[It's here!!] GAS Strikes again... Ruby c66

Postby mbardu » Sun Jul 21, 2013 12:00 am

My CT7 is not even complete, and I just couldn't resist the loyalty coupon about to expire...
How weak am I... go ahead make fun of me :oops:

Just ordered a C66 in Deep Ruby Red Flame; Birdseye Maple Fretboard, with slight cosmetic tweaks of Abalone dots, Zebra cream pickups and cream truss rod cover.

Configured it with the vintage tremolo, but setup to lower the pitch only (not floating).

Just wondering now if I should have gone for the Holdsworth headstock...

There you go for all the shame:

LOL, I won't make fun of you ever...I usually buy something FORGETTING I would have said coupon coming! So, not only another item too soon, but without the coupon, which will come in later and expire before I decide I want something again... :oops:
