    Still has a long way to go and I need to make all the finishing, electronic and hardware decisions...but I think it'll be real nice when it's done. :cool2:

    Looks stellar! Love the plain top, and the rosewood... very stripey!

    Nice!
    What's the headstock look like? Did the guitar come like this, or did you strip it down?

    It's got a Gibson headstock (the builder is an ex-Gibson luthier), but it won't have a Gibson logo when it's done. It's brand new...still a lot of work left to do.

    What we are going to do is get some finer sanding done on it, then wet it down a bit to bring out the flame and see if it will tell us what it wants to be.

    My favorite 'bursts are Ice Tea w/ a bit more red and a Brock Burst sort of finish.
