Just figuring out how to post pics. Here is a recent build of mine. Real bronze goldtop gold paint with nitro top coat.

I actually like that better than I do a Goldtop LP. Sacrilege perhaps, but I've never really taken to the goldtop.

I like it better than firemist or shoreline. I've been trying to get someone to buy one with that color but everyone wants butterscotch blonde these days. Perhaps I should just make one for myself???

Wow guys,thanx for the kind words! Yes,I will get outside for some shots.I'm not very computer literate so all of this is a major learning curve for me. Here's some specs:
USACG one piece alder body
Warmoth boat neck(asked for Brazillian,got something else,not sure what!)Total vintage specs
Callaham hardware
Fralin 5% Underwounds w/bridge baseplate
All in all a nice vintage feeling and sounding Strat

Hey TwoTubMan, Funny you should mention the tort 'gard. I had one on there for a while but it seemed just a bit too busy so I went with the green. Thanks again guys for the kind words, I also have several other Strat and Tele builds that I would like to get your opinions on. I'll get busy over the weekend with the camera!

I think your sensibilities were right on the money there. Very classy as is.

Is that pretty close to Aztec Gold?
