Sure hope there's an all-hog left-handed one in that group !

Maybe they are going to do all the spruce tops first because it's easier to do all of one kind in one run ?
I'd feel more excited if I saw a #3 in one of those pics.

I thought JCL estimated them to come out in March. I think it will take longer than that to get them all done but I thought that was the target...right?

 

I believed matt's lyrics, sorry. No, the spring estimate was at the start of the order process when we were looking at 20 guitars or so. I assumed that the big order and NAMM would've made an impact.

This is so much more real now, the pics are amazing. Anyone else notice that they note the cutaway model as a VS-03. I wonder if that will be on the label? Pic shows RW too, do you think it is ricky's? It has the highest SN of all the pics!

Thanks randy for posting the pics.

Nope, but it might be mine.  It looks like it's marked LH and I believe that there are 4 left handed being made in RW.

I picked up on that too.  I'll bet that's yours.   I was a little concerned when I saw the picture that showed the list of orders for Trinity Guitars.  The order #s were all over the map but I didn't see your #2 or my #3 in there.   If that's your lefty rosewood then I'm not going to read too much into that list of orders.  I did see 'ol Danny's #1 there.
This whole thing just became a lot more real didn't it ?  I'm glad I just sold my Epiphone Joe Pass signature guitar so I've now accumulated all the funds I need to pay for the thing.  Also thank God for that big jug of coins that I cashed in....    $237.00  worth of pennies, dimes, nickels, and quarters paid for the deposit !

You know, I didn't feel all that excited about it until the photos. Between that and the Bubinga I feel like there's 12 teen girls in my head making that 'Screeeeeeee!!!' noise.

I see your point, but the RW back in picture 1 is different, it says VS-03R, and has the highest SN of all the pics.  The second picture shows LS-03RLH, which could well be yours.

Neither of them are mine crying

Randy- great shots ! The I/S looks fairly consistent in that pile. What does that list represent ? The actual build order or what ?
Thanks.

I think it's just there to torture you. Or it may be part of the Da Vinci Code. But I'm thinking the former.

The order #s were all over the map but I didn't see your #2 or my #3 in there.   
Tuffythepug

Those order numbers on that list are all LS-03 with HB purfling, no lefties and no cutaways. I don't know what that means but BluesMan1 who is number 47 is the only LS-03HB not on that list.  

Also on Randy's list there are 2 #21's but I assumed photomat's is really #23 because there is no #23 on Randy's list.

Mr_LV19E- now I'm getting confused. If like you said, those are LS-03HB & I don't see mine on the list, my anxiety level just shot up ! Mine is a special order with the dots on the opposite side of the neck (I play upside-down, strings stay right-handed). Hoping that's the reason ?

Jeff,
I'm sure it is because you were the only one I could find that was not on the list that had ordered LS-03 HB. Like I said, no lefties or Venetian cutaways on that list. It appears to be a list of standard LS-03 HB. I don't know if that means anything, other than it was just a list that they took a picture of.

I would think rosewood with herringbone would be designated as LS-03RHB and of course a lefty would be LS-03RHBLH
