** NEW ARRIVAL **
Let me ask you a question: Would you rather drive a Ford Taurus or the Mach 5? My father once told me, "Anyone can drive an automatic, but not everyone can operate a stick." That is why dad got me a stick shift as my first car. Automatic and stick shifts, tremolo versus non-trems. See the correlation?
Just think this through- almost all of the most innovative guitarists in the world prefer the Mach 5, of course. From Duane Eddy to Eddie Van Halen, the tremolo adds the "fifth dimension" now, doesn't it? And, I know what you're thinking- "Why do I want to stick out, why do I wanna buck the establishment?" Well, simply put, you're a guitarist, aren't you? You got that right as soon as you picked up the guitar. To shine, to stick out, to be a rebel without a cause because that is in our DNA.
Someone once wrote: "Style is knowing who you are, what you want and not giving a damn."
"Style," people, and style is bringing your very own originality to the table. 7 billion of us on this planet, so have the courage to be uniquely you. As for this guitar? Well, just check her out. She is clean, wouldn't you say? I know- only the most astute noticed that she has a maple cap board. Lacquer, you say? You betcha and as an added bonus, she has swag in spades. Swag, friends is like getting Kristy Brinkley and Beverly D'Angelo to ride along with you in the American Truckster. I know, I know- you wanna know the weight. Glad you asked; She weighs in at a tidy 8 lbs, 13 oz and for a trem version, that isn't disagreeable.
Like I opened with a Ford Taurus and the Mach 5. Don't know about you folks, but who out there doesn't want a car that can jump over shit and let's not forget those saws that just magically come out the front. Dude, wouldn't you just love to have such a feature in 5 o'clock traffic?
I can see it now on GMA: And to George: Three cars split in half in (fill in your town's name here.) Witnesses say they never seen nothin' like it but hey, that was rock-n-roll. Police say, "No one was hurt, but they may need a shitload of bondo." To be original people is what I'm saying and not going along to get along. Questions? Yes, Donald- "Do I get Trixie with this Mach 5?" Dude, sit down and just chill out- we'll see what we can do. Maybe I can get Ray's sister to play the part, I hear she's a good sport...
