    Thanks fellas! Couple more pics of this guitar. Forget the dust specs on the headcap.

    Also I haven't updated the info yet, but I decide to go with a Luxe repo bumblebee cap too.

    in response to a question about the finish and if it's see-through or solid:

    Yes it is a see through white. More like 50% opaque. You can see the grain through it, but since mahogany is so homogenous it doesn't jump out enough in a picture like an old fender, but it's the same sorta vibe. Gibsons white is similar. This one I added a tiny bit of yellow/amber to the white to tone it down and give it a bit of vintage flavor. I like how it came out.

    The pickguard material is custom made for me from the guy who invented this style of Tortishell. He just had a stroke and is taking some time off, but I plan on ordering a bunch more as soon as he is able. The stuff is very pricey. Just for a sheet of the thin stuff it costs $75. And that stuff is not right because it's only .035 thick and I need triple that thickness for one of these guards so they have to be custom made for me. I get them oversize, and then I process them down to the final pickguard. It's a chore, but man I love em.

    I hope I'm offering a great value here on my guitars. I put a lot of hard work into them, use top notch materials and I'm asking, price wise, well below what I probably could/should. I'm pricing them at or below many factory guitars. I'm trying to do something for the players out there. I've built hundreds of acoustics that are bought by collectors, and while that is fine I want to put something out there that is going to get played. Hopefully I'm pricing them right so that most people can afford them. Believe me when I tell you all that I'm making VERY little money off these. Truly.

    I'm working a batch of deluxes right now and I have some spots open. The bodies are basically done, but the necks still have to be made. Here are the specs on the deluxes:

    Bombshell deluxe features

    Two piece Honduran mahogany body.
    One piece Honduran mahogany neck.
    Ebony fingerboard with pearl dots.
    1 11/16ths nut width, Bone nut
    Std. Neck carve is medium rounded (ala 1959)
    Ebony peghead overlay with pearl logo.
    Gotoh open back vintage style tuners.
    Fully adjustable tonepros wraparound bridge & locking studs.
    Jason Lollar soapbar P-90 bridge, and neck pickups.
    NOS paper in oil tone capacitors with vintage cloth wiring.
    Full gloss finish. You choose the color. Sunbursts are extra.
    Exotic wood drop top
    Elite arched top hardshell case.
    Two way adjustable truss rod.
    Limited lifetime warranty to original owner.

    Base Price: $1900
    Guitars with humbuckers instead of P90's have a base price of $2000


    So with the above features here are the bodies I have made and will be available Some have humbuckers some have P90's. I'll list the drop top wood and then the pickups they have routed:

    Koa (light figure, great color $50 upcharge): P90's
    Presentation grade flame maple (INSANE flame $100 upcharge): P90's on 3 guitars
    High grade maple (Great flame $75 upcharge): Humbuckers
    Cocobolo rosewood ($150 upcharge): P90's
    All Mahogany: P90's

    Check my website for more info and pictures of my standards. I guarantee you'll not find a better constructed, playing and sounding guitar for these prices!
