Hey Jon...

I played my strat this weekend and it was awesome! Great tone, great action, great neck, and a great set-up. Overall a really sweet playing guitar. I got several comments from the audience about my unique and different sound, but the best was when Big J our bass player said, "...I was really nervous about that strat because I don't really like the way your other one sounds, but you've got a real winner with that guitar." That made me feel great. When you have a tool like that, it makes the job you do much easier, and makes it more enjoyable to play, and you know when you know you sound good you play even better across the board, and that was evident this weekend.

Who knows what will be next for "Goldy" but I really think there's no need for me to take her or any other guitar anywhere else for any reason.

Thanks for all your advice, and for a great set-up!

I am the owner of the 1st (ser# VV2007001). Jon has hand-crafted a
wonderful guitar. The sustain is great, due to the nice mohagany body.
The DiMarzio PAF's really help recreate the familiar sound (from a Blue
Oyster Cult perspective) of Buck Dharma. The neck is very playable,
especially from the perspective of how the guitar body sits when
strapped on. I found that it seems to create a feeling of being able to
easily move your hand up the fretboard to reach those high "Dharma"
notes. Other fine details and hardware accessories really adds a great
touch to this legendary look.

So, if you're a BOC fan or someone looking for something a bit different
for a new guitar, why not have Jon hand-craft you this beauty."
