Been out of the game for awhile but jumped back in a big way and grabbed #3 from Wildwood (Thanks, Lance!). #9 had a really nice top as well but this one was closer to Mike's 'Burst in look, in my opinion. Dave's Guitar has #2 and it's a very cool top and color but again, didn't resemble as much to McCready's burst as #3. Hope to receive it in a few days and provide a tone report. Many of you guys know I'm a Pearl Jam nut and Mike McCready was pretty much the reason why I picked up guitar and started playing in 1992. Since then have played lead in number of bands including a Pearl Jam Tribute band in the 2000's, haha... at any rate. Looking forward to this guitar in a big way!

Here is something interesting I just noticed while looking at this guitar. Not all McCready's have the same wear spot directly above the pickguard, between the pickups.

I will have good pics soon! All I've done so far is a few phone pics at the shop when I picked it up.
