    I missed out on this one on Reverb back in January (it sold in a couple of hours in the very early hours of the morning, if I remember) but found the guy that bought it by posting up on TGP. I started a dialogue with him and let him know I wanted it if/when he ever wanted to offload it. I had almost forgotten about it as it had been a couple of months since we had talked, then out of the blue he offered it up last week. Anyway, it's pink, and Unicorny! Kauer guitars are probably my favorite, with Gretsch a pretty close second, and the Starliner MIGHT be my favorite model of Doug's. They're easily the most comfortable LP style guitars I've ever played. As soon as I saw this one with Dynas, I knew I had to have it one day. Now I'm no huge fan of tension bar Bigsbys, but I can get along with them when necessary. It won't be everyone's bag, but it's sure mine! It sounds SPECTACULAR and plays that way too. Anyway, without further adieu:

    Oh, and if anyone is interested, I'm selling a sonic blue Wildwood Duo Jet to pay for it. One in, one out!

    Very nice, congrats. I've heard nothing but good things about Kauer guitars. Doug used to be on the Luthierist podcast. Good luck with your sale.

    Congratulations on catching a unicorn! Somebody recently asked what our signature guitar would look like...this might be yours. Your Sonic Blue Jet is mine since you posted it.
    I hope somebody loves it as much as I do cuz it’s like ScarJo...way out my league.

    Doug Kauer is making some really great guitars. I have salivated over few myself. Unfortunately, they are out of my league price wise.

    Congrats on your Kauer!

    Thanks guys! It's really an incredible guitar! Doug uses wenge exclusively for fretboards. Really cool grain, and he skirts CITES that way also!

    Congratulations! It’s like it was destiny influenced by a little work on your end. I haven’t heard of Kauer and don’t normally follow expensive builders because it’s way out of my range. That unicorn is beautiful though. The quality easily shows in the photo’s.
