New Bruton in the house and I cannot wait!!! Ben has truly been a pleasure to work with. I gave him some artistic liberty so it will be a 3 piece curly maple back and 3 piece curly maple neck with ebony fingerboard bound w/b/w with SS frets. Amber guitar with a final hint of honey in the finish. Suhr SSV pickups. Man, I'm drooling on the keyboard....

It's basically a small body archtop. Ben (the luthier) said it pretty much does everything from jazz, fusion, rock and all points in between.

I'll post pics when I can.

Chris,

It's been a while, and I'm guessing the guitar has warmed up by now!
By that I mean, howzit going with that thing? Does it rule? Got any pics?

I have had a chance to play this guitar and it is indeed a fabulous guitar. Very solid construction and excellent craftmanship. The Suhr SSV pickups sound great and area exactly that, very vintage sounding. Very smooth with nice sounding overdrive but very smooth. Very little difference in the neck and bridge pickups but I like that....

I'll try and post some pictures later...
