First time I took a side-by-side shot. My camera skills are ZERO, surprised I found the button. I like the first one. Honey & Belle Belle: Ash/Maple. V neck, Compound radius (Shhhh!!!). Fender C/S guts. Honey: Alder/Rosewood, Top Loader, 3-ply 5-screw green guard like the first batch, B16. V neck because it felt so good on the other. Blackguard is a rockin' KILLER, cleans up very nice. Custom is very rhythmic and clear. Always stays in tune. Both have Harmonic Design Vintage Plus pickups. I LOVE THESE GUITARS!
