    Well I'm a very happy boy with this awesome plain top '58 that Mark from Mark's Guitar Loft sent me.

    This is an '09 weighing in at 9.0lbs with the 50th Anniversary changes. I love the neck on this guitar!

    The fretboard is Madagascar Rosewood.

    This guitar has a huge sound to it.

    Mark was excellent to deal with, great prices and man does he know how to pack a guitar for shipping.

    Here's a few pics...

    Busted!

    I used some Virtuoso to remove some of the VOS gunk.

    :lol:

    I think I'll have to try and get Virtuoso direct, because I haven't found a source in the UK.

    It may be just the lighting/camera angle etc, but the first pics simply don't do her lovely colour justice. :)

    I ordered the polish direct from Virtuoso.

    Bourbon Burst is definately a chameleon when it comes to changing colour in different lighting!
