    A little lacking on the amp front now. I am using a super champ right now. I would like to get ahold of a deluxe reverb.

    Very very VERY cool 59: top loader maple board like Jim Campilongo’s tele. The finish color and relic’ing on this one look particularly nice.
    Would you have some pics of the back of body and neck please?
    Congrats and enjoy this great NGD!

    Very beautiful guitar. My favorite color combo of a pale blonde and a white guard. Simply stunning!

    I love it. :cool: One of the few CS guitars I've played is my second cousin's Esquire...it played so well I spent ages afterwards trying to get my Classic 50s a little closer to how it felt. Thankfully time and my memory has faded enough that my Classic 50s feels good again, but I'd better not play his again unless I want to buy it from him. :D
