    Nice guitar - hopefully the luggage gorillas didn't do anything to it.

    Did John get his kiln set up yet?

    Wow Pete, that has a great vibe just looking at it.
    Can't wait to hear it.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Glad to hear John is moving into a bigger space, I'm sure he'll have plenty to do there w/ guitars like that leaving him.

    Pete, seems like you prefer the V60LP's over the ML pickups. Can you elaborate on this for us?

    I must be seeing things.:huhThe bottom of the fretboard looks like the corners are rounded off like a Fender. Normally Suhr leaves that area squared off.

    You can order a Suhr Classic/Classic T with either 21 or 22 frets. The 21 fret versions look like Pete's, with the end of the fretboard rounded off.

    ( Sinasli ) You lucky duck you. You must know know somebody at Suhr. I just got my Suhr classic with a Roasted maple neck, but I was told that they are not doing roasted bodies yet. I would have been all over it, if they were. I think I was told they had to test the body thing out some more before making that generally available. Cheers though, Very nice guitar that you have there.
