    This thread is full of landmines, I won't say anything else about that because it's childish behaviour I see in here and you guys are grown men.


    More to the point, great looking guitar OP, I like the combination. Only thing I'd say, don't attach that clip on tuner right over the decal, looking at it just makes me nervous.

    Take care and enjoy that guitar!:thumb:

    LOL! Yes, indeed. The entertainment value of this (and it's sister) forum is very high. :thumb:

    Anyone who builds partscasters for resale will soon be out of money. I have two that I love and will never sell. I also have a Fender CS that I used as a blue print for the builds. I’m not sure that CS is the best playing/sounding of the three. Just an observation.

    Thought I’d say that for some of the members here who were gonna back at you with it.

    Doesn’t surprise me, honestly. Which is sad considering the price of a custom shop.

    Guitar is awesome and I’m not worried about what’s it worth enough said. Anyway here’s new acquisition that showed up yesterday. Haven’t plugged it in yet kids were going to bed last night. Blankenship fat boy JR. It’s like a hybrid I guess between a Princeton and a champ. IMG_0080.jpg IMG_0081.jpg

    I’m a semi decent amateur player I don’t know what good my playing would do through an I phone video. To the real ear even of a amateur bedroom rockstar the tone is magnificent though. My friend who is a professional player is coming to town in a couple weeks. He wants to play through the new rig. So maybe I will see what I can do for you guys. I think he has some better recording equipment as his house.
