    Guys....this morning I had some good sunshine down here in H-town, so I decided to shoot some pictures of my baby. Please no haters!:) I just had fun photographing my Limited and I wanted to share the pictures with you!

    Simple, and very nice. I love the "imperfection" around the low E tuner, or in other words, i like wood to look like wood!
    Anyway, simple, nice looking. Very much to my taste.

    Beautiful, Charlie. The imperfection is perfect.

    The "imperfection" is my favorite visual part of the guitar. It's gorgeous....kind of like Cindy Crawford's mole......:p

    That is without a doubt the most beautiful wood grain I have ever seen on a neck. Head and shoulders above the rest of the best with regard to aesthetics, I can only imagine how it must sound and play. Congrats!

    "Imperfections" can be great. That's why we stay away from Super Models I think.

    Love your pictures as always and looks like a wonderful instrument. I have almost pulled the trigger a couple of times. I know you seem to really enjoy yours and it sure is fun finding stuff you like.

    Beautiful guitar and photography. I like the imperfection as well - it adds character. If only my imperfections were as appealing!

    If you have good sun later can you take pictures of the back? I am very fond of the aesthetics of the two plates (the reverse symmetry) and the lovely curviness of the heel.

    Oh, and is the neck a soft V to C (10/56) or some other profile?
