    Hi all - I just wanted to brag on Terry for a while...he truly is a master craftsman and a nice guy as well! I ordered a Carolina Custom and after LOTS of conversation back and forth we settled on him creating his first ever VOS Finished guitar - needless to say, I am thrilled with the completed project. The guitar is outstanding in every way. The finish is outstanding - aged hardware looks freakishly good - and he nailed the color I wanted (BOTB Front cover)!! Check out the back on this thing - can you say WOW - now that's quality wood!
    This guitar plays like a dream - the neck is unlike any Historic LP that I have owned/played. Terry took every known neck measurement of original 1959 Bursts and came up with his own version - lets just say that it's unreal!!

    Thanks Terry -- your awesome! :D



    Specs:
    Eastern Maple carved top
    Mahogany back
    Mahogany neck
    Select IRW fretboard, 24.625" scale. 22 frets
    Ultra-thin and hard nitrocellulose lacquer finish
    Custom-wound VooDoo pups
    AVR-II bridge
    Aluminum stop tailpiece

    Nice, very nice. And I suspect that it plays great and even sounds better. Enjoy for many years.

    BTW: Topwrap, cool!

    With tone and oneness, Mike

    He is a class act all the way. Owned a few through the years. Regret selling the ones I had
