    I dig it. Kind of reminds me of the Gibby buckethead model, minus all the stupid ishit

    I don't know. The original owner/builder was cgharrison from TGP if that helps. He sold it to Troy(guitaraddict}, Troy sold it to Bob(Caretaker), and Bob sold it to me.

    I could swear I saw this on Craigslist in LA and I debated too long and it was gone.

    I can say from experience that this guitar is magnificent. One of the best necks I`ve ever played. I actually miss it.
    I only sold it because I am not a big wraptail fan but I know Fred is.
    I may own it again someday....you never know.

    Yes, I'm a huge wraptail fan. I don't know what I like better...the zebras or double blacks. Must be because I'm use to the double blacks that the Oxbloods have. I've had 6 of those and will have another some day....

    That’s one hell of a lineage.

    The only two people who will ever own this guitar will either be me or you Bob. If this had a bridge, you would have never sold it lol.

    The neck is incredible. Pretty damn big @ .950, but oh so comfortable to play. Hands down one of the best necks I've ever had the privilege to play. Great looking rosewood fingerboard too.

    I think it's time to turn the Marshall on...

    So you don't know who made this?
    I'm considering doing a PrecisionGuitar kit, wonder if this is from them?

    What is the scoop on that case? Haven't seen one like it that I can recall.

    The wood came from Fast Guitars. The builder is from TGP. It's not a Precision guitar kit...

    That's a older Pro Form case. I bought it for my R7. Not a cheap case by any means lol.

    Burst or oxblood. What say ye?

    Everything will get stripped and I will have it reshot in nitro. Top only color change. I think the color on back is good to go.
