    Would be the old 1992 G6128T. It has a perfect neck, the tacky massive headstock, loads of bangs and bumps all around (yet the top is very clean), and sounds great as the ceramic filtertron blacksheep of the bunch, especially after the stainless steel Compton bridge replaced the original six saddle Rattle-matic. I also have plenty of black guitars, so artificially adding some variety doesn't ***** my conscious too much.

    EDIT: haha I forgot that a common English idiom uses a certain p-word that can get censored ;)

    Looks way cool. However all I see here is what would happen the first time I stomped on it with my size 13 boot on a dimly lit stage...

    Wow, just had some REALLY cool news.. The original luthier who built Jack White's copper top triple jet (that I'm like..OBSESSED with building..)
    Is..going to build that last Deco guitar I posted up!!
    ..As a present, he's sending me the Gretsch logo he made for JW's original guitar.. He made a duplicate apparently, from the same sheet of pearloid.
    HOW COOL IS THAT! :D

    The Deco guitar design is pretty cool, but I would have chosen sharper horns ... maybe SG style.

    And for sure it needs thumbnail inlays ;)

    It’s funny you should say that, they started pointy but with the lower half, it looked a bit devilish (tail + horns). It was too aggressive a shape for what I had in mind.
    Mind you in bright red, it looked the part :D

    Yeah i know, I always put thumbnails on :D mainly because I was always using the same neck haha

    I’m off to ETSU this week, got invited to see their guitar building facilities. Apparently they have lots of CNC gear and build most of their stuff in house. Should be interesting :)

    Sound post setzer hot rod. full depth. Hot rod wiring but include a buckethead arcade style momentary killswitch. Setzer signature tv Jones at the neck and a classic plus for the bridge. A bigsby with an extra long arm. A Jack plate. All brushed nickel hardware. Anti -freeze green stained body matching falcon style headstock. Possibly a burled top. And have an exact copy with a grey stained top. The same kinda grey they used at the beginning of the burst on the older Duane eddy 6120s. Both With a purple cowboy case.

    The bridge is fine, it's the Bigsby. This Memphis Belle is interesting, but too much magnification on the guitar ... it's hard to identify it ... try a bit smaller version.
