    THAT is killer flame. You probably got the pick of the bunch! [edit: oops I missed the ME1 headstock and thought that was a 53/10 limited. No wonder such killer flame!]

    Speaking of inlays with incredible detail, where’s 11top with his dragons? You can’t beat those.

    The Ted McCarty 245 run is one of the best that's come out of the factory (IMO).

    I don't own one today, but owned two in the past. I tried once to get a PS trem version, but it's now stuck in Howard Leese's collection.

    [​IMG]

    Howard's PS:

    [​IMG]

    Traded the McBurst for red (shocking I know).

    [​IMG]

    McCarty trem (another great run).

    Signature Limited.

    WAY under rated run. Maybe because of sinker mahogany controversy - but these are fantastic guitars.

    With the price of the gold these days, those inlays on their own must be worth a pretty quid!

    Another 408 Signature Limited. I'll admit to having no clue as to what the sinker mahogany drama was all about...

    Sorry. Everytime Jcha posts his beauties, I cannot resist a family re-union. It’s just too fun.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][Late edit] Jcha’s pale beauties “migrated to the northern hemisphere”, while mine “went south developing a more sun-kissed complexion”.

    But they all come from the same origin and they are same, they are one. Splice the genes and you have Permambuco, Indian Rosewood, Maple, Mahogany, Paua and Mammoth Ivory.

    Same and one.

    Jcha’s has nicer flame though. Damn!

    (Okay, only slightly) :rolleyes:
