    LIII Buckeye Burl in the House

    I'd been itching to get a LIII for a while, so when I saw the Buckeye Burl run, I couldn't resist! Many thanks to A.J. and Billy for helping me source one. (And to Jeff for helping me decide to pull the trigger ... his 'NYNGD' threads are like crack to an addict and he's a fantastic source of information.)

    First off- this thing plays like butter ... no surprise there. What was a surprise was how great the pickups are! Really articulate, less midrangey than I expected, with a great tonal balance. They clean up amazingly well. I'm also sold on the onboard preamp- really makes dialing in a clean sound a breeze.

    This guitar covers a ton of ground. First time I brought it to a rehearsal by band mates all went on about how good I sounded with it and how I should bring it out regularly. (Hopefully my Morse didn't hear that.)

    Anyhow, without further ado, the obligatory pics!

    Congrats, beej!

    The depth of the figuring on the tops of some guitars can look like swimming pools, or even oceans. It is a compliment to point that out.

    The top on your LIII looks like the cosmos!

    Enjoy playing it.
