    Need some advice on new guitar...

    So I am sure this is elsewhere on the forum but has the AL it own neck profile or is it shared with another model?

    I remember listening to demos from both the Cutlass and the AL. Both were great, but definitely different tones for sure. I preferred the Cutlass obviously.

    I want both, of course, and REALLY dig your Starry Night one, radrock! I need to get one now and maybe in a few months get the other. I think the AL might be a flavor I cannot really get from my current stock. My Fender strat is not going anywhere (was my first guitar) so I might wait to see what the next PDN is for the Cutlass...

    I hear ya. Iím keeping my strat too, which I do love. The Cutlass is just a better quality instrument with more of the modern feature. Itís just crazy stable and the pickups are SO even in any setting.

    And that Starry Night... the pics just donít do it justice.

    My LIII is Starry Night... I love it. The finish and the ebony are just spectacular.

    Not sure if any of you are interested but since I have changed gears on my hunt, Prymaxe.com has a BFR Tumescent HSS Luke III on sale for 2250 after clearance coupon. They also have a JP16 for 1800 after clearance coupon.

    Picture quality is poor but I am incredibly excited to see if the AL HH scratches my itch for a little while longer. 😜

    Yep... El Dorado Gold. GC / MF special color... somewhat rare. And you get the tone PP coil splits!
    That's pretty much the ultimate AL right there (along with the MM90 & SSS versions...
    Congrats!
    It might need some clean up & set up when you get it, but once that's done... ROCK!
    Enjoy Your Balls!!!
