    I'll update with pictures once they all arrive but because of my work schedule, that most likely won't happen until the weekend..

    The Giannini is a great price, the Greco is just plain awesome. You're gonna need some sorta special travel insurance; and hope there are no such thing as guitar pirates in the rolling hills of Tennessee. You rent a truck with a speed governor and you'll be an easy target!

    Not yet, still the low 180s. When people hear that, they look at me like I'm crazy. And they're probably right...:(

    That is a look of jealousy. Don’t fool yourself.

    I'll be expecting some of you guys to ride shotgun for the trip north. Maybe not for the entire journey, but for the parts of it that travel through your locale. When I finally arrive up there, @Lamf77 and @pirate19 are going to be plenty busy unboxing and reinstalling wall hangers and reassembling racks. I might need @uwmcscott to come down to spell them....

    Nice! I thought about all 3 of those, and had to work hard to talk myself out of the Greco - what a beauty! Congratulations!

    Oh, and send me the travel itinerary, and I'll help ensure most of them make it to your destination.

    Thanks and FWIW, another $100 b-stock Taurus II MN NA went up today and the seller of that Greco is taunting me with a Tokai Explorer (but not at the listed price):

    That Explorer is gorgeous. I only have 1 Explorer, and it taught me that's not nearly my favorite body shape. I can't part with it simply because it's the most beautiful spalted maple top I've ever seen. The Tokai is more special though, you should talk him down. My Tokai's are among my most treasured guitars. Fantastic Japanese craftsmanship there!

    Back to the Chicago area (technically southern WI but just north of the IL border), I've finally had it with the relentless heat and humidity of south FL. The only thing keeping me here is my business and that's listed with a broker. As I've posted in another thread, I'd rather live where the weather is intolerable three months out of the year than a place where I find it intolerable nine months out of the year...

    That's what keeps me from going back to the Midwest...

    Although it was more like 6 months. (Nov-Apr)

    I may have mentioned earlier....you can pay me in Portillo's Beef Sandwiches....however, due to your recent exponential buying spree, the price has gone up...you will need to include fries and a cold beverages of my choosing.
