    Less than a week to go...

    ...until my Luke 1 reissue in pearl red arrives I think. I am excited like a kid at Christmas. I've never played a guitar with a floyd and I love the colours of those original luke models. Should be a great addition to the collection. I will post a photographic 'study' of it when I get it, and some pics with the other Luke's for you delectation. I just had to share that. The pearl blue ones are already in stock.

    You'll love the Floyd. I never thought I'd own one. Now I own 3 Floyded beasts. They are a ton of fun.

    Mmm. Maybe not a week. Maybe April if the Andertons page is anything to go by. Anyone know any better? The waiting will be hard.... Still... Good things come to those who wait! Now while my order processes, I wonder if funds will stretch to that other Luke I desire....

    Not sure when it's going to be available, but I do have a question. Is the reissue, red candy or pearl red? Candy red sounds awesome and I think I would prefer that as the color. Anderton's web page states Red Candy, but the clickable advertisement, (on the same page), states Pearl Red.

    Either way it's going to be an awesome axe!

    Cheers,

    As the sun sets for the day...

    Well the waiting is finally over. First of, thanks to Promenade Music who have been completely brilliant throughout this purchase. So as the sun sets over the bay and mountains here, I can give you guys the first few pictures of the Pearl/ Candy Red Luke 1 Reissue.






















    More to come...

    Thanks Tom! The neck does feel to be a different profile to my L2s. Flatter towards the top end. The birdseye in the neck is lovely so i am lucky in this respect. The Floyd is great, as i said a new experience for me. The red is darker than i had anticipated but very rich. Since it is sunset here i have not really viewed the colour in good light, but i am pleased by its depth of shine. The pickups have the newer emg writing, and of course the locking nut does not have bolts through the back of the neck like the original mk1. It is a musicman floyd trem and operates flawlessly. Set up is excellent. The neck plate is not recessed; i know some people were wondering about this. Thankyou Sterling and the ladies and gents at Musicman for yet another jaw dropping instrument. Put more pics up in better light tomorrow.

    Tom - cheers for your comments and support
    Warm regards
