    I would like to clarify the situation with my crook, bill would've already had mine to me but I had some things come up and had to have him push mine back, as well as my playing style evolved and so I had to ask for a few changes early on just before the build started. We all know bill makes quality instruments and in a very timely manner. IMHO any time waiting for a crook is better than tryingto get the bugs out of something else

    I went to the Crook website last night. I saw the Pink Paisley Relic and said :eek:. I called my wife in, she said :eek:. Then she said you need one of those. :cool: I don't believe she will let me part with that kind of cash for one second.

    Enough about me, you should be burning the frets of the old girl about now. I can't wait for the pics and your thoughts.

    Here are some quick shots I took of the Crook tonight. For some reason, shes being a little camera shy. I might take her out tomorrow and get better pics and submit a review on it. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some playing to do... :lol:

    Wow, congrats, he does a great job on getting that aged '68 Paisley vibe.

    Bet it looks even better in real life.

    i'm a bit of topic but i have to ask. i don't see any paisley teles with rw fingerboard. is it a big no no?
    thinking of building one so not to maake a mistake
    and another thing, is the finish poly or laquer? ply seems a more durable option that will protect paisley paper better. are ther lauqer finished paisley teles out there?

    Good to see that inspection hat in the background has a faceshield. Letting that much awesome hit you in the face could kill you.
