    Got to have multiple instruments for RS because of all the tunings. Two semi-tone difference is enough to through off a good set up.

    By now they should be calling you over for a beer whenever they get in some new stuff.

    I don't use them for RS. I keep all of my LP's in Standard. The last time I detuned for a song was when I covered Brown Sugar about a decade or more ago.

    BTW, the guitar I traded for it was sold sight unseen less than 5 minutes after the trade.

    Oh oh, there is more to the story. What did you trade in?

    Wow, didn't know double necks moved that fast. Don't see them used much.

    I was lucky. Guy was in an 80's band, and guess what song he wanted to play on it? "Wanted Dead or Alive". He special ordered it from Utah before I got out of sight! I didn't have time to change my mind. The ink wasn't dry on the sheet where I signed to turn over custody. No photos got taken, much less uploaded.

    Not that anyone cared, but Richie actually played mine a looooooong time ago. This was before I thought to carry a Sharpie (I don't even know if they were around). Bon Jovi was going to do a gig to help raise $$ for our local hospital, and my mother in law was in charge of the entertainment. Richie and Jon both had summer camps in our town. Richie didn't have his full rig and "Wanted Dead or Alive" was still playing on FM radio. I loaned him my guitar. My wife said, "Are you sure? That's your favorite acoustic." Yeah, it was like that. I said, "I'm sure he'll return it." LOL

    It was enough of a thrill for me to hang out and get some Polaroids with the band.
