I have been exchanging emails over the past year with someone who has a passion for recording and guitar (clearly a person of exceptional refinement).
He ordered a custom Larry Carlton Signature ES-335 which arrived at Long and McQuade this week. He was told 4-5 months, but it arrived in just over 8 weeks. The guitar is no. 41 of the pilot run of 50, hand made in the custom shop.
I am going to meet with him for lunch over the next few weeks. I will try to convince him that he should store the instrument in my secured recording studio. Too risky for him to keep a guitar like that at his home!
