Congratulations. A nice tribute to our boy Vinnie and also the work of Master Luthier Tom Palecki.

Pat,
It looks real good and these guys are pretty good painters too. There are a few other folks on V.V.F.F. who also used this company, a pink and silver one if memory serves me and the paint looked good on that as well. How do you like the way that it plays and sounds?

I spent more time staring at it then actually playing it. I didn't have too much time to tinker with it last night. The tuning was off, so I have to tweek it a little. I noticed the guitar input jack was extremely tight and I have to wiggle the cord to get a good connection. The sound was a little muddy, but I didn't have the chance to really play around with it. Overall it is what I expected. It is not up to the caliber of AZG (Pear), Jackson or Carvin, but it looks nice and I'm sure it plays and sounds OK. I am very happy with the purchase. As Rick had mentioned in his post, it is a tribute to Vinnie, Tom and also one of my best friends Mike Edds. Once I get this guitar broken in, I will write an update.
