    Maybe it will even help @sergiodeblanc come to terms with the blueness of the case.

    Cloudzilla in a blue sky...

    Hey, it's been a minute since I updated this, a bunch of sh!t happened that kinda turned my life upside down but I wanted to give y'all a taste of what's been going on.


    First, my super-homie Shawn rolled into Chicago and bestowed upon me a bunch of gifts, the one most relevant to this thread is this:

    How rad is that? My lil' dude has himself a personalized backplate. Thank you, Shawn!


    Second, I wasn't really gettin' on with the 53/10 in the neck position for this particular guitar. After a bunch of deliberation and oh-so-very scientific research I decided it was time to throw a 57/08 in there. Since this was the first time I had the strings off and was able to peek in the pickup cavities I figured I'd snap a pic:

    No, not that one. That's where I hide my weed.

    Yeah, this one. I tried putting it in the MODCAT decoder but I must've broken it. No idea what any of that means.

    I tried to poke around and see if I could see any sunken paint lines to deduce if this has a Sapele top on it but... It's a little new for that.

    That is pretty Friggin' cool!

    Is that a remnant of blue dye/paint there at the end of the fretboard?? Hmmm...

    Let's hope he becomes an accountant like his mother. There are more guitars in it. ;)

    My vote is for black hardware with ivory tuning buttons and black brushed pickup covers with silver screws. I think that would look nice.
