Bird Incoming

Recommended Posts

After just missing two other Birds in the last month, this morning I pulled the trigger on this used 2016 model from Elderly:

The price they were asking is exactly to the dollar how much I have in my "Bird fund" after selling two other guitars, so I took that as a sign from above to buy. If they ship it out tomorrow, I will have this Bird in hand on Wednesday. Here's hoping that it lives up to everything I've heard about the other 2016 models.

"Bird Incoming" : you should brace for impact and have shelter ready. Get all chores done and plenty of supplies in the fridge for the fallout. 2016 feathers are probably still a little damp. Give her time to open up.

Congratulations !!!!!

That's a beautiful one, too! More "cherry" than some. I've played a few standard Birds, and they were fantastic. It is more than just looks on them. Don't let anyone try to convince you otherwise.

It seems like Bird Flu has become an epidemic on this forum of late, but with good reason. Look forward to a review of your new Bird when she arrives congratulations.

If it's as good as mine you will be in bird heaven! Mine is "back from the future", the headstock says 2017. Wonder what yours will say? Enjoy!!

Indeed like Jesse said, it seems to be a nice cherry burst on that one !

Usually HCS are more like honey. Dunno if it is the pics or its true color.

 

Enjoy!

I love a cherry burst Hummingbird (or J45), but I'm guessing it's more of the way the picture was taken than anything. If that's it's true color, I won't be disappointed.

 

Elderly called this morning and the guitar has been "released". Hopefully that means it will ship out today, but sometimes Elderly can take an extra day. Can't wait to get this one!
