    WOW! I mean WOW! I never say this but...OMG! She is a thing of beauty man! That color, the finish, the binding peeking around the edge the whole flippin thing is extraordinary! The only down side is, as soon as I post this I am going to start my morning practice. The poor grey/black SE24 just dies a little more every time I lay eyes on this creamsickle of my dreams! Poor thing, she just can't hang with this hotness! So stoked for ya man! I know it's gotta be awesome knowing it's a little closer to the ride home! Until then keep em coming! I'll be over here living vicariously through you!

    Yes, it is coming along really nice, Shawn. Not wishing to undermine everybody else's part in this but I was particularly impressed with the guy who did the burst. A real treat to watch. Well I am enjoying all.

    So what happens when it is finished? Is it tea and cakes for everyone or will you just tuck it under your arm and leave sans ceremony?

    Paul back in the mix. This time he's writing the "Employee Guitar" inscription on the back of the headstock.

    Paul signed the guitar today, now it needs another pass of clear over the signature and then on to wet sanding.
