    Been almost a year since I got a guitar. Better step it up! I hope these images work since Photobucket decided to be a dick last year.

    Fancy leather-bound case. I like where this is going!

    With the "others" I currently have on-hand.

    2014 Limited Edition Cardinal Red Sparkle JP13 with aftermarket chrome Dimarzio Dominions. This is one slick guitar and I can't stop staring at the thing every time I put it back in its case.

    There's a bit of personal history behind this guitar actually which is cool (to me, anyway). I took a trip to Vancouver in summer of 2014 and I saw this beauty on the highest rack in the Long & McQuade. Asked about it. Got to play it. Was amazing. But I'd just finished paying off my massive pile of student loans and couldn't justify the $2,800+tax they were asking for it.

    A year later it pops up on Kijiji (Craigslist, essentially). Guy elsewhere in BC was asking WAY too much. So I sat and bided my time as there's no way he'd ever get what he wanted for it.

    Randomly browsed Kijiji the weekend before Xmas and there it was at an actually reasonable price.

    Mine now! It only took 3.5 years to get to me.

    wow, sparking red shoes... I mean, guitar. Does it takes you to Oz to meet the wizard when you play it?

    Nice to see someone find a way to make the chrome hardware “pop” so nicely. Love that color. One of my faves on the JP’s.

    Not a fan of EBMMs but that is a nice finish!

    The color should be called "Dorothy Ruby Red".

    I don't always like sparkle finishes, but when I do...it's that one.
