Thanks for posting the Video Dan. :thumb: :applause:

Nicky Moroch looks like he can sure play. What amp was used (lloks like Tech 21 from what I could see but in reality I am only guessing.

The Paragon horn reminds me of my Guild Bluesbirds.

Great looking guitars. :thumb:

Cheers, Rudi

The amp is my JTM45 1x12 combo. I built it with all NOS parts and tubes. Its really a killer amp. I have dubbed it "The Closer" for obvious reasons. :thumb:

It's hard for me to watch this. All these tools, all that craftmanship going to waste. Why can't you use the same good materials the REAL builders use? What? No baked maple? No richlite? I don't remember seeing chambering of the bodies either, I guess your wood is not even heavy enough?!?
Pity...

Photos and vids are coming. :thumb: I am still recovering and playing catch up from the Guitar show this past weekend. It came out great as well!!! No Lance Keltner vid but I will do one. Come to think of it, I may do an A/B vid of the 2 guitars so you all can hear the difference between the two guitars. Lots of pics to come too.

Ha, I guess I shared too soon. The vids are being pulled today for edits and whatnot. The JR vid also sounded amazing but had the same name snag as well. They will be back up before you know it.
