    by request here is a picture of the Tor-Tis firestripe guards that area available on the guitars. If you're not familiar with Tor-Tis google it because ti's considerably different than "tortishell" pickguards that are used these days. It's way more realistic I think.

    And the pickguard is still oversize and not totally shaped, beveled, drilled yet.

    Just a quick update. Been working a ton recently, and was neglecting some finishing chores. Here are a couple shots of an Ice Blue custom Bombshell Standard in finish.

    Still have a few that are up for grabs. For more info see Bombshell Guitars (under for sale, but check out the blog too). I'll post completed pictures soon...I promise! This one will be done in a week or so.

    Thanks. And yes pics are needed, and as soon as this batch is done I'm getting a bunch of nice pro pics on the site of a half a dozen or so variations of the Bombshell Standard.

    Cheers

    These look really great - any chance, though, you'll ever do any single cuts?

    Thanks

    For sure. It'll be down the road a little bit though. Maybe next year as I've just started releasing these models and want to get all these smooth and streamlined before expanding the line, but to answer your question. Yes.

    Thanks!

    No it's Honduran, but a really dark dense piece of wood, plus the computer made it look darker than it is...

    And I'm gonna have to try your p90's sometime! I've been using Lollars on everything and they do rock, but it's always nice to try out new things...
