Well, the 3-tone sunburst has gone to a loving home just up the highway and Liz is home! She got dropped off at work, and somehow I managed to stick around another 2 and a half hours after that!
Bought from forumite at guitarscanada, absolute stand-up gentleman who held the guitar for me, helped me advertise my sale and sold me a 10/10 guitar.

Initial thoughts are the neck definitely feels a little different then my wide-thin standing up, but a strap adjustment seems to have that fairly sorted. I do miss the split pickup sounds on my Custom 22, but positions 2 and 4 sound good. I haven't spent a ton of time playing it yet, but after this post that's exactly what I'm going to do.
And then, I'm going to stare at it
Looks great, man! Killer guitar!
