Custom Order Support Group

Post by s_m_g » Thu Sep 25, 2008 6:20 pm

I know it's stupid but I can't help myself. All the talk of Scott's impending Horizon elsewhere on the forum has got me feeling really impatient about my custom order.

So I invite anyone waiting on their custom to arrive to share their thoughts and desperation here.

Just state your name, model on order, date order was placed, any other specs you'd like to share, then rate out of 10 how bad you want your new guitar right now.

Ok let's kick it off.
Adrian.
Horizon. Neck-thru (alder sides), 5A flamed maple top, 5-pc maple/mahogany neck, maple fretboard, Floyd, one volume, one tone, 3 way switch, EMGs (85/81), no inlays except for ESP logo at 12th fret changed to SMG. See-thru black satin, natural finish on neck. Reverse pointed headstock. Extra body depth as per Kiko sig.
Ordered mid June 08 (yes I've got a way to go).
Anxiety level at about 8/10.

:roll: which is why having so many customs kinda removes the glitter from them. at least for me they stop being special when you start having too many.

Hmmm...never thought about it this way, but I guess that would be true for me too...
After the incoming H I think I may do on more, but that should be it.

My new Horizon will be Custom number three, but the first two were bought second hand. So this will be my first Custom ordered to my specs.

I think three will be enough, but could possibly see myself selling one of the earlier ones for another custom of my own design. I definitely couldn't part with my own custom ordered guitar, that would be too traumatic.

Looking at my first custom, I can't really sell it to anyone unless someone elses name would be Scott and he can relate to my birthday. :-)
