    Here's mine! It came last week as a gift to myself for my 30th birthday and I absolutely love it. It has belly and forearm cuts, the latter of which I was unsure about and acknowledge it looks a little funny with the wood grain seemingly "distorted," but it's so comfortable I can't imagine going back! It has a USACG neck with Don Mare Donocaster bridge and S-Telly pickups (totally worth the wait!). I love the light relicing and checking. My next electric will definitely be another MJT build!

    Thank you so much!! Indeed the playability is out-of-this world and I'm just so happy with how the guitar turned out! It's so amazing as a lefty to be able to choose what color, neck, etc., all those little details! You should *definitely* get one when you have the chance. Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions on left-handed parts and hardware; I found some good deals and resources during my online searches.

    I just reached out to them & the body I ordered arrived yesterday. So now the waiting continues...can't wait to see the paint job & other appointments to it. I'll post pics of its progress.

    No Doubt! That is gorgeous, those guys do such top-shelf work.

    Congrats in advance.

    I'll be throwing my hat into the ring soon.I figured out I'm not a very good guitar refinisher!

    Yeah, for the price I would rather the pros do this. One day I may get adventurous and try finish work but not now. All that I am waiting on is checking (medium) and for them to darken the bare wood areas a little. I would like to think before Christmas is possible.

    Sonic Blue is done. 6.8 lbs., light 2 piece ash body. The usual aged Fender hardware, Allparts TRO-C neck from portofmiami and Dawgtown 62 pickups. These sound great and are non RW/RP in the middle position.

    That rosewood looks seriously dark or is it just the camera?

    It is that dark. I have been very lucky when ordering these relic necks as they have all been dark and very even with no streaks.

    I asked MJT to do me a build based on very specific wear from an original broadcaster. They've done a spectacular job

    Not only that but this one rings acoustically unlike any electric I've owned. It's the honeymoon period but it might actually be better than my no 1 cs Nocaster.
    Pickups are Klein Broadcasters

    I don't know if this is allowed, and if it's not mods please delete. I have my lefty VTT for sale on Reverb for a heck of a deal if anyone is interested. Only reason for selling is I'm a guitar and amp whore and I want a new amp. Thanks!
