    Anders,

    Beautiful, just beautiful. Another masterpiece from the maestro.
    Love the shading of the 'burst.....
    What are the specs, again?

    Best, Pete.

    Indeed a masterpiece. Alder hollow body (braced) Spruce top, Korina Neck Glued in (don't know how), Blackwood fretboard and Protobuckers :) .

    Too cool! Can't wait to hear tone report &/or clips!

    edit: (In addition to Bill's, which I've already heard.)

    Wonderful axe!

    May I compliment you on your photography, too? Why don't my pics turn out that nice?!

    Niiiice. cool burst. I like the way it is subdued in it's change. Can't wait to hear clips. This is going to make it hard for me to wait another what 8-9 months.

    Damn that's a sweet looking tele-ish instrument. Bill sold me my Dr. Z Rt. 66 back in the day...a truly great guy, and it looks like his guitars are the truth :)

    Abergdahl, is this the guitar that was supposed to give you an all-in-one package? I think you wanted something like Jazz-Box tones plus rock/blues tones? Does it sound as great as it looks? It´s beautiful...

    Listening to the clips of this guitar was mind-boggling. That is not a normal guit!

    Congrats Anders, you've got a phenomenal instrument there.

    Damnit Anders, that thing is crazy! the clips sounds like a full body jazz box, and in the bridge like a 335/paul type of thing, I think you might just have the ultimate jazz/blues chameleon

    And the "hint of burst" finish is beautifull! Bill is truly a gifted builder!

    Grattis till din coolaste gitarr någonsin!

    I hate it. This is the first time I have a major GAS-attack because of a Chapin. Damned.....
