Congratulations to me on my first post in the TDPRI Vendor forum . To start off, I will repost images of my most recent concept guitar model illustrations, an as yet unnamed design that I completed several days ago and posted in the 'Other Guitar, Other Instruments' forum for comments. It's not really a 'new' design to me, I've had partially complete art of it for at least five years (make that ten years, the original crude sketch of it is dated 2007). Regardless, I just recently resurrected it from my 'dustbin of forgotten guitars' and pushed it to completion. I was informed via email late last night that this model, with several alterations, will likely be offered by Eastwood in 2018. I submitted this guitar design to them last weekend, but hadn't had a response until around 11:00 PM yesterday. I'm hoping that the cream neck bindings and fretboard inlays will be retained on any forthcoming production version of this model I will definitely be changing the headstock, and probably remove the bevel cut seen on the curved cutout at the rear of the body, that location needs full body width to accommodate the cable jack. Color options will be decided later, but I will predict that the metallic red/cream and metallic blue/cream will likely be offered, as those combinations have been used on previous Eastwood 'Backlund' guitars and suit this model quite well.
