First girl looks a bit like Uma Thurman
Waiting for the day I can take delivery of this
[EDIT] He called.
I might get a close up look at this:
Here is a link to the full review of the Showhorse for anyone who is interested.
Here is a new one.
Solid spruce with butterscotch finish rosewood/maple neck, Bill lawrence pups
That is a sweet looking finish on that one Roman. If there is any way to add a little of that tint to the back of the Non-Reverse Firebird you are doing for me, please do it. Or if you don't, I am sure it will age to get that color over time.
I think that can be managed.
Here's more guitar pics just for the sake of pictures.
sweet, sweet, and sweet. what kind of wood is the first one?
This is TOO SWEET!
Here's a korina double cut, headed down to LA. This is the clients 4th, so I guess you could say he is a repeat customer..
Korina body and neck ( set neck)
Satin open pore finish (combination of oil and lacquer)
Good old fashioned Duncans (think Whitesnake)
Super thick ebony board with no markers except side dots
Dunlap 6100 fretwire with compound radius (12 to 16 ")
Custom made stainless bridge and Tail Piece
I guess you could call it a "superstrat" (sorta)
Enough talk, pics.
love that one !!!!!!!!!
Oh man that one is killer! That's my kind of strat! Two Hums no inlays set neck! Just awesome!
John THAT was originally going to be a seven string, as he got the seven string bug after buying an ibanez. Well after a couple of weeks he never caught on to
how to actually play a 7 string and decided he didn't need two.
So six string it was!
Well! That would've made an awesome seven!! I'm really digging the headstock. I'm gassin for a Rist DC 7.
That is a nice looker Roman. Not overly fancy but with all the right stuff. That dark Korina neck looks really nice back there. Does it have an oil finish?
I love the placement of the volume knob.
Post a picture with the full guitar including the headstock.
Finally, it's good to see you putting up a few posts. It's been too long and we miss you!
Yeah, I pop in now and again. With regards to the guitar, I am very pleased with the simplicity of it. Very clean and uncluttered. The finish is a base coat of tru oil, followed up with a satin rubbed lacquer.
As requested, full frontal.
I agree, that's a beauty.
Here is some commentary I was very pleased by. I am always trying to achieve that vintage vibe, mojo, or what ever else you call it. Here is a clients observations from a guy who owns both.
Here is this one.................
It's amazing how lighting and a few years of fading can change the look of an instrument.
