    Dude, I love the top on the blue one!

    Congrats again on the anniversary and thanks a million for sharing with us. Looking forward to seeing the new one come together.

    I love seeing this stuff re: your guitar, Shawn.

    Though I'm equally happy to believe that a genie from a lamp made my PRSes magically appear after they were fashioned by Hephaestus in his workshop on Mount Olympus.

    After all, my McCarty Singlecut is called The Hammer Of The Gods... :)

    I may have missed this, but have you decided on a color Shawn?

    Those are Starla pups, but they were too bright for my taste so I put in 59/09's. The blue one now has 57/08's installed.

    No decision just yet. Once the body is glued together and the excess is cut of on the band saw, Trampas is going to do some color samples for me.

    Good call. If you are there to see how the wood actually takes a particular stain, then all the better. Congrats on a milestone as well!

    Dude you can say "pink." No one is going to question your masculinity or moral fiber. :D

    Could you have chosen any model design? Like a JA-15 or Super Eagle?

    Last night my son said I should go with a Grey Black finish, "It matches your hair". :(

    I'm ready to be adopted. My wife said she'd sign the papers.

    Plus my hair color apparently matches yours.
