Ah, I am sure enjoying the pictures! Looking at that shiny finish, I can almost smell the Zymol, LOL! :)

I am so happy!

That is too funny you said that. My wife and I were just looking at the pictures I said the same thing! You have quite a collection there. Have fun!

Very beautiful work as usual! Owning a 4003 it looks strange to see 6 tiny strings on that body, but if I were ever to get a RIC 6er, it would have to be one of these!!

Oh, I don't know about that.... I don't think ANYTHING could look prettier than my Purpleburst (which BTW looks even better in "real life" than in photos--the color is so rich that pictures don't do it justice). Still, I think Blueburst was the way to go with this guitar, as it is a color I have wanted for a long, long, time.... I knew it would look great with the white binding and pickguard, too.... And I'm sure it is the ONLY 481 in that color, LOL!

Having a purpleburst and a blueburst is really the way to go.

How do the slant frets feel when you play?

It's very natural to play, and I don't find myself hunting of fluffing at all. It's primarily a lead-type guitar, with a dead flat fretboard (no radius!). I think the slant-fret idea has validity, but was just too radical for most players.
