While I do still lust after some guitars...

 

Seeing wood like this makes me want it more than I could have imagined...

 

 

Hmmm, what I could do with that :)

Oooh, now then, this will be good! Solid arch top a la Les Paul? Burst? I think I must be as excited as you, that's a nice bit of flame there!

Yes I am very excited too....

 

Right now im not quite sure exactly what im going to do.. I am going to have a good long think about that while I wait for it to turn up...

 

I kinda like the edge finishing on my Hammer.. and with this sort of top I think I NEED to do some binding.. So I may do an Arrow shape as I want to add binding to that model which I think will really make it complete like the roundover edge ive been doing made the Hammer shape from ok to really nice.

 

OR I could do a one off for myself and make a nice double cut standard (kinda like what AXE had made)... Or if I was feeling really brave try and make my own 59ish type LP..... see how close I can get.... Id really like to try a burst but need to practice that a bit first.

 

So many options :)

 

What ever I do, I will be treating it with the utmost respect :)
