I'll be curious to see what a mahogany model weighs in at.

I expect it will be pretty light, relatively speaking, at least pre-Bigsby.

There is a lot of contouring with all of my body styles, despite the "slabby" look.

I've been busy finishing up a bunch of builds.

At times I feel like Dr. Finklestein.

Another shot from Joe Sanders' visit, this time with the red Fireluxe NR.

This guitar is currently fitted with Fralin high-output humbuckers and coil splitting Bourns 500K volume and tone pots.

It's possible this might be the coolest picture ever.

I've known these two guys since...forever.

This is the first time we have hung out and jammed.

Just one of those things.

I know some folks were losing sleep over the seeming lack of basses in my current production run.

Wink

Have no fear, another first is here.

Satin white with matching neck and headstock face and faux binding on the body.

I'm looking forward to the Orlando International Guitar and Music Expo this weekend.

I'll be showing eight guitars and two basses.

Thanks, it was a great show!

I sold a 32" scale Primaluxe and got a ton of positive feedback on my new guitar builds.

I'll post up pics soon.

In the meantime, I'm setting up a clear Primaluxe pickguard with the new Wilson Van graphic.

It should be a great show tonight!
