    Looks great! In the summer heat I sometimes wish I had bought a lighter color like yours.

    Awesome! Will that be a wrap or did you find someone that is going to paint it?

    Never understood that style. I'm sure there's a purpose, but it looks like it would guarantee one sunburned ear. It does look cool though.

    All it needs is a split rear window. If GM ever made one I'd be all over it.

    so they could carry their rifles (strapped) without knocking their hats off...caveat; uneven tan...advantage; other soldiers (and civilians) could tell regiments and where they were stationed even without the hat being on...

    Epi Blackbird/Thunderbird Pickups

    Hi all.

    I have received my Blackbird today... finally. First. Can I have a number and officially join the group?

    Can you guys looks at the photos of my bridge pickup. It looks like it slopes towards the nut. It should be level right? It slopes towards the nuts. The photo doesn’t do it justice, slopes worse in real life. I tryed slackening it and retightening bit sits the same way. How much gap to you guys have between pickup and string. Thanks
