I have nothing to say other than I really hope that one of those guitars is mine. I paid him a down payment to get her started of $1700 in Feb '09 and was told 6 months but always told him not to stress on my build. It was painted and ready for clearcoat in June of '09 and then in Dec '09 he apologized for his illness that put it him out several months and told me that it should be a couple more months. Im stoked to finally get it. Its still my dream guitar. But he knows I have my Custom ESPs to get me by and Im cool with waiting. Glad to hear this. From the pics I got last year it looks to be the most beautiful flame maple top I have ever seen and with the most beautiful Macassar ebony fretboard and yummy maple binding ever!
