    Cheer you up? The fact you have bought what a load of people say is an absolutely awesome guitar, and that it is but a few days away from your fingers of fury should be enough to put the smile of the gods on your face!

    It's that 'few days' detail that depresses me.

    If it were anything else, I wouldn't mind waiting, but I wanted a really nice guitar for my first seven. I can almost taste it, it's so bad!

    Maybe if I eat a lot, get drunk, and make sex, as per CrushingAnvil's suggestion, I can vomit, pass out, and wake up when the UPS truck arrives. Timing is everything. :lol:

    The only truly metal way to receive a truly metal guitar.

    I say do it. Jeff would be proud

    For teh extra br00talz, I won't shower, shave, or cut my toenails until it arrives. I guess I wouldn't be doing that anyway if I was passed out in a pool of sandwich puke.

    Agree with all of the above.

    And get your knob pierced while you're at it.

    It's not difficult, although I hate feeling grimy and would regret it later on when my bedsheets feel like grease and dirt. Of course, I could sleep outside to avoid that problem...

    Hell, scrap all that. Since I finally got the Loomis out of the way, I can start thinking about the Agile I've been gassing for. I'm thinking the Harm 1 in cherry, or, if I can afford it, a badass custom 335 style thing (I think the model designation is 'AS').

    Well, when i was waiting for my first seven, i took a six and tuned it like the bottom 6 strings of a seven, to get used to the scale patterns etc, and so i could adjust to it quicker when i got it!

    If you want to be really metal, start a vigil near your door, you will need:

    1-Many: King Diamond or Mercyfull fate Album, as the passing of the metal of the 6string world, and because it kicks ass.

    1-Many: 7string tinged albums, to anticipate the passing of the new, Firesoul on repeat, or nevermore worship (the latter probably being more adeptly themed).

    1-Many: Symbol of metal (could be a manowar album, or an actual loincloth used by manowar, or you could strip half naked and oil up your upper body, all are acceptable, in fact, many things are acceptable, creativity is king) to pray to and request that your tools for the furthering of your religion will arrive with the speed of the metal gods

    1-Lots: Candles, implements of fire, better still, one big huge fire, or several, to keep the light burning and so you can spot the delivery guy for miles

    1: Poster of Jeff Loomis, for extra points, Jeff Loomis in a loin cloth holding a sword smiting a dragon.

    1: Gong, Large, actually make that ridiculously large, to only be sounded when the object of metal conquest arrives, in order to signal to other brethren in the area, and as a statement of intent to non believers

    You guys are a riot. No Jeff Loomis posters here. However, I 'acquired' (meaning ripped off a wall at a truck stop) a big Bootsy Collins poster when I was in the Netherlands recently. That will go into the picstory.

    I'd love to see the look on the delivery man's face when a haggard, reeking, naked, oiled up guy answers the door to sign for the guitar. :lol:

    Yeah, you'll be shredding on that one. A grand is reasonable for that piece of machinery.
