Steve,
I'm not in the market for another guitar, but they are really nice-looking instruments.

FYI that's a requirement around here - don't let the mods find out you're not looking for another guitar...

Not all of them - they were kind enough to save one just for you, if you're quick enough...

- and it's selling brand-new for $50+ less than the demos; someone's going to get a lot of guitar for the money...

Those MIK guilds do look sweet. I have my eye on a Newark St. Starfire natural finish.

Such a great deal. I'd be a bit angry if I has bought one right before the sale, but the market is in a bit of flux these days. I DO NOT need another guitar.

I used to have an X-175 Manhattan. It was a great guitar, except I couldn’t deal with the super-tall frets.
