    I hope he remembers he's got a slot for me at the end of this month!

    He delivered the Mary Lye Pink Bigsby Esquire and I've got another Bigsby (B5 this time) body and neck for him to do. :)

    That’s a very classy looking Tele. It is awesome to see your vision come to fruition!
    Nice work!

    I love bound Telecasters. Rosewood boards, too. It's a really gorgeous look that relies on the shape and form of the guitar, not added bling. Even the binding is really functional (given how dinged up a standard radiused Tele edge bercomes otherwise). You must be pleased!

    thank you yes I am very, very pleased. Delighted in fact. This is exactly what the vision was and thanks to Jon he delivered the colour perfectly. The finish on the body is everything here otherwise it is just another guitar.

    Oh, it’ll be great. Nothing he has done for me has fallen short of my expectations but he s very very busy and he can’t share his workshop now due to lock down stuff so you can’t complain too much if he runs behind. Really pleased he has so much business.

    That's sweet!
    Jaguar had the same problems with their F1 livery - BRG is very difficult to photograph and the cars just looked black on TV, I believe they had to lighten the shade eventually.
    But you did manage to convey that deep rich green in most of the pics... it looks like a million bucks!

    There's something about BRG that just makes me smile.

    Unlike anything that came out of BL, the neck's not going to fall off in 5 years due to rust!

    Beautiful job.

    I always thought British Racing Green would look spectacular on a guitar. And it does. Wow...

    Love that deep green color! If she plays half as good as she looks, it's definitely a keeper!
