I won? Me? *I* won something?!?

Bought a Lynx AES router from Bayview Pro Audio a few weeks ago (yes, good service, quick ship, good price, etc.).

Today, I get an e-mail that says "Sweepstakes Winner" on it. I'm just about to dump it until I see "Bayview Pro Audio" on it. So, I look to see what they're trying to sell me...

To my surprise, they're NOT trying to sell me anything - I actually won a G&L Tribute Legacy Premium (guitar). AND got a congratulatory call from the owner of the company to boot!

At the time, I didn't even KNOW that there was any sweepstakes going on...

I know it's (a guitar) not really as "slutzy" as we're used to, but hey - I play, it's a good thing. Couldn't have happened at a better time either - I'm try to shed some of my Metal machines (Ibanez 7-string beasts) in favor of getting back to the "roots" a bit lately. This is just what the doctor ordered.

Hey, that´s a really nice story, man!

Cocongratulations

Guess that could be a good guitar, let us know if it´s a thriller.

The thing came in yesterday (I'll post pics at some point soon).

I have to say - This is the "budget" G&L, but it plays amazingly well - and I haven't even set it up yet. It's just the factory setup. Came in the box, IN TUNE (hey, it was in tune when I got it...), and the action is near perfect.

On top of that, on a sheer "vanity" factor, it has to be the classiest looking Strat-style guitar I've ever seen. When they asked me about what finish I'd like, pickguard, etc., I had to just picture it. Know, I just want to takes pictures of it. She's a hottie!
