    I love these things. I point out, however, that I might have missed the new postings as they were not in the threads to which I subscribed to keep my ear to the ground.

    Tight, how could you not love Surf Green?!

    a couple more. You can see the rest of the pics on my site in the gallery page. When the pages turn if you click on the picture a larger higher res pic will come up. Hope you guys dig it! I still working on the color my camera takes. The colors look more vivid on this than they really are... it's more of a subdued yellow.

    Thanks Roman. I take that as a huge compliment because a: It's coming from an awesomely talented builder, and b: that's exactly what I was shooting for.

    Got a few questions about leather strap button washers and what the heck I'm taking about. Here is a pic to explain. Big thanks to Bob Schell at Brookwood leather for the help with edumacatin' me on how to make them. Everyone check out his awesome straps. SWEET straps handmade just for you at a more than reasonable price. Tell him John Mayes sent ya.

    Guitar weighs 6.9lbs without bridge or strings (add a few ounces in there)

    Also forgot to mention in the title that this is serial number 001 for bombshell guitars! Could be a collectors item one day.

    Surf Green is not the first thing that comes to mind as a Doublecut Junior color, but it sure does work!

    Beautiful. Great job. What kind of grain filler did you use? I'm about to try TV Yellow on my Special build.
