    It is so ugly and "ALA Liberace" that I will get a dancing pole to go with it.

    Can you order a 22 fret neck from the CS?

    Pretty sure if you do a custom build (vs. buying an already built CS) you can get a 22 fret neck.

    I wanted a more vintage sounding guitar.

    I sold my 1991 Ultra to a friend that is like a brother to me, so I can come pick it up at any time, but my Ultra sounds bigger than any strat I have heard.

    I was offered Suhr's and anything in between and I never sold it until last week when I went crazy and sold my Ultra, my LP and my Bogner Amp. I just felt I had too many things and wanted to "un-complicate" my life.

    I am happy I let the Bogner Go, but I miss the LP and I still have the Ultra with me, which has been paid in half.

    What's going on here? The 2nd picture shows the amazing checking that looks like broken glass. The 1st pic doesn't have the checking but has the same dings. Did you send it back to the CS for the checking? It also appears the cases are different. What's the story, we have a right to know! (tee he he)

    I suspect its purely the flash of the camera. The checking on ny CS is very hard to capture on phone without the flash.
