    Belman.
    But the std Belman shape looks a whole lot better than any pseudofender, and the zebrawood one Heath linked looks even better again.
    And you get to support fine local luthiers.

    The first one looked like an MTD Kingston to me....it's the pickguard and upper horn I think.


    Is there a Belman website??

  10. Belman for whats been said before, particularly for supporting the local industry.

    Although I'd agree with Dharmabass, go the standard rather than the classic if you can.

    Mmmm yummy. I'm a sucker for the light wood with a simple black pickguard.

    Out of curiosity, what are their prices like?
