and showing off...
Love Doug's stuff, nice Soulmate!
Sweet! Congrats! Who is the builder? What are the specs? Looks like Birdseye maple for the top, and a Korina back?
very nice, what is the nut ?
One of the best looking Soulmate's yet! I really like the inlay pattern too!
That neck joint is sweet, it's so clean looking. I love that black and white binding on the neck too.
Active pickups? How does she sound? Details, man, details!
Nice score, enjoy it.
As soon as I saw the back of the neck, I knew it was a soulmate. So Doug is still making guitars huh? I know he was burnt out a few years ago and just concentrated on necks. I have the privilege of owning 3 and there is nothing in the price range even close. Congrats on a great guitar!
Agree btw he makes some of the best bang for the buck!
That's sweet! It's nice to see something fresh and unique like this. I have always liked Doug's work. I only wish I had realized where he was when I was in New York. I would have surely looked him up.
Wow, what a perfect color match with the fingerboard and burl top. This guitar is beautiful.
You do some amazing work yourself David..........someday I will have one!
That is beautiful!:AOK
Awesome guitar dude!!!
who makes those?
That's real purty...
Not really my style, but really nice looking. Like somebody redid an old, classic luxury car.
Looks great except I would have chrome covered pickups , just never like the looks of the black covers but I think I could live with it. have fun, looks fantastic
very elegant.. classic simplicity. congrats
so what kind of pups are those and what she sound like?
oh - since 2 people asked and I was wondering too ... quick google uncovered this :
what's the range on these?
I had doug make me a guitar a while back and his pricing was very reasonable.
Congratulations on your score. Beautiful guitar!
Thanks All for the positive remarks!
Well it's been too long! Custom neck building has been overwhelming at times, so guitar stuff has taken a back seat.
I had the wooden parts for this one for about 2 years. Recently I just couldn't look at them sitting unused any more... :AOK I seriously burned the midnight oil during this build...
