    With master builder John Cruz. How he gets guitar necks to feel like that, I'll never know. I think he has a time machine.

    Is that you or John Mayer? It certainly looks like his guitar.

    Or we've uncovered another bizarre detail about Dkzzzz: his fervent John Mayer obsession.

    I am not his fan, but he is among my blog friends. And he is an avid guitar collector.

    I like how this thread turned from Brian getting a Tacoma to dkzzzz's online guitar friends.

    This all gets my seal of approval.

    IIRC he's out of the country, but I'm eager to know how he likes it as well when he gets some time with it.

    The whole thing flopped. For some reason my default address on my PayPal was set to my old address from several years ago. The guy sent the guitar to my old address and had it returned to him... So it didn't get there in time (to my parents house) to take it with me to Korea.

    Then I got back in contact with him, and told him I'll pay whatever the ridiculous cost to have it shipped to Korea. He checked with the post office and its too large a case to send to SK, so I had to take a refund.

    Looks like I'm gonna be checking out the Yamaha stores here in a few weeks. What a bummer. I wanted something really special.

    Wow, I'm sorry to hear that. You can't wait until you get back in the country? Seems silly to spend $500 on something you're not excited with.

    Well I'll be here for 2 years, and right now that $500 is pretty much going to decide on whether I'm eating instant noodles or barbequed seafood for the next few weeks until my first paycheck. I still want one, I guess it'll just be postponed for awhile.
