(Please note: I come to this forum to celebrate all the positives of playing guitar. I would like to enjoy my new guitar without the negative intentions, bs, insults, and speculation that were posted by two CGF members on my last NGD post. I'll be disappearing for a period of time. Enjoy your guitars, and thanks for sharing in my NGD. Adios.)

PS: Richard's Guitars, in the UK, also has a good selection -- for members there.

Wow! Beautiful guitar! Love slotted headstocks. I've played a few and they are great guitars, IMO.

This guy makes effective use of his. He also taught me the correct pronunciation (hard c, like Furk).
