    I ordered a Heatley Parisianne a couple months back. I asked Scott to take his time since I don't like shipping guitars in the middle of winter (his normal turnaround is 6 months on this model). Should see it early in the spring 2018. Current colour choice is moss green top with dark stained body and neck.

    I've got a Suhr Standard Pro in chili pepper red on the way (with a loaded HH pickguard - cheaper to buy as an extra than to have them fit it at the factory!)... also a Mike Lull custom M5 bass. Exciting couple of months ahead!

    A Thorn Artisan from the koi and koa run and a McNaught Nitrous. In the non custom realm I have a Harrison Tele due to arrive this week and one of the Peavey HP2s on order as well. Should be a good next few months.

    I'd not heard of that builder, but now I have, I want one! Which finish have you gone for?

    Will be a solid Korina body. Should be pretty lightweight.

    He has been around for quite a while. I actually got a guitar from him back in 2006 but ended up selling it off a few years later (see pic). Was a great guitar, but over time I fell out of love with the orange burst finish. Of course, I had seller's remorse shortly after selling it :)

    I've been keeping an eye on his site over the years and have been knocked out by his newer designs so decided to take the leap again.

    I'm going for a dark stained back and neck and a moss green top. Pick guard will be tortoise and the knobs and pickups will be black. Currently planning on using TV Jones P90 sized Classic and Classic + pickups so I'll have the option to swap to P90s later.
