    New old guitar day!

    Built this about 5-6 years ago.
    Warmoth birdseye maple neck and a USCG double bound body.

    B&W G-bender

    Sold it to a buddy after I bought my Crook G-bender... Regretted it immediately.


    After bugging him almost as long as he bugged me to buy it, he relented, and sold it back to me!!

    I treated her to new pickups, and a new set of strings.

    So fricking stoked to have her back... Never again sweetheart, I promise! DB tele.jpg

    Nice one. Sharp. Like a bit of binding.

    You're lucky to have that back. A real beauty right there.

    Indeed!

    I felt dirty when he was leaving my driveway the day I sold it.

    That's beautiful, lately I've been jonesing for a blue guitar I don't know why, Im all red guitars since forever.

    BTW nice to see a reverse control plate.

    Gorgeous! Of course, I'm a bit prejudiced. Here's a pic of my double-bound blue partscaster: 20200516_153341.jpg
    (The headstock got bee stung).;):D:D

    Blue with binding? Classy.

    Also, I love the asymmetrical birdseye on the neck (unless it’s just the lighting). My Logan is like that.

    I have replaced the 1-ply black pickguard with a multi-ply BWB guard, and the white layer outlines the guard nicely, echoing the binding on the body and neck. I considered a white/parchment guard, but preferred the black motif. Thanks for your input, however!

    If you like it, it's perfect lol.

    I was just looking at those lovely white inlays, and the binding.

    Btw, your control plate is backwards. errr, I mean NOT backwards :p

    It also has three knobs: individual volume for each pickup and universal tone. Middle position yields infinite variations of tone, controlled by adjustment of volumes. Thanks!:p
