    OK, I just got these this morning.

    A few small details to be added (headstock inlay, etc) but this guitar is ready for stain....

    I'll reiterate that I love the fingerboard, and the curly maple binding.

    Yes Shane-I'll have it with me at NAMM.

    Are you going to be at NAMM? If so, I'm also bringing my redwood DOlphin. Your welcome to try them out.

    I'd also like to check out the Orca through a Fuchs ODS.

    Very cool! I am so looking forward to when I get my pair of Huber Juniors sometime next year. Keeping us updated with developments.

    Unfortunately, I am not going to NAMM this year. I am going to Australia for two weeks vaction in early February so that is eating up all my travel funds for the time.

    That looks like it's going to gorgeous!

    Question, ar these priced along the line of gibson standards or historics if you were to compare?

    I'm not really sure-can you tell me were the new Gibson Historics are priced?

    I know these are more than Gibson Standards are.

    There is a new Orca inthe dealers Emporium for 4100 so I am assuming that most are right in this same neighborhood....

    Looks tasty, Greg!
    I'd like to check out the Redwood at NAMM. I'm kinda curious as to the tone/weight.

    Damn, Nik builds a nice guitar.

    It's actually a pretty big neighborhood...LOL!

    I was actually going to suggest contacting Cliff or Willcutt for pricing.

    That's a spectacular piece that Cliff is selling. And he's getting some more killer stuff-check him out for sure.

    Kevan and Cliff-let's get together at NAMM. Bringing the Red Standard, and the Hubers. I may also be bringing my Watson that some people want to see.

    That's really going to be a great looking guitar! The wood is so clean and gorgeous looking! It's an ANGEL!

    Greg- Sounds like a good plan. You've got my number. I'll try to wiggle an amp into the hotel room for the weekend.
    Plus we can compare your Hubers and Hamers to my $150 super-store display Strat. Won't that be fun?

    :D

    I'd be envious if I didn't have my own Huber due at NAMM.
    Both will be rather cool...among the rest of his booth :D

    Nice looker and I can't wait to check her out!

    Damn, Greg.

    You are not making this easy for me, are ya?!

    That's going to be a stunner when it gets completed.

    Update-I just got these today.

    I think it looks great with the stain...I like the top even more now!

    Coming along nicely! Personally I think that maple top was good enough that it didn't need to be stained. The contrasting stripe on the edge is gonna look way too cool. What color is the back?

    The back is going to be natural.

    Nik was toying with the idea of not staining, but he felt for this color it needed it. I defer to him on these things....

    I have plenty of non-double stain Hamers in the fold--Nik gives me something a little different. :)
