I've always loved those Orange J9's but that Sparkle Blue one has captured my heart.

J9, Squint is tied up right now on a project, I will let him know about your great find, that was a steal my friend, but hey don't feel quilty it happens to the best, as for a pick-guard he might have an original one as I remember he swapped one out for a custom piece he made or had made can't remember for the life of me, but you know what they say it dont mean a thing with-out pictures so put them up baby, so we can all drool over your great find and only lots of pictures will make up for not posting them sooner than later.louis

Hey Steelmanjim, I have always said Mike pays attention to most of our needs and has gone beyond what some other Customer Service Reps from other Makers would have, over the years I have seen Mike help lots of lost souls looking for warranty work or parts, and when I had problems with my Rover he was right there and even more so, so I agree we need to take our collective hats off and give a HUGH thanks for  Mike and all the hard work he does for us and the forum, and Mike at least be greatful that your first name isn't Stacy or else they would be sending you flowers and candy and asking you out (sorry deltacaster couldn't help myself[:o)] ).louis
