Default NGD! Emerald X-7 (Now with pics!)

The Emerald X-7 I ordered back in February arrived today but since it's for my birthday (this Sunday) I'm not opening it until then.

Thanks go out to Sean for being easy to work with and getting the guitar to me right on schedule.

So here's the first pic of it, more to follow after I open it.



ETA - Well it's my birthday now so I've finally opened it up and here she is!

I would have already opened it if it weren't a birthday present. I actually had them slow down my order to get it on schedule and not too early. I know, crazy.

Matt;

You really know how to celebrate a birthday--got the gift thing down. In the meantime, happy un-birthday.

Self-control. It's easy when you've been waiting 4 months, what's a few more days?

As much as I'd want to play it, I'm an 'anticipation junkie' so I like the thrill of the wait no matter what it is, so I'm with you...I could and would endure the wait.

That ain't right!

Congratulations and Happy Birthday, Matt! Well, you can read the "Congratulations" part right now, but don't read the "Happy Birthday" part until Sunday.

I trust you will find it worth the delayed gratification. (I think I have shown here that I am all about the immediate gratification. ) My wife asked for a concert this morning... I took the X7 off its stand and brought it into the living room (instead of playing in my guitar room) - just a delightful guitar to hold and play. Just mentioning that so you have something to think about for the next 3 days.

Looking forward to the "unveiling." (Unboxing?)

Thumbs up

Happy Birthday -3! Same day as my son's birthday. Glad your Emerald made it so quickly. Please document the unboxing!!!

I ordered an x7 on Nov. 1 (7 months ago); it missed my April birthday, now fingers crossed for Fathers Day. Hoping Sean and Alistair are working it. Your order did a lap around mine...
