    It also definitively answers the eternal question “What do you wear with a blue guitar?”
    Blue on blue on faded blue jeans...layer that $h!t!!!

    If the owner is out there lurking, I have a message for you:

    DIBS!

    And I don’t say that often or lightly. There have been some nice guitars posted here, so why this one? I’m a wood guy, but I like unique. There are lots of nice uniform flame tops, but this one is a fingerprint. One has to look through a lot of maple tops to find mother nature’s art like this. Give me that cool anomaly.

    QUILT! ALL! THE! THINGS!!!!

    I almost wonder if they made that guitar an extra inch thicker so the quilt on the edge would stand out more.

    This one is still available at Willcutts.

    To quote Ferris Bueller, “Its so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.” :D

    LOL ah yes that’s true, he already has one to his name! What I really meant was taking the Santana body shape and making it a singlecut. Hmm now that’s an idea for a new PS!

    I’m looking at the Santana’s you posted above, and using my pinky to obscure the left cutaway, and then imagine what it would look like. I must say, I LIKE what I see!! It would look more Les Paulish because of the more rounded bottom curves, but totally unique!
