Good eye!  It is indeed Root Beer!  I've already got a Gold Top so I didn't really want another gold guitar.   I thought about Ox Blood, and I almost went with that but obviously picked this instead.  I like how it turned out, though I am wondering how it would look with black plastics.

I dunno man, with that top, if that was my baby the pick guard would be in the case.   it's too bad they preinstalled it, so now you have holes..

I actually thought about asking for it to be included but not installed, but I really use the PG to anchor my hand so I just let them do their thing.  Plus, that top has so much going on you almost need the PG to give your eyes a break.

both valid points,  but still,  the depth of that figuring is amaaaaaaaaaaaaazing..

I like having my pickguard on but that is a bloody amazing top!

As the binding is cream, everything sort of flows from there IMO...black could look nice too, but would it look better? :-k

OK, well here she is at home.  This one came with a perfect setup except for the p/u pole pieces.  For some reason they had the ones in the middle low, and the ends high, the exact opposite of the fingerboard radius.   Anyway, once I fixed that it sounds great.  It feels really nice and plays fantastic.   The P90s are out of phase so they hum-cancel in the middle position which is nice.   One thing that is weird is that it's a gloss guitar but they put VOS hardware on it.  They said they would send me new hardware if I wanted.  To me, it looked more dramatic in the photos.  In person it's not really that noticeable.

The OP's Guitar is beautiful. If I were to buy one, Bigsby's for playing purposes, are mandatory requirements on my Guitars...
