Topic: Finally pulled the trigger.
Just ordered my Michael Kelly Patriot Decree today (black vapor model). Their new this year and the winter NAMM show is going on in Anaheim Cal right now so I have to wait a week. I wanted a LP style guitar without the LP price ($399.44 american). Michael Kelly is a real quality line of guitars. I am going to change out the MK PAF's for either a set of Rockfield SWC's or a set of Rio Grande BBQ buckers. Then I use the MK PAF's in my current SG project. You really have to go to the Michael Kelly website and check out their stuff and play one if you have a chance. I was buying a Patriot Custom, then I saw the Patriot Premium, loved the quilted maple top but they quoted me the wrong price and would not honor it. If I bought the Premium I was going to change out the EMG Zakk Wylde pickup set anyway so I bought the Patriot Decree. Now Bootlegger is a happy man.
