A unicorn has found it's way to me

How on earth did this happen?

Very special thanks goes out to Feynman (Mitch) who graciuosly offered me the opportunity. When one of his posts indicated he loved the guitar but was not an electric player, I somewhat jokingly called Dibs. MItch then messaged me and asked if I really wanted it. Of course I did but wasn't really prepared to receive the guitar due to space limitations. He than proceeded to do everything possible to get me this guitar, including an offer to ship it to me and let me try it to decide. It took a while for me to unload my Newport Pro and Superpro to make space and Mitch patiently waited. As soon as those guitars were gone we finished our transaction and the guitar arrived well packed and safe.  Excuse the poor picture I took. The guitar is gorgeous, perfect finish for this model! Have not had much time to play and will need a setup for my preferences. The neck feels slightly larger than the Vintage profile to me and I consider that a plus! The double bound body maked the guitar appear deeper that the Newport I had, but I believe that is an illusion. Shipped with the guitar was a Fackyo truss rod cover.I will not surrender this but also will not use it without approval from the Fackyo board of directors.

Other than board interactions Mitch and I have never spoken or met in person until now. I'm sure everyone who has any personal dealings with Mitch has come to the same conclusion. A really warm,genuine, and generous person. I feel lucky to have this guitar and the opprtunity to know Mitch better!  Will say more about the guitar as I get to know it!!

No Mitch took it off and replaced it with the original and included it in the case. Dont know why he did that

Then I guess you're been denied - lol.

Mitch is the one who had them made for @MCChris and myself, so it was only right that when I sold my Monaco and my SuperPro, I sent it back to him for his (now your) Newport.

Mitch is certainly good people!

The NP90 here (bought from Mitch) is out almost all of the time. Great guitar!

Wait…. So Mitch had two unicorns…? 🦄🦄

The distinguished provenance of the FACKYO* lineage must be carefully preserved.  As the rest of us die off, we need ensure it remains in good hands. 

ArnieZ is a longstanding member of HFC royalty, and he graciously inherited these responsibilities henceforth.

 

I couldn't be happier with its new steward, and also that it will no longer sit here, mocking me in its neglect.  For all of my best intentions, I must admit that I'm just not an electric guitar player.  A hard pill to swallow perhaps, but an honest one, and I swallow.

I have "SA".  It's a wonderful guitar.  I have since put Thorn Staple P-90's in it.  They are fantastic in the guitar.  I'm recording some stuff this Summer with it.  It sounds like the '56 ES-5 Switchmaster that I owned for many years.  Big, bold and cuts beautifully on the top end.  These are such good guitars.  Very unique.

I just got off the phone with Arnie, discussing a plan Mitch put in motion. Time to make the unicorn a little more ornery ...

Nope, sorry, but my pickups don't garner much interest on this forum, and I don't want blur legit marketing/promotional ops when then present themselves!
