    Is that top one a Lindsay Buckingham style guitar? Would love to see the front. I’ve built one of those without all the fancy electronics.

    I like both of those, but that Strat is awesome.

    Beautiful guitar!

    Great collection man, but that Strat is to die for!

    I really love this guitar. It just looks great with the Koa, black knobs and silver. Thanks for sharing Audiotrove

    My recently built Covid Lockdown Tele: Walnut with a Mahogany pickguard. There is a big knot just by the control plate but it just looks like "real" wood to me so I didn't try to hide it.

    This single thread contains some of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen. I can't get over the 'The Heritage' guitar of @39martind18, holy smokes! But they're all stunning.

    Thankee! I got extremely lucky with that guitar, buying it sight unseen off Ebay. I knew I'd be getting a guitar with a bit of figure, because that's what Heritage does, but my jaw hit the floor when I uncrated it and saw that gorgeous flame. Been in love every since.

    My ES-335 and Carvin SH550:

    335.jpg carvin.jpg

    The 335 visually looks very different depending on the viewing angle. One way, the flame pattern is more evident, at another angle, the perpendicular grain pattern. Also, very three dimensional, deep patterns. And yes, I am aware it is a laminated top. The Carvin has a carved top.

My Simon and Patrick Showcase Rosewood features a nicely figured Adirondack spruce top with a Rosewood, maple, and mahogany inlay rosette. Count the rings. There are 13 if them. The binding is layered maple and rosewood. The back, divided by the same material as the rosette, is bookmatched so we’ll it looks like a single piece.
