I've heard of complaints about how the clear guards would get dirt and debris built up around the edges and look bad after a while...then start to curl on the edges...

I prefer the tortoise....

I do have a clear plastic...similar to the clear pickguards on the tank of my motorcycle....prevents sctatching when I put a tank bag on there. I don't mind it on the bike but I don't care for them on a guitar. If I get a clear one in the case...I may put it on ebay....if the supply is low you never know what kind of price it could bring at auction...could help offset the cost of the guitar itself!

And there is Daysailer at 659. Unavoidable for any frequent poster. Better get used to it, or even better ignore it.

Easy to say when one is barely over 200 posts.

Maybe a quick double post to tic the counter over and keep the 'dred'ed  (pun?) number from being observed and marking me as the foretold bearer of unimagainable kaos and mayhem...

Or, to a post at the top of a subject section that is exactly one year old today...  can anyone find that post...????

FYI - "Clapton's Guitar" was an excellent read and I recommend it to any FIII buyer who needs a pleasant distraction from the wait. It's a short book and a very quick read. It gives you an appreciation of luthiers, common GAS, and deep respect for those folks who manage to push away all of life's distractions to produce something spectacular.

Check out Doc Watson playing his Henderson guitar (the two are actually good friends):

Some of that RW looks like it has Sapwood in it? If I had known it would look like what i've seen, I might have changed my mind.....

Thanks for posting the pics Randy.

The herringbone purfing looks AMAZING on the Italian Spruce guitar!!!!!!  I am so glad I ended up adding the purfing.  I can't wait to see what the Hogtop guitars look like with the purfing!!!  The other cool thing about the pictures is that this is the first time we have seen a completed LS body.  Very nice indeed.

Thanks to John for posting these pictures.  Every new set gets me even more excited.

  Matt I have been practicing more and within a month or so I'll put some up. I never have recorded though so I need to get a setup.
            My wife likes the way I play, but I explain to her that good guitar players will hear a lot of mistakes and I want to work on that first. (timing, finger roll etc.)

You have until Monday morning March 9th. That's an extra 8 days for your "or so" and gives you an extra weekend.  cop
Failure to comply may lead to disciplinary action up to and including wet noodle whippings,  being strapped to a tree and forced to listen to Metallica and finally forced to drink a potion which will give you eternal and uncontrollable GAS for esteban string holders!
