So, it's a new post but not a super new guitar. I've had it a few months. Sorry for the delay, but I figured I should share. I know these aren't for everyone, but I love the look and after trying to find a vintage one and continually striking out, I bit the bullet.

Sweet Goldie! That board looks awesome, although some might not like it if it is a 2 piece. I don't think I could hear a difference, especially since it'd be cranked through a Marshall! Congrats!

Yeah, I don't know how to tell if it's 1- or 2-piece without pulling the nut. I guarantee you can't hear a difference. The only real fear will be if a refret is more difficult...that's a bridge I won't have to cross for quite some time.

That looks fantastic! Thanks for the great pictures.

I would really go for some relic'd hardware though, to give it the complete look.

Nice shag!

Nice guitar, that fretboard is sweet. I missed out on a 2012 R0 plaintop that was as good as they come and had a similar looking board, still kicking myself for that.

Yeah, that's absolutely one of the highlights for me!
