    RULES! :)

    Guitar 3 must be a guitar that is not available that has features or finishes that are not available in the current lineup of a company or model. A short description would be helpful.

    It can be subtle or drastic, a mashup of one company's guitars.

    You must provide a picture of all three guitars, not just a description. Pictures or it's not real! :)

    I'll go first...

    Guild's new Starfire I SC is available in 4 finishes, two of which are only available in hard tail - Antique Burst and Vintage Walnut - and two only available with a Bigsby B70 style vibrato - Snowcrest White and Seafoam Green. I want an Antique Burst with a vibrato!

    Might be breakin' the rules here a bit, because it has mods other than the two guitars combined. But I'll play:)

    Squier Contemporary Strat in Black Sparkle - I wanted this (crazy good neck - to me, at least), but with hot SSS pickups and a tone control wired to the bridge pickup:

    So guitar 2 would be something like the JV Strat with Tex Mex pickups and a tone control wired to the bridge:

    And this is my result (plus the black pearl pickguard, Graphtec saddles and nut, roller trees - and the pickups are actually Bootstrap Oatmeal Stouts, which are even hotter than Tex Mex...)

    It looks very much like the DeArmond Starfires that Guild was building in the early 2000s.
