    Thanks for the complement!

    Really came out great, exceeded expectations. Vintagey top, lots of cross grain and flecks, two distinct shades of green with bits of natural wood tones peeking through.

    With the Amber knobs to also pull out the browns, and the "Glow" finish sanded to a lighter set of tones in the middle, makes for a very classy vintage looking guitar despite the more modern color.

    My masterpiece!! ;)

    OK...no doubt... the quilted cavity covers are the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. They pop against the less exciting back ...DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Beautiful!! Love the top, the color (Faded Aquamarine?), and the inlays.

    Do you have another pic showing the whole neck, of the inlays?

    The colour is Bahamian Blue - it preceded the set of 5 that included 3683 up above.
    I do have a picture of the whole neck, but not a before - please don't tell anyone I broke the thread guideline.
