Hey thanks for the nice comments, folks:) She's a beyoot ain't she?


TW, pickguard from Nichols - http://www.nicholsguitars.com/pickguards.html - he does gorgeous work with exotic woods. Mine will be the satin-finish black/ebony with a MOP border inlay. Can't wait:)


Karen, forgot to include the strap in the pics lol sorry. Will take a couple of more pics soon and show ya. Sully makes awesome straps. Fits her like a glove:)


And, the custom wire job turned out awesome. The sound is incredible amped. Best dang guitar I've ever owned:)

TW, yep exact shape. I had called Gibson customer service and complained about the original p/g and they sent a replacement. Bill Nichols asks for a tracing of your pickguard so the specs will be the same and I just sent him the replacement p/g to work with. Will be the same size and shape, thin ebony wood with a satin finish. Very handsome pickguard. Yes, I'll send pics! :))
