Well, I just read through this thread AGAIN (@RickP
fault for linking it from another thread), and am amazed at the wood on display here! Wish I could sit down with each and every one of these beauties!! I also have realized that I have not added my treasure to this thread, so here is the fabulous "Hoorman Gitfiddle", a 2021 McCarty 594 HBII!!!
<WARNING: This same material was posted in another thread
about McCartys, but this guitar certainly belongs here as well!>

I received this on Feb 10, 2021 brand new (build date of Jan 15, 2021) and have played somewhere in the range of 2,000 - 2,500 hours on it as of Jan '23! It is my daily player and although I LOVE my CU24's, for the moment this one wins based on lightness and tone match for my current material!! A wonderful sounding guitar, eminently playable and easy on the eyes!!!
If anybody ever has any black hardware (tuners, bridge/saddle, 58/15 LT pups, Ebony pup rings - crazy parts is out and can't say when available again, others I have found seem over priced) to fit this guitar, I am interested!
EDIT: BTW, this is a Wood Library build from Ish Guitars, so thanks to Jesse and his crew for putting this gem together! One of their PS builds is on the cover of this years PS calendar I believe!!
