    Here is my 6 month old son approving, and doing his best Dime impression (I was listening to Floods while taking these pics). As a side note, Pantera is still my favorite band, and his name is Vincent Paul:rocker:

    Clearly he is working on his open-string tapping here!

    Anyway, specs are mahogany body, mahogany set neck, rosewood board, Grover tuners (non-locking but feel very stable), 25.5" scale and some stock Randall pups that are a little lacking for cleans but actually sound pretty damn good under high gain (which is where this thing will live).

    AND, I got it for $100!! Pretty stoked:agreed:

    How did you convince your wife to name your kid Vinny Paul?

    She fought pretty hard on the name the whole time we were pregnant, but in the end she caved. At this point she loves the name!

    Thanks man!! It is an Indo-made guitar, but it is in great shape. The fretwork is pretty damn good, and there is very little wear anywhere on it. Whoever had it first didn't play it much it seems....

    To be fair, Pantera wasn't the entire reason for his name, but it had a good amount of influence on me once the idea came up.

    When I clicked a thread about being vindicated and saw a photo of a baby trapped against the floor, I knew congratulations were in order: Happy NGD.

    Good Score! These HM Washburns are great playing and sounding guitars...Phenolic Fretboard! They made a few of these V's in 7 string too...wish I could find one of those for $100!
