    Creamsickle is a better image, and now I can't get that out of my head, makes me hungry looking at it.:eek:

    As for Orange in general, there were a couple of Reverend guitars in orange that keep grabbing my attention whenever I see a picture.
    I do have two different orange spray paint cans for a guitar body when I get around to building the next guitar .... :cool:

    Thanks Peegoo, jvin248, & everyone else for the observations & general positivity. A relative newcomer & less “seasoned” than many here on the TDPRI, I wasn’t so sure how my "Pumpkincaster" would be received. It’s been great to hear some folks get near as much a kick out of it as I, so thanks to all again.

    jvin248, if you're as much a creamsickle junkie as I am, you will truly appreciate this. Serve it in a glass with crushed ice. A little over vanilla ice cream is good too.

    Great! Best of luck; if you need a Peyton Manning jersey (worn once) to sweeten the deal, let me know:)

    I'd be cautious about putting this bridge on there

    [​IMG]

    Because I think the bridge pickup pole pieces are too close together to make it work (they are too close together with the above pickup) If you had some with a wider array, then you'd also have to do a directional drill to re-employ the ferrules in their stock location.

    Or, you could make it work as a top loader - just drill 6 holes in the lower aspect of the plate, down close but not too close to the plane of the body.

    That really looks sweet. I have a black strat that has those block inlays. It also has a black headstock instead of the natural wood finish.

    These look great, they seem to go quickly whenever they pop up used. Enjoy

    Would a chopped bridge like these hold down a bridge cover? I've been mulling that for my Squier Cabronita--that would look class.
