    Only you! Yep - I have a Cloud being built. It’s one of those guitars you couldn’t even think of actually owning.......until you do! Should have it in about a month and a half....! Super excited.

    Yes. White n gold baby! I am NOT doing his symbol anywhere on the guitar though. Doesn’t seem right.

    I was
    Originally going to guess custom shop maton. But there is something quite cool about the white guitar.

    Will the fretboard be white and, if so, what will it be made of?

    Wow! Not surprising in a way based on some exchanges we've had.

    Calling Louis Vuitton...

    What do you plan to use for fret markers, if anything?

    I think just black dots, like the original in Purple Rain.

    When I was in Marine Corp boot camp your time is scheduled by the DI 24/7 but a night or two before graduation they marched us to the base theater. No choice it was purple rain. Never heard of Prince before that had to sit completely still and quiet but it was a great movie. I wasn’t something I would have watched had I not been marched there but after three months of training and isolation from the outside world, it was incredible. I would love that guitar myself. Good memories.
