    Sweet! Congrats! Who is the builder? What are the specs? Looks like Birdseye maple for the top, and a Korina back?

    Enjoy it!:)

    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!

    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.

    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...
