    Yeah. That looks pretty freakin' awesome.

    @sargebaker Will definitely remember that! Right now, I've got another custom build in the works, but after that's done.... :aok

    Island is the guy for this one. We've struck a deal and he'll be building this guitar for me.

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. Great stuff!

    Good choice. Been lusting after one of his guitars for years...

    But I'd be SUPER tempted to go the Ronin roilbucker route that he mentioned!

    Haha maybe!

    Currently drooling over vintage melody makers, specials and hollow bodies. Too many things I want!

    But a slab with a Ronin pickup sounds delicious.

    Do you have any guitars living near Atlanta, Philadelphia, Baltimore or Boston? I live in ATL and travel to the other cities constantly for work. Would LOVE to try one!

    Great thread. I would love a quality version of Danelectro DC wish a Bigsby and a fat neck. I had a Jerry Jones with three pickups, while I prefer two, but the neck was way too skinny for me.

    I was impressed with the couple of JJ guitars I've owned but they were both quite neck heavy and they really helped me know that I wanted to go the custom route someday. Super thrilled that it's underway!
