    Very sexy.

    More pictures would be cool also!

    We need to get you a matching metal switchtip, then she'd be untouchable. :^)

    Thanks. Yes, the switch tip is not fantastic. It does match the tuner knobs, as you can't see. Boris, is there a source for metal tips, or do I need to fabricate something?

    Very nice, looks great! What kind of metal is the control plate & knobs? Brass, aged nickel,...?

    Man oh man that's a beaut! That's the real mccoy right there. It would take a better man (player) than me to strap that guitar on and do it justice!

    Nice work, ZT. Very reminiscent of a Gretsch Roundup with the tooled leather & brass tacks around the edge. Perhaps an 'F' brand for the top next...

    ... or perhaps not...

    Thanks, G and everyone else. The Gretsch Roundup was the inspiration. I have always wanted a Roundup, but they are a bit too pricey for me.
