    Besides all the bass stuff, we also do a healthy guitar biz. Anytime a special guitar piece comes through, I'll post it here. I'm sure ya'll can appreciate it, and ya never know who might stumble on this thread and find something they "need". :ninja::D

    Let's start with a gorgeous Suhr Exotic that just came in. WOW on the top & WOW on the neck! Eh?

    Holy wow. That thing is gorgeous! I know less about guitar than I do about bass, but man...that one is something! I love gawking at Andersons at my local store, and Suhr seems to have a nice take on that recipe. Wow look at that neck.

    OMG! Is the neck and fingerboard 1 piece?

    Unreal! That really is a work of art; and not a Garfunkel.

    NAh, 2-piece neck. But it's a GREAT match.

    Here's a lovely PRS that just arrived! This is actually one of the cheaper ones, it doesn't have what PRS calls a "10" Top. 10 Tops are generally very uniform in color & figure. Me? I'd take a wild top like this any day, even it cost more (which it doesn't, this one costs less).

    Very cool vintage vibe!

    No real comparison but that really reminds me of the Fender Mustang guitars they were making in the late 60's. That was when I first started playing guitar and I wanted one of those so very bad! I thought that they were so cool! :cool:

    Thanks for these vids, Greg. I just now stumbled upon them and am impressed. I love a guitarist who can kick ass in all genres, this guy seems to do just that in the demo vids. Very likable chap, Cheers.

    Holy smokes - Suhr knocked this special order out of the park!

    The headstock is a gloss black. Sorry for all the glare on it in the photo... :rollno::meh:

    Yessir, that's probably the prettiest blue finish I've ever seen (I'm sure the top helps).

    More greatness in trans-blue, this time from Michael Tuttle. I said "Yowsa" when I unboxed this one this morning!
