    After a fantastic trip to the factory two weeks ago, all I have are these pictures. I keep looking at them, like they're of a lost loved one. One day they will be a guitar, but for now, I have these pics...

    I swear that first shot shows some kind of alien musician's head. Maybe from Quilt-o-tron.

    The crazy part was it was the first top I looked at, Paul just knew when he laid them out. I literally could not have gotten a better top.

    The second thing I keep thinking about is that Brazzy neck, it was almost red with some crazy figuring.

    Custom 24
    Brazzy neck
    Korina body
    Ebony fretboard
    Brazzy veneer
    85/15s
    All black hardware
    "Like a blue" top

    That's all I can say at this time :)

    That top is smoking gorgeous! When I did my build, the top I ended up with was the second one I pulled off the shelf. I was pretty sold, but I kept looking. I think Brian knew I was going to pick it before I did.

    Awesome top. Just curious about the Korina for the body. Is it going to be stained or are you sticking with a natural finish?

    What kind of birds?
