The UPS man left something on my doorstep for me, well, 2 somethings actually. I carry them up to my bedroom, where the magic happens. I like the looks of the big box: I decide to open the small one first. Gah! Fucking packing peanuts! They are the bane of my existence and my mortal enemy! I hate them with a fiery passion that burns deep within my blackened soul! Get rid of some of this shit to get at the gooey insides. It's a perforated rack panel, to let the light from my LED fans shine through, and to provide more ventilation to cool the GP3. My camera doesn't focus without a flash, but I assure you it looks fucking bad ass. Time for the big one (that's what she said): AaaaaAAArarrrrhrhhhhgggghhhh!!!!! Packing peanuts! I swear I'm still finding them from when I unboxed Norbert years ago. Get rid of some of these bitches. OMG! CentaurPorn's calling me! I wonder if he likes me? Time to remove this fucking thing from the box with my superhuman strength: YEAH! THAT'S THE FUCKING TICKET! CentaurPorn's calling me again! I think he has a crush on me. I won't tell his girlfriend though. I still need to do something with all these packing peanuts... I start devouring them, hoping to gain their life energy to use in future wars against their brethren. I notice a bit of damage to the case...kind of disconcerting: I open this bitch up to inspect: Guitar looks to be in perfect condition thankfully. I could care less about the case, I got this for a RETARDED price. But....what's this? MORE PACKING PEANUTS?!? OMG!!! IT'S IN MY FUCKING HAIR! GET IT OUT!! I start setting this bitch up to get a feel for it: Now for some sweet ass action shots! One thing I'm concerned about is that the Schaller that this originally came with (and was obviously routed for) had shorter string lock bolts. Now, I don't think that with the neck angle this has that I'll ever be able to pull back the trem far enough that this is an issue, but you never know. Anyone ever have issues with a route like this? Some more shots of the guitar: Carbon glass epoxy composite fretboard (or whatever the fuck it's called, the parker fretboard with the stainless steel frets): Also, a question about the Buzz Feiten tuning system. Can I just tune this normally? Will it be all fucked up sounding if I just tune it with a regular tuner the way I normally tune? If not can I get it de-Buzz-Feiten-ized? Anyways, this guitar plays fucking amazing. The EMG's have got to go. I got this for a retarded deal and it has a lot of upgrades. And because I know you're all waiting for it: . .. ... .... .... ..... ...... ..... .... ... .. . .. ... .... ..... ...... ..... .... ... .. . OH NO! The tables have turned!
