Default The Mailman loves me....pics added

Here I am on Valentines day believing my latest tracking number info that my Emerald X7 is still sitting in customs when there is a knock at the door ! Yes, yes, yes, it is here ! A pleasant surprise for sure. A beautiful blue X7 . I'm still recovering from that nasty knee surgery, so I am not able to play it for much more than 5 minutes at a sitting, but it's easy to tell it's everything that I was hoping for. The 12 fret and slightly larger body are major improvements to my ears. I can't wait to have more play time with it ! Here's to hoping all the rest of the AGFers out there have a great Valentines day too.

Congrats! It is the Emerald I’m gassing for more than any other Emerald (any guitar for that matter). Please post more as you spend more time! Enable me! Support a brother!!

wait.... what? Didn’t you just sell a blue X7?

I'll be patient John. I'll chillax. I know it could be a long while if you're going to bond with that guitar like I think you will.

First of all, congratulations. I look forward to hearing how you like it and hopefully seeing photos of it soon.

Second, did yours perchance ship on Friday? Mine shipped that day and the last tracking was it leaving Heathrow on the 11th...I figured it was still in customs too. Fingers crossed I'll get a nice surprise in the next day or two then as well.

Fantastic! Congratulations... I know you'll enjoy it.

My Valentines Day was nice, but not THAT nice.

I sold my Version 2 last Spring with the hopes of getting the V3. Somehow the money disappeared for a while there. LOL

It left Heathrow on the 6th Wahine. So, any day now !

I'll get pictures as soon as I can get around a bit better.

Pics will happen as soon as we see the sun...it's a pretty dreary wet day for AZ

And i wanted to be clear that the "Mailman" is actually a "Mailwoman" not wanting to start any rumors or anything.

Congrats, John! A very nice surprise on this "day of love."

We are currently in "the Valley of the Sun"... I'll vouch for John's weather report. School policy says we cannot have students in our private vehicles, so my daughter and I delivered guitars to homes for the kids that had to walk home after class. My X10 laughed at the rain.

I'll be looking forward (like the others) to some photos or maybe even a sound clip or twelve.

Hope this new guitar helps with your recuperation!

That blue is stunning for sure congratulations again. I also like what they did with the blue in their latest shipping video. Alistair gives a nice description in the video, worth checking out.
