    So I thought it would be cool to show off my new private stock from my Photoshop Concept throughout the build process to final photos.

    I want to thank Doug D and Bo H at Wild West Guitars for helping me. WildWestGuitars.com is awesome!

    First photo is another PS which had the top grain I liked and used photoshop to superimpose black pickups, bridge, etc.

    This is the wood selection from the factory via Doug D and email.

    Neck blanks to choose from... went with #3

    This is the first time I saw the guitar on the Private Stock Friday thread.

    Here is the top and swamp ash back sanded and first glimpse of the flame maple neck.

    First look at headstock and inlay before clear coat.

    Freshly stained top and back looking good!

    Back was originally spec'd as white with dark grain filler but changed it... I liked it but like final look better.

    Headstock with clear and check out that Paua inlays.

    I just got the guitar 2 days ago and here it is! I'm can't stop looking at it.... Much brighter than my other PS Custom 24 which has Madagascar Rosewood fingerboard and mahogany neck.

    Well done. Excellent choices, and I love the dark back. Very ghostly.
