    Always been curious of Rick Turner Guitars ever since Lindsey Buckingham started playing one. A buddy of mine bought one and he just picked it up. He called me yesterday to ask me if I wanted to check it out.. Well Of Course..! DUH..! I told him to bring it on over. He got the LB Model 1..
    I think I could use this guitar and never touch my others and be totally satisfied.. The tone combinations this guitar does is unbelievable.. And every one sounds So Good.. And it feels really good on top of that.

    Now I have GAS for one.. This would require selling off some things, because they are a bit pricey. But I still want to get one..

    a few pictures of my buddies..

    Yeah...
    I had the pleasure of having the opportunity to get one that looked just like that, and the seller changed his mind.
    A badass guitar if there ever was one.

    Looks like the Low E is not lined up across the bridge very well.
    I simply would not stand for that.
    I'll take it off your hands so you don't have to feel the shame.

    Wow, $7500 for a new one (The Santa Monica Series, looks like 5 made total)

    Even the "normal" run ones are $4k+

    That IS a pretty penny, but you've got to pay to play as they say...... (hey, that rhymed!)

    This won't end well. May want to search for him here. There have been a few interesting threads.

    I agree. I'd never let anything leave my shop looking that way and I'm just a hack builder.

    Seriously though. I noticed how the low E was pinched also. Is that intentionally done that way?

    Mike-do yourself a favor and read up on the 'issues'...

    I wouldn't have anything to do with one unless it was used.
