inside with a flash. Outside wasn't an option, cold, dark and very wet. I did breakdown and give her a quick spin and the tone is almost as I had envisioned; very similar to my Gibson Les Paul Supreme but a little brighter. The coil taps are really nice, I don't really notice any drop in volume (something I hated on the PRS Guitars). The neck pickup is much brighter than the Gibsons, mostly due to it being two frets behind where it would normally be, but I really like the variation in tones there.

I think she's beautiful in every way and I am so proud to be the owner of her. Some people had warned me that Orangeburst would be very dark, but I disagree. It's such a gorgeous warm orange/amber and I love the way Carvin did the burst. The blackburst back is awesome, I really, really love it. I think it looks like well aged wood. The back of the neck almost looks like it has been worn through by years of playing. The neck is beautiful and it will not take me long to get used to it all; it's almost identical to my Supreme but still slightly thinner. The action is to die for, much better than my Supreme. Oh my, those new tuners are beautiful and smooth and they look great. The abalone block inlays are crazy beautiful! I didn't notice two things, one which RockCrue pointed out, a one piece koa back, and the second is the ebony fretboard has a bunch of short little streaks in it which I love!

If you haven't guessed yet, I'm so happy right now; definately the sensation of being 8 again on Christmas Day morning.

So I proudly put on my San Diego T-shirt especially for some photos. I tried my best at taking some good photos but it's quite obvious that I do not have the skills that many of you do have. I will add sunshine photos at the first chance I get.

Cheers, 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

EXCELLENT!!

She's a beauty!

The abalone knobs & inlays look really nice against the orange burst. And that quilt is SWEET! It even complements your other guitars ;)

Excellent choice in T-shirts as well Image

Now go play that ting for a few days, then we'll be ready for more photos Image
