    Got this a few months ago. Someone over at TGP built this one and they did it up right. Just awesome looking mahogany and maple. Chambered body with the whole thing weighing out at 8 lbs. on the nose. Big fat neck, right at .955 @ the 1st fret. No inlays on the board but it does have side markers. Rewind medium output PAF's, Pigtail wraptail/studs, etc. Finished in tru oil.

    The pickups sound absolutely amazing, like they were made for this guitar. All in all, its just a fantastic playing and sounding guitar that will keep up with a historic no problem. Hope you enjoy the pics.

    See pics below. Photojunkit sucks...

    I wish there were more options with fat necks like that. I've all but given up on MIJ stuff because none of them have fat necks. I used to love the trapezoid markers but dot markers or natural wood with side markers makes more sense.

    Awesome looking guitar. I agree that ReWind Medium Outputs are killer. They have so much push and muscle available but have a great woody character to them as well...can't forget about the harmonics too

    Very nice!

    Looks gorgeous with that colour combo and has two features I really like: the wrap-tail and no fretboard markers.

    Fretboard markers are kind of weird. Once you've played guitar for a certain amount of time, they're completely useless. When playing live you're seeing the guitar from directly overhead, and the edge markers are all you need.

    Really sharp!!

    I like the way the no-frills aspect gives it a real "all-about-the-business" look.

    HNGD :cheers2:

    I love the way it looks now but I also think a top only refin in oxblood would look great.

    Love the fat neck and wouldn't argue if it were a little wider than usual also. Great finish...Nice!

    You probably will have a much more real tone with the knife blade bridge out of picture. You have a very interesting and beautiful guitar. Thank you for showing it to us.

    I need to get some good back shots as the mahogany is just beautiful. You can see the wavy sides in this pic.... IMG_20170920_134710949.jpg
