    ... and with the stained cover:

    The natural curly maple one is a cleaner and more seamless look. The stained one is a more typical flashy (tacky?) PS style, pretty cool either way.

    NGD thread for the CU24-08 in NL coming soon.

    Not gonna lie - These pics haunt me! Killer looking guitar and TRC! Love the contrast with the nattie flame maple fretboard.

    Reverb shows a new CL Beach Fade run, but Ebony boards :eek:

    Gotta say I prefer the maple boards :)

    Turns out wood tuner buttons made for Gotoh 510/301 fit Phase III tuners and I happen to have two sets left...
    I strongly suspect I'll be making stained buttons and matching back plates in the near future :)
