    My new Rocketfire is almost done. Nick emailed me only one pic so far. I can't wait. Here's the one picture.

    Thanks you guys!

    Also, Drew, you'll have to post the original photo you sent in. It's not a 'guitar Xerox' that's been performed but hopefully it's pretty close.

    Thanks Drew!

    2 knobs is cheaper than 3. All future guitars will only have 2 knobs..............

    LOL! and just kidding.

    Actually I charged a touch extra for using 2 knobs. Finding a 2 knob strat pickguard to JerseyDrew's specs wasn't easy!

    I can't locate the original picture. I had a computer mishap. Nick, can you post the pic for me?

    edit: I just found the link for the pic.

    One volume and only one tone. I ordered it this way. The one thing that really bugged me about strats, was the location of the volume knob. I would always hit it when I played, it was really annoying to me. Now there is no knob to get in my way. I can't wait for this guitar to arrive :)

    That is beautiful work. I'm getting really excited about my SRV order from looking at this work. What kind of neck and frets are on that thing?
