    Thanks for indulging me.

    Sorry if these look flat and artificial; I'm still working on incorporating life-like finishes into the guitars.

    Some day, a life-like bamboo yellow finish.

    Why did you bring back the dial-up mutes?

    For the purists ;) My Gent doesn't have them.

    My old '67 Streamliner/Blackhawk and '62 G6120 had them. They were really an appendage.

    Go with nickle or chrome and it would look great it even looks great with gold. I just happen to be partial to not gold.

    Thanks.

    Meh means I think I can eventually make something better.
    I agree; it looks better with chrome or nickel hardware.

    The little thumbnail makes it look like some inlay is under the strings and I actually think that is a cool idea.

    I like them all but I have always disliked pickguards that cover the F-holes. And we need some single coils as well.
