Playing for me is all about the music that’s in my head, so I don’t need a PS for that. My main is a Paul’s SE and it already has enough X factor on it. Also, simply owning and seeing my PS in pristine condition makes me happier than playing them. I can’t fight the math.
That actually looks quite cool! Not so much like an LP to my eyes. I think the thin body and fatter bottom would distinguish itself. Perhaps the rounded section could flare out a little more, or have a bit of a gradient as it joins the neck. That might add a bit of character!
The Santana shape...
LOL sure! It’s Aquamarine stain but looks a little green due to the clear coat yellowing a little and the blue fading a little. The inlay is a west street “dragon”. Here’s the only full pic I’ve taken so far, alongside a fellow pernambuco necker. I’ll whisper to the guitar that it’s found a fan! :D
