    That's what I was thinking. It looks kind of like a smaller bass is bursting out of a larger one. I mean that in a good way!

    Whoa !!!! I've seen a lot of really nice Vanquishes, especially Ben Jones'. I realize everyone has their own tastes and preferences, but for me this one has to be one of the nicest if not the nicest one I've ever seen. Nice job picking out that combination, looks great.

    Thanks Neddihem. Funny you mentioned Ben Jones' Vanquish. I think that's a really sharp one and actually inspired my decision to use flamed maple with the blackburst. I really love how mine turned out but you're right, there are a lot of nice Vanquishes out there.

    Celinder 72, I'll post that shot (and more) once she arrives.

    Carvin told me they can't change the string ferrules in the back from chrome to black without cracking the finish. Not to happy about that but whatever.
