    I like how you build your guitars. What is the thickness of the veneer on the sides? Is it strong enough?

    Ha, the return of the "Deep Ocean" model, with its three round "bubble" soundholes... :D:cool:

    I just imagine her in "Sparkle Ocean Burst" or "Deep Abyssal Blue Metallic" or "Wave Crest Adriatic Blue" or... OK.:confused:

    Good work, as usual... ;)

    A+!

    Just want to say, I love your stuff @brianr ! Makes me think "Gretsch re-imagined by Salvador Dali." Very cool.
