    Well i finally did it. I had a tough year financially, and sold most of my gear to keep my family and mortgage afloat. I have been playing an Epiphone gothic Thunderbird borrowed from my pastor. While I am thankful i had something to keep up my chops on and continue playing on, i am so ready for NBD soon.

    Specs:
    Alder/Maple
    Quilt Maple Top
    Deep Dragonburst
    Gloss on the body/Tung-Oil on the neck
    5 piece maple neck with 2 walnut stripes
    Birdseye Maple fretboard and headstock (non-painted)
    Stainless med-jumbo frets
    Cream pup covers
    J99A pups
    Master vol/blend
    2 band eq with passive tone control
    Chrome hardware with neck pup cover
    No inlays side dots only.

    I am really looking forward to this!
     
  2. Whoa! That should be stunning. Worth the wait I bet...

    I hope so, I was going to go with a more affordable fender-esque color scheme, but I figured I'd go all in

    I have, how did you guess... Lol. It will be almost the same sans the inlays add a chrome neck pup cover
