Outstanding. One of my all time faves, but it's missing a Bigsby. Congrats!
Now that's neat! Congratulations!
Beautiful guitar Patch. I've been thinking of ordering a LeMans at some point. Did you order this directly from Mark or pick up used?

I ordered it directly from Mark.
I have to say thank you to Mark and Kate at MotorAve Guitars.
GREAT communication during the building process.
Mark is right up there with Saul Koll. Two first-class luthier.
They want nothing but complete satisfaction from their customers.
The guitar is exceptional in all aspects.
The finition is top notch.
The sound is absolutely what I wanted from a humbucker guitar.
The match of the hollow body with the Wolfetone Dr Vintage is incredible.
Thanks for the comments!
I own two Motor Aves (Bel Aire & Le Mans) with a third on the way (12 String Bel Aire)
Welcome to the club
SWEET!!! Great to see another BelAire in the house. I too own a BelAire and a LeMans, and have another BelAire on the way.
Mark and Kate are the best. You're going to love that guitar. Our Motorave TGP family is growing!
Simple, clean, gorgeous guitar there.
We want pix!!!
Cool body shape. I'm not crazy about that huge pickguard though.
IMHO of course. I'll bet it sounds and plays great though.
Very very cool. One of the classiest looking guitars made today. I bet it sound great to.
:BITCH I hate you! :BITCH
Me want soooooooo bad....
Awsome. I am envious.
How resonant is it? I've been interested in these, but wondered how they rang out. Hard question, but it's what I'm interested and am located in Smallbany NY, where none exist.
Here are my two Motor Aves:
very nice , enjoy it
Is the LeMans neck heavy like the typical SG, or more balanced?
