+1 to dhutson's (I am fast approaching 50 as well, sir) and jwmartin's posts. I just too recently to admit, have experienced obsessing over guitars. (Anyone that has read my (now embarassing) posts from last December, this past January and February can agree with this.) Oh, I still go into GC to breathe in that intoxicating scent of new guitars and amps. But, twice in the last month I have been able to walk in and out without coming home and telling the wife "I have really found the guitar of my dreams, this time." To which she (for some reason I can't add smilies) rolls her eyes and sighs, knowing full well I won't shut up until I go back two or three more times to obsess over it. Lately, I have been trying to channel my energy toward being a better guitar player. Either way that it turns out, you will get over this and hopefully look at it as a "life" lesson.

Best of luck. my young friend. Keep us posted on how it goes.

Jim

I love happy endings.

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

So I missed this thread until now, but congrats, MetallicaMan! I would have posted something along the lines of "you're probably all good, it sounds like you're on good terms with the shop, and they've been giving you receipts and stuff, so just stay in touch with the dudes, and it'll probably be fine", but it looks like it all worked out for you. That's great. I <3 my Malmsteen(s) too. I sort of have two, a sonic blue 1988 (in the avatar), and one that's a partsocaster based around another '88 neck (warmoth body, lollar pickups). They are great guitars.

Well you finally got what you wanted - I hope you're enjoying it as much as you were anticipating! In fact, have you put it down yet? Let us know how it's going!

A word of warning - no, not the guitar, the case. I have the exact same one - or at least, I did have until it fell to pieces on the baggage conveyor at Gatwick Airport. If you're planning on flying anywhere with it, I'd advise you to take a good big roll of gaffer tape!

:D :D :D

Nice Strat! Is it a Squire? ............................................ :P

Just kidding

Take good care of that thing. I'd hire a body guard for it.
