    No longer in the dark

    Hello to you all.
    Today I took delivery of my first ever EBMM guitar.
    It's an Ivory Cutlass - (SSS).
    As I sit here I am just wondering why it's taken me so long to see the light
    and as to the state of mind of the chap who sold it to me.
    I am blown away by the build quality and sound.
    There's only one way I can describe that maple neck and it's playability and
    that it is that it's absolutely sublime.
    Apologies for the muffled sobbing in the background folks.
    It's coming from the Strat guitar cases.

    Happy Independence day to all the cousins across the pond.

    Welcome to the forum family, Pops!

    Do bear in mind that your guitar does not exist without pictures, so...

    Classy!

    What you have not realized yet is that your Cutlass is a gateway drug. In five years you'll be posting your fifth new MM guitar.

    Too late with the warning Wahoonc.
    I am just trying to decide between selling a grandchild or a kidney for an Axis SS.

    That depends on how much gaffer tape I have available and how fast the little rascals can run but I'm thinking
    one minimum out of the four that doesn't have sharp teeth.
