When I first saw the post I have to admit I thought it was a Jeff Beck oxblood guitar. I'm not familiar with these attenuators but I also love my rockcrusher recording for taming my Friedman smallbox at home. It's a great time to be a guitar player.
That is a nice weight. My 53/57 is 9 lb even but feels like a 8.5 historic. I have noticed that 50's guitars FEEL lighter than their weight. I have bonded with mine like no other guitar I have owned. If you get a good one they are holy grail guitars.
I meant was it a one, two or three piece top, flame etc. Kim usually takes pictures of his work and you could ask him to send them if you are interested.
I'm glad it stayed a goldtop and Kim's work is top notch. Looking forward to seeing more pictures.:cheers:
