    It might be the same guitar but different. The one on reverb is serial number 682. Ancient Sunset is 470. Either way, those resins should be pretty solid by now.

    Yup, still there. That neck is stunning, too. The description reads "sterling silver frets". I'm guessing he meant nickel silver? Also he makes no mention of the place markers but they look like MOP to me. Stunning guitar. Has a make offer.

    Howdy boys. Anyone want to guess who scooped up this slab of pure sex today for a criminally low price?

    My brother in law is a pretty handsome guy, and a boob. Not as handsome as that guitar. Chalk that one up.

    Wow! I see that it's maple for the top, but what is the back? Looks like mahogany?

    Yep mahogany. I wanted a strat with some les paul characteristics. Neck is brazilian rosewood board on maple, has a strat bridge with trem. Lollar imperials. Schaller locking tuners.

    It's going to be an original -- that's for sure!

    Heres the neck.
    Yep its unique. I found some close guitars, like the Suhr modern but this is way more guitar for the money and specd exactly as I wanted it. Ron even worked on the control knob layout for me.

    Now with the neck, I wasnt expecting this beautiful flame but when I saw how good the top came out, I was hoping it would have some nice grain in it but this here is way way beyond my expectations and Im, as the brits would say, well chuffed lol

    Also I have no intentions of, for lack of a better phrase, bragging about the guitar. Rather I just want to show how amazing Ron's work is.
