    Looks good.

    These are mine. They've yellowed a bit more as this was 10 years ago.

    Thanks fellas.

    For a simple one time payment!

    Those are sharp! This one started almost a canary yellow. It took some fiddling to tone it down. After looking at pictures of different ones online until I was cross eyed, it dawned on me that there are so many different variations of BSB that it doesn’t really matter.
    Anyway, I’m tickled with it. It plays and sounds great. And it has a Bare Knuckle Flat 50 set. A really great Blackguard tone.

    That to me is how a relic should be done.. very tasteful.. :thumb:

    As an aside, I recently bought a used Classic Vibe 50's Tele in Butterscotch/Blackguard and can quite honestly say, not only is it my first ever Tele (I'm 68 now :eek:) but its the best playing guitar I've had in my hands for years.. :thumb:
