    Beautiful! I made the right move going with Sully, three exclamation points on that above!
    Sully, are you giving that Raven's finish a name?
    That 71 Proto looks solid, but the Aero headstock definitely fits it much, much better.

    Calling it shipwreck, for lack of a better term. It's just trans blue shot over wood with a lot of character. In order to get that look, you've gotta have that wood combo. It's insane in person and changes colors in different lighting. Sometimes it looks like stone.

    The proto sat for about 8 months before deciding to finish it. There have been a bunch built after that one, and they all have the proper Aero headstock on it. To my eyes, it gives it a more retro look and it brings the look of the guitar closer (from a visual standpoint) to a Les Paul, which I don't want to do. Someone told me it looks like a '71 from '64, which sums it up nicely. I think the Aero head flows with the body much better. I remember designing that headstock in 2003 and I never got around to putting it on a guitar until 2010 or so. Glad I did!

    While we're on the subject, here's a teaser of something that will be at NAMM. :)

    Any way you cut it, "shipwreck" looks awesome. I'll have to take your word about how it changes in person, but wish I didn't have to.
    Definitely a fan of the Aero headstock though. And the 6-in-line too. Is that the quilted transblack 71? Looks like it'll be another killer. Say what you will about awesome unique finishes of all types, there's always room for trans-black on a solid figure.
    Also, are those wood pickup rings and dome knobs on the koa 71? If so, can we get another pic?

    Judas Priest!

    *Note- "Judas Priest" is actually something that old dudes used to say to express how sexy, crazy, or otherwise bad-ass something was. :erk:

    Unreal how gorgeous those two are. :yum:

    Thanks man!

    Yep, they're rosewood rings and knobs. The owner suggested it, and I think it came out nicely!

    I definitely agree on that, that's a classy move right there.

    If any of you will be at NAMM this year, stop by the Ormsby Guitars booth - Hall D, booth 3296. I'll be there with Perry and these '71s:

    Neither of the black ones are for sale, but of course, orders can be taken for them. The blue and the red ones are available at this time. Get in touch if interested!

    Sully fails to point out the fact that this is the carved top version of the '71. Look at that!!!!!!

    I so want to play that!!!

    More progress pix - I think it's pretty obvious that I'm a fan of flake paint jobs. :)

    Done and shipped to its owner. The plan is to discontinue this model after I finish the last two of them.
