    Talking Just scored my 2nd Ball...a 20th Silo!!

    So, after mucho deliberation and lots of tooling around the interwebs I finally pulled the trigger on a new MM! Thanks to the wonderful folks that regularly post here, I found a lead on a 20th Anniversary Silhouette - Rosewood board, hardtail, matching headstock, and really sh***y flame top - and absolutely could not pass it up. It's hitting the road with UPS tomorrow and I should have it in a few days. I'M WAY STOKED RIGHT NOW!! As we all know, with no pics it doesn't exist, so I'll post some as soon as it arrives. Cheers!

    "20th Anniversary Silhouette - Rosewood board, hardtail, matching headstock, and really sh***y flame top"

    Sounds like a winner to me. Here is a picture of your guitar's twin brother to tide you over.

    I stepped upon the platform, the man gave me the news
    He said "You must be joking son, where did you get those shoes?"

    They really are beautiful axes and I have also been on the hunt for one myself. Right now I am looking to unload some gear in the next two months and replace it with some EBMM guitars I want bad.lol I figured this would be the best route to go as I have way to many guitars I dont play and very little room.

    Hey Roubster do you ever go to Maggio Music on 84th and 18th? I remember you said you were from the Ridge so I was wondering.
