    I have enough guitars. Really, I have too many guitars, some just don't get played. And I don't have room for any more guitars.

    But then along comes a deal you just cannot resist. And so I made the deal, and paid. The guitar has shipped but won't be here until Friday, and I take off on Friday to run a marathon in Fort Worth so I won't see it until Sunday night.

    Mr. P had it right. The waiting is the hardest part!

    MJT body, Warmouth neck, two TV Jones pickups. I think I'll probably put on a pickguard, but I will have to see it first.

    What is your vote? :)

    White, Black, other?


    I am leaning towards black. But I still need to see it in person.

    Hard to say without seeing it but my vote is white...I think it would contrast well with the body color..

    Lovely! Congratulations!

    As far as pickguard colour, I can visualize both white and black doing it justice, but white would make the colour pop a little more.

    Just my $0.05...
