This is another fine instrument made by @LtDave32 and his wife Anna from their shop Desert Star Guitars.
This is DSG version of a DC Junior ....
Honduran Mahogany body and neck with a Custom Midnight Black Pearl finish.
It plays and sounds magnificent. Anyways I’d rather be playing it than...
Just a question to inspire a conversation. I really enjoyed some of the models that were produced, and not all were Les Pauls.
What models would you be interested in if the Custom Shop were inspired to commit to another run?
Does anyone know if there is a future project in the works?
I got this today and I have to say I am very impressed. The finish is flawless except under the pick guard at the neck joint tenon where it is a little wonky..... the tone is powerful with plenty of clarity. Lots of sustain. A proper SGJr.
As some may know I was the winner of the MLP fundraiser Junior giveaway.
Well I just received the guitar today.
First I would like to thank @admin1 and everyone at MLP for such a fantastic prize.:cheers2:
Now for the guitar. It is obviously not the vintage sunburst single cut Junior that is...
No it’s not about bewbs.
It’s that time of year and the debate I’m having at home is,.. should we get a fake tree or a real tree for Christmas.
Being a traditionalist,... I like the real deal. The journey of finding it,... to the smell of a real tree. I actually enjoy it,... of course the wife...
I have received my Desert Star B Bender yesterday. I have to admit that this thing surpassed all my expectations. This is a pic of @LtDave32 posing with it before he shipped it out.
The guitar is amazing, Dave did a special neck carve as I like them big. I wanted a fat neck like my R7. Big...
I have noticed that they're are random blue highlighted and underlined words throughout the screen, like messages,.and print, and member.... that when pointed over will produce an ad.
Has anyone else noticed this?
Or has this been around and i just noticed it?

The real deal '58 serial 8 6787 Montrose Burst on top.
My CC#28 Montrose #121 on the bottom.
I thought it would be fun to see how close the CC is to the Original it's made to copy
On mine the flame is real close but the color not so much (it could be the lighting and camera of course).
I bought this aged guitar a few years ago and i am really disappointed in the quality of the finish.
Look at the back!........there is a huge hole in the finish right to the wood!!...and along the upper edge,..........how could this pass QC....especially at the Custom Shop.
The neck is...
I have just picked up 1977 Custom, not mint....a little worn....but it is completely original. The very best part of this instrument,.....it's a freak'n tone monster!!...I plug it into my set up and BLAM! I got Paul Kossoff tone blasting at me............AWESOME!..............oh, did i tell you...
Will the distant future end up like THX1138 and Logans Run? Where the legalization of drugs end up being mandatory drug use and retirement is obsolete because no one is aloud to live past 35. Population control and free will outlawed.
I loved these movies as a kid, but that seems to me to more...
I will try to make this short even though its a life long story.
My interest in music started with a childhood friendship around 2nd grade with a friend that went over 25 years. He played drums and myself on guitar, our musical connection was tight from the start. We put together a little band...
