    Very nice!
    I've got a korina Duo that should be in the paint booth this week. I was over at Saul's shop last week figuring out all the final details. I made a few really cool changes. I can't wait. I was being really patient until I saw it almost finished. Now I can't stop thinking about it! :D

    I'm a few months away from placing my order (resisting the call of credit card debt) and I can't stop thinking about it!

    Mine is not even in the oven yet, it's still a gleam in my eye ;-)

    Hey T-bone,

    Looks like our guitars are somewhat similar. Here's some specs:

    Duo Glide (chambered) w/ f hole
    korina neck/body. maple top. Braz. Rosewood fingerboard
    TV Jones Electroflux(bridge) and TV Jones Magnatron(neck)/ hipshot trem
    No binding except for the f hole which is bound in tortoise shell.
    I was considering a HD Z90 in the neck but decided on the magnatron after talking with Tom @ TV Jones. He makes such great pickups.
    I replaced the humbuckers in my Duo with a set of TV Trons and couldn't be happier. ( until the new one arrives) I'm really excited to check out the electroflux.

    It's great to see all the support for Saul here. I'm glad to see that he is keeping busy with orders. He's a class act and loves what he does and I think that shows in every guitar he builds.
    (The only bad thing is that it just makes the wait longer.But it's worth it)

    B.

    +1 on the photo's! It definitely adds so much to the custom building experience to get these types of shots from time to time. It looks like Saul is getting into that aspect a little more which is really cool!
