    So as I have time because of the virus and will be working in my print shop less now for the time being, I put up on eBay some older builds that I will have some extra cash to build another. This will have an extended leg as you might refer to it as.
    Questions for you all because I have an idea of all white with brass trim and maybe green sparkle binding I’m so confused as what to really do.

    Since your kind of builds are so outrangous you always have a free hand for doing whatever you like as long it is tasteful. Trust your insincsts if you want to sell it. If you are doing a built for your own entertainment: Go wild.

    We're in luck. The band just updated their Facebook profile with a high-res photo of Emanuela and this guitar. I zoomed in an it is clearly written 'PureSalem' - the link is below.

    It was pretty lame, like a $35.00 pedal too! I emailed them a couple times, even told them i understand if a mistake was made and they didn't have it......no response.

    It appears to be discontinued. It's the Valiente model. There have been a couple on Reverb, but none at the moment.

    Gibson T tops are a hell of a pickup, and quite different from what you usually use.
