    It has a Guild vibe going on, and that’s not a bad thing. Reminds me of my old Starfire II

    The pickup options are:

    Tvjones custom T-armond
    Nocturne Roostertrons bt Tvjones
    (a raybutts filtertron in a Dynasonic cover and classic filtertron base plate)

    The Body and neck are honduran mahogany in either ambered clear or vintage cherry clear nitro, and the tops are ancient sinker redwood, and you can decide if you want ambered clear nitro or a particular stain like the black ink first model.

    you can also opt for non bigsby

    Please show me finish pics of the Mary Kaye when it's done. I've got a spare kidney with limited mileage left on it.

    you tell me what color, not a prob but how we do it, is how we do it. Semi transparent in the very middle of the guitar that peekaboos the wood grain but no where else on the top.. back is translucent. Unless you want all amber nitro clear, but thats a little more cost wise.

    The Mary K finish is almost built, the binding will be pearl. Tortoise seemed too abrupt w the transp. black sides and back. Headstock will be reverse of this more or less w the mary kay finish. Pics soon.

    OK, I'm making a list of things to sell. The kidney's not going to raise enough $$$ because it's out of use-by date.
