    Hey TGP community,

    Its been a while since I've posted but a lot has happened in the last few months - moved from FL to WA state, build a new shop from the ground up, and recently debuted a new model of guitar.

    Electronics: Alpha push/pull pots, NOS PIO cap, Switchcraft jack and switch

    Pickguard: custom gold plexi

    Finish: Nitro pearl white with gold highlights and binding


    These are just the specs for the pearlescent white Bethel, but the options abound. Right now I'm building another Bethel for a client that will have have a vintage burst and McNelly Cornucopia pups. Here's some pics before it goes into the booth this weekend...
