However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Beautiful. This is the one that's made me to decide to skip the natural finish on #172 and go with a burst. Love the back of the neck and headstock. Again, beautiful!

    I hate to be so superficial but that is among the coolest looking pieces of wood I've ever seen. What character.

    Does Ron let you choose for a close volume knob, located where a Strat's volume knob is?

    It's official. Thanks to Drunkagain #172 is in the books for a rootbeer burst finish on the back and neck with the already spec'd amber/tortoise top.

    Ron assures that it will be a winning combo! Thanks Ron and D.A.
