    I tried my best to get this for my wife but she still wants her Tesla X. And it's too late because she got her notification it will be here Nov 24.

    (off topic) but here is my $.02 opinion on my new Smart Twofour electric. I love it. plenty of torque. Easy to drive. And it's a convertible.

    Now back on track.... I did make an offer on this fun J-45 just now. Hopefully she will be on a Fedex truck to my house soon.

    Let me know if you ever come my way. Jam session is always fun. I mean I like listening in on a jam session. I have only been playing guitar for 2 years. I started my collection of guitars 3 years ago.

    Epic thread. Hope the dealer was fair to you on the trade. As to the TwoFour, what is range like? I have a Kis Soul EV that I love, but currently sitting at dealer for nearly 60 days waiting for new battery . My attorney has sent a demand letter to Kia. I love the car but thought about giving the the TwoFour a try. At least it is Benz like service

    It says 60 miles but told city driving was closer to 70/80 miles. I hear that battery issues is why 80% of electric car customers are leases. No matter how much sale members state that the software updates will keep the cars relevant in the future with newer models, the physical matters such as drivetrain, brakes and battereis will be left in the dust. Electrical drivetrains will far advance the pace of mechanical drivetrains. Now supposedly Tesla replacement batteries are half the cost to replace than whewn they started which is obviously good news for all Tesla customers. These are only my thoughts.

    I would suggest a test drive. I like the interior. Very quiet at highway speeds. Living in Atlanta, using highways is a must. I really like the pull from 0 to 30. I am able to pull away from stop light to stop light from regular traffic. I put a 100' extension cord in the back just in case no plug close by. I wonder if I can pull a tiny trailer with my Yamaha generator on it.

    Hope you get the battery situation cleared with KIa.

    +1 I was thinking the same thing. I've only ever had Ferrari's and Lambo's. Wondering how you feel the Mac compares? Does it have the passion and or emotion of the other?

    The McLaren 570S is to this point my favorite sports car drive of all time. I love Ferrari, haven't owned a McLaren yet but as Indy's are more able to service them, I'm certain there's one in my future. Hell of a drive.

    You know it's really hard to say. Only have 200 miles on the Lambo. I do enjoy the 580 over the 610 for sure. Just knowing the backend can come loose at any moment makes it more visceral. Now I would say the McLaren is more comfortable (in the pocket feel) as to on top with the Huracan. Hate to say this but McLaren is more refined than the lambo.

    I will put it this way, for a experienced driver, the McLaren is better for him/her. But for "careful" street drivers, the Huracan is more fun. And the backfire makes it so much more fun. I see BMW even made their Z4 M40i have backfires. I guess the latest rage.

    WIfe was like hey the same info/air controls that was in her old Audi Allroad.... oh boy!

    I love that! Thanks for the comparison. You've gotten me significantly intrigued. I will need to take my dealer up on his offer to test drive a new mac. Thanks again!

    I had a 2005 lambo Gallardo, interior felt like an audi…. my 2005 F430 Ferrari feels more Italian inside then my Gallardo... I am thinking of either adding a 570s spider or replacing the F430 with the McLaren... I do like the Huracan , but don't want to spend that much on something I don't get to use often..

    Hey... yes I got it today. UPS is not the most reliable shipper.

    I got my Collings 12 string from you about 2 years ago. Great store you have.

    If you ever come across a Gibson M-III in the orange, please save her for me. I have the red, blue and green. Just missing the orange.

    Thanks again for all you do for guitar lovers.

    Yeah, I was informed of the UPS issues on your order. It's crazy how much we have to stay on them, considering the volume that we ship overall they are great. But when something goes wrong they REALLY get it wrong! In the last year they have headstocked a couple REALLY expensive vintage pieces that we bought. As for your other request, I can guarantee you that my guys will have your orange Gibson M-III shortly.....

    That's epic. It's what I wanted to do for my 50th. I don't have 1/100th of your collection, but enough equipment to pull off a small concert for sure.

    LOVE IT!!!

    $100,000* PRS guitar could be yours

    Cherry sunburst, custom wide/thin 24 fret. Believe I purchased it in 1996-98. I’d have to find the receipt.

    It’s signed by my former neighbor, Derek St Holmes (wearing black hat)



    *includes a 1988.5 TR owned ~25 years. “Hey honey, I didn’t buy another car. It came with that new guitar I bought.”

    Offer expires February 14, 2019 just like any good sweetheart deal.
