    The decal thing was mighty popular in the olden days. It'd be hard to NOT find a fender player without some sort of pinup or something of the likes on the guitar. A few of Bill Frisell's old tele's have em, Jerry Garcia had a few guitars w/ it, Steve Kimock as well. Just a form of 'personalization' I guess...Just seems a little odd for the luthier to assign one to it, though.

    I like that decal :AOK, I don’t think he assigns them, from his web site looks like everything is built to customer specs

    They run around $1600 which is a fantastic deal for what you get.

    Everything is done from scratch including hand shaping the neck, picking out the wood and cutting the bodies. All based on the things you are looking for in a guitar. He even likes to wait until the guitar is built to decide on pickups based on the tone the instrument naturally has. This is a totally customized instrument built in a vintage style with modern techniques. :dude

    That decal is on John Fogerty's guitar, I saw it in the picture on Jeff's site and its just something he offers if you want. I got to be honest, I really like it and probably will get one on it. :dude

    It got delayed another week. :(
    I'll post pics when I get it and do a major tone report after having it for a week or so. Im dying to get my hands on it.
    Jeff is great to deal with. Guess he's starting to get really busy with orders after the nashville show.:YinYang
