    Thanks, just remembered. Yeah, that guitar...a lot of cool design features. Build quality looks good too. Something different.

    It was a flower print series 10 tele. The pickup is in the green guitar now.

    Spencer also has a thin eucalyptus Scott French that's one of the most beautiful guitars I've seen.

    Although I'm probably one of the older players here I dig the )&$# out of that guitar. Out of the ordinary but in a cool way...tradition doesn't...or shouldn't...always win out.

    I`m surprised Scott doesn`t get more attention around here.

    Superb original designs, fantastic details and execution.

    He deserves to do well.

    Now that's an innovative heel joint. :cool:

    I guess it seems a little less weird to know that it's actually the owner's beard clippings, rather than anyone else's!

    Yeah, well I can tell you I'm 6'6" 280 pounds of lean, solid muscle but it doesn't make it true! :D

    I don't know how innovative it is, but it sure is cool. I have much respect for Scott's work. Those neck joints do make setup a bit more challanging, at least for me.

    Interesting- new to me at least. What makes it different than any other set neck as far as setup is concerned?

    Scott makes great guitars- i have one, but it doesn't have my pubes all over it.
