Very very cool ! !
Much better than the gold, and I'm generally a fan of gold!
I agree that the hybrid looks better than all gold. Very nice!
Looks amazing either way, but I'm a fan of the mixed hardware, too.
I also think it looks better now and if you hear it sounds better it´s a double win.
I like the mixed!
Not a huge fan of all gold. Looks Brilliant with the mixed!!!
I'm not usually a fan of gold but I actually prefer the gold with this reddish top. It could be the pic - nevertheless, great looking guitar.
my favorite look so far, excellent mod
Hey Pete is the "SC thickness" thicker than the 594? Thanks! Really dig your choices and can't wait to see some pics and thoughts!!
Yes, the SC thickness is thicker than the 594 thickness. I am not sure how much, but confirmed to be thicker than the 594 thickness, which is also thicker than the old McCarty/DGT thickness.
Top # 1 from Brian's WL 594 run, Quilt Gray-Black Fade. The gray actually looks more like a sandy color near the horns. Perhaps that's an optical trick due to the natural back, or the binding. It's more apparent when viewed from the side. Awesome Ebony board with sweet Sparkle MOP Birds and Paua outlines. The back has some very nice ribbon to it, and the neck is awesomely figured. The 59/09 in the bridge adds some additional roar to this bad boy. I really, really dig it! Hat's off to Brian for spec-ing a great run!
I haven't A/B'd this with the Dave's WL 594 I acquired from Pete a couple months back. I'll have to put some time on both over the weekend to see just how different the pickups and ebony board sound when compared to the "core" specs (with a brazzy board though).
I had to cop Pete's stool pose (not that kind of stool!) for some of the pics. It was the only way I could get rid of the glare from the florescent lights in the basement. It's gray and overcast in the Chicago area today.
Beautiful! Congratulations! I'm really impressed by the figuring on the neck as well. Looking forward to your comparisons with the 58/15 equipped 594.
Awesome N5D, congrats Bodia! That looks really great, even better in your pics versus the Brian's pics IMO, I like how the Natural back reels it back into balancing vintage versus modern visually, and pulls out the earth tones from the top of the top fade.
It is turning out to be a Brian's Guitars WL N5D week here in Illinois, mine is "Out for Delivery" as we speak!!
WICKED FADE, Bodia. That dark end looks SINISTER. Nice axe. You guys are killing me.
Nice! When I talked to him Monday I told him he might as well ship yours to me too since we're so close!
Not done with you yet, some Violet Blue Burst / Rosewood Neck action coming here soon!!
Gorgeous to boot, looking forward to the tone report
Congrats, enjoy ABing
If that's the same one....your lucky I went to Brian's store specifically to purchase this very guitar. Played it some but then Brian said that one in the case over there just came in. In the case was Top number 8(don't have confirmation)? I prefer rosewoods necks so I went with the new arrival instead. It was a hard decision because that is one BEAUTIFUL quilt combined with the black grey fade....stunning! Enjoy your almost stolen gem
