    Next up is the Liggett Picasso BLACKGUARD

    Vintage sounds and style with a modern twist. With it's one piece flame maple neck, flame maple fretboard, and ash body, this guitar feels and plays like an old classic. The neck is unbelievably comfortable with a "soft C" carve. Genuine Ebony wood binding adorn the master-grade maple fretboard. Premium woods, proprietary hardware, and adornments give this guitar a little something extra, everywhere you look there are special touches.

    $2399

    Damn that’s actually really cool! Kinda half tele, half 335-ish in the lower bout. Definitely has that distorted Picasso vibe.

    For that kind of money, I would prefer the string ferrules in the back flush and a more finessed finish (hand-rubbed oil stain or a more uniform nitro). A personal preference, but that’s just me.

    Of course not ! Fonky and nice shape, indeed... Very good job ! :cool:

    I really dig it and would steal you the templates... :twisted:;) And built a version with TOM and Bigsby ! "The Liggett Picasso Lefty Wobble special"... :cool:

    And Lefty, of course.:D:)
