    I had Jim build this for me, and is my version of his signature guitar:

    Candy Apple Red with bare arm, matching headstock
    alder body
    Brazilian rosewood fretboard with pearl inlays
    6100 frets
    S/S/S JTS5250 (n), JTS3250 (m), JTT3500 (b)
    5 way with master tone and midboost w/ bypass
    G6RV bridge with Raw Vintage saddles
    Hipshot locking tuners

    So, what's the deal with the skull and crossbones dealio on the back of the headstock? None of MY Tyler's ever sported that. . . Any story?

    Thanks guys. It is truly a remarkable guitar and I looking forward to gigging with it tonight.

    The skull & crossbones is a special touch that "Joe" put on my guitar:D

    I would contact Jim or Sarah direct at the shop.

    I am pretty sure they may still make you a Classic, and Sarah can give you an idea of build times and pricing.

    what are you thoughts on the saddles? Can you tell any difference between those and the one on your other guitar?

    I like them.

    I have several Tylers but this and the Joe are my only 6 screw bridges.

    These seem to have less of a tinny high end and more bass response. I will know even more after a couple of hours at the gig and after the strings break in.

    Holy crap!

    I need a cold shower now.

    Sweet. I'd love a strat style guitar with a Tele bridge pickup.
