    My wife ordered me a custom shop Merle Haggard guitar last year for Christmas and it got here today. The guitar is beyond belief. Plays great and to me it looks great. I don't have a photo hosting site so not sure how to post picks.

    They are not through body necks, they are set neck instead of bolt on. There is a plane seam there were they are joined.

    Good gosh, that's one of the nicest I've ever seen. I gotta take a break from work and look this one up. Congrats! Make sure the UPS driver wasn't gigging with it until now!
