As my kid would say - "epic fail Dad" trying to upload pics. I'll give it another shot later tonight.

Any hints for posting images directly into this forum using mediafire as the pic host site?

I copied and paste URL link to mediafire image file in-between the [IMG] brackets but no luck - am I not linking to correct URl?

Congrats!! I think that's just amazing. For that price you can't go wrong! A warmoth parts with those specs would put you much further over!

CONGRATS!!

I hope you don't get the *disease*. "wow, look what I put together, I bet my NEXT ONE will be even better".

I've been oggling more Warmoth builds despite having a new guitar just a month or two away. Think 80s Mody with all pickups closer to the bridge!

Well, if I get the "desease" again....(I've have bought and unfortunatly sold numerous guitars over the years....wish I had them all now), I'll just have to suffer! I'm at my spending limit and with the guitars I have now, I'll be fine.
Vantage, 2HB, split coils, buffer.
Schecter C1+ Diamond series, set neck, 3 super 2's, coil splits, buffer, OBEL.
AND SOON: Carvin!
They Vantage is the only one I've had for many years and would never let go. The Schecter is only a couple of years old...great guitar! Especially Jerryised! I've had everything from a '57 Strat to '73 ES335 and a quite a few in between, but for one reason or another (usually money related) sold them all with a lot of regrets. At least I kept the Vantage lol.
Yea, you Bobby players sure like his guitars too. I know. I have always loved his style and had pretty much nailed it quite a few years ago. I've been doin the Jerry thing too for about 40 yrs. It's hard to find a good Bobby player. I've been jammin with a very good guitar player, but he just can't get it....so far.

That's a beautiful guitar, I saw that on craigslist (also from the philly area) , if I never bought mine I would have beat you to that one! :lol: I'll have my whole new rig HOPEFULLY by thursday if everything ships on time, I really hope it does! I have a gig friday!

I also saw a Groove Tube trio on craigslist,if I had 800$ to burn, I'd buy that one fast. I'm really starting to like rack mounted gear..
