    Lots of anticipation to see these masterpieces. Has anyone seen one yet?

    Vince,

    Just wondering what the current waitlist is for one of these. I'm extremely interested in the SC56.

    Also, is there any way to get the SC56 with a blackguard, or are you set on the options for each model?

    While we've got a pretty good backlog to build out right now, it never hurts to get the order in. We're doing the models based on the numbers on order, in batches to make them go faster. Putting a blackguard on the DC56 is not a problem.

    Hey Vince, the website looks great. Can someone buy a "New Old Stock" type one, with zero ageing?

    Vince,

    Are the Legatos and such going to stay in your lineup after the T and S types become available?

    Of course he's busy. Wouldn't want it any other way. Something good is happening.:)

    Actually, I wanted to hear from him. Do you have personal knowledge on this point?

    I'm deciding which double-cut I'd want if I decided to buy one. Recommendations?

    I was PLEKing all day yesterday and didn't stop by here. Yes, we'll still be offering all our models. The Artifacts are just more stuff to choose from, and we are considering offering non-aged models.

    That's quite a collection there...

    The first of SC 50 BG's are very close to shipping, and we've DC's coming after that.

    It's like Fullerton 1950 around here these days!

    Should be fun. Although the logo on the headstock makes me think more Everlasting Gobstoppers than '50's Fullerton. Not necessarily a bad thing...just sayin'

    Hey Guys,

    We've actually got a photoshoot scheduled on Saturday to shoot a big inventory of stuff coming out. As soon as we get them back from Fotomat, I'll post them here!

    I'm really pleased with this first batch of the SC BG 50's. It's the vibe we wanted, and they're all loaded with Lollar Vintage PU's in special Glendale bridge plates nicely aged with Intone Cutting Edge bridges. Yes!

    Alan, the SC56's won't be far behind. We've upped the R&D time to get more stuff out faster. Todd will keep you posted.
