    Loving the enigmatic style.  Allows the mind to wander, speculating as to the treasures that may await...

    @JerkMoans I initially read 'stunning selection' as 'stunning erection'. :)

    The Nautilus is similar to one I owned, and I have to say they're spectacularly good, and a good price too.

    I would love to have kept mine, and it was only my obsession for Patrick James Eggle guitars that led me to sell it.

    In ignorance ,can I ask what makes an Orca 59 different from an Orca ? Is it just the Pickups and neck profile ?

    They have a thicker body as well, making them more LP than PRS in terms of body width

    I believe the scale is also 25” on the regular orca.

    I’m well convinced a Bartlett would be my ideal Les Paul equivalent. Wish I was in the right country!!
