I agree, Nick; it was a great feeling. I tried for over twenty years to get my cousin to trade his bolt-on for one of my guitars. When I finally talked him into it, I made the mistake of having someone in Nashville convert it to an all pull guitar. It ended up with aluminum pull rods, which aluminum is near the bottom of the list of metals for expansion and contraction tolerance. When I asked him why he did it, he puffed up and said, "I USE ALUMINUM RODS ON ALL OF MY GUITARS." I just shook my head and thought, "If you don't know any better by now, I won't be the one to bail you out." To make a long story short, I gave the guitar to Terry Crisp and he still has it. I did have tuning problems with my first bolt on when I wasn't in a temperature-controlled environment, but when this clown added the aluminum pull rods; it drove the final nail in the coffin.
