    the journeyman finish is great. a few dings, paint cracks, faded paint, rusted saddles, etc. but nothing major.

    Also, for those wondering about neck size...the mid 60s oval C on this is definitely slimmer than the necks on the Original 60s (I have a AO tele and it's chunkier for sure).

    Great choice. LPB + mint green.. can’t beat it.

    All 3 of your potential options were winners, for real.

    I spec’d my own team built and opted for the ‘66 Oval C profile. I’ve never had a more comfortable neck. Had my eye on the sunburst hardtail at Dave’s and wondered how close the two neck profiles are. I ended up custom ordering a guitar from Mario Martin instead.
    Anyways. Your new guitar is beautiful and I’m glad you picked this one!

    such a hard decision. almost went with the green at the last minute. trusted my gut and my original "dream guitar" idea for the lake placid blue. i've had several sunbursts in the past so I had to get something different.

    Awesome!
    Similar to what I specced out actually, but I've been waiting for a potential quote for 3 or 4 months now :eek: (I'm guessing the delay is related to the current world situation)
    I absolutely need to have a LPB Strat some day!

    I'm not an expert by any means, but I've been given to understand it pertains to the amount of figuring in the wood (AA, AAA, etc. doesn't just apply to flame figuring). If you won't my personal opinion however, it's just a way (dare i say ploy?) to add more premium cost to an instrument.

    Congrats! I used to have one like it (from Dave's Guitars) with the same specs, only in 3TSB.
