Topic: NGD!! This time for real!!

Well after the martin went missing and i was confident i would get reimbursed, I went shopping for another. Found a good deal on a minty Gibson J-45 and I now have her in my possession! I made sure the seller required a signature and took off work early yesterday to make sure I was here when it arrived. Well dammit - don't you know UPS ran early yesterday so I missed it! I immediately tracked the package on UPS.com and told them to leave it at the terminal for pick-up and I got her today during my lunch break.

She is beautiful looking and sounding, a pleasure to finger pick and strum. I thought my CA was a loud guitar - it is - this thing is just LOUDER!

Re: NGD!! This time for real!!

I thought I heard the Topdown Shuffle earlier today... very faintly coming in on the breeze. That sure is one loud guitar! 

I'm happy you got a new flat top to love.
