INCOMING - NOW NGD! MYSTERY REVEALED! (Custom Electric XII content)

Post by SignoftheDragon » Mon Oct 12, 2020 10:18 am

Got a new bird on the way... Care to guess what it might be?

Just a sexy preview peek at the neck grain:

My hands are itching to get 'round that neck- hurry up and get here already!

A lil' more teasing:

I'm in love with the birdseye and swirl.

The horn and tuners/headstock shape is making me think "electric XII" but I have no idea who the builder might be!

Looks amazing. Is that a tobacco burst or does the colour continue solidly around the front as well?

And who's the builder?

Color is Oxblood Metallic (A la TVLJM 1.0)

Matching headstock... B&B... custom built to my specs by Texas Toast Guitars in (I'm thinking Grand Junction?) Colorado.

I'm counting down the days/hours/minutes/seconds/etc. until I can hear her sing!

(I only have one small folder of photos from the builder to tide me over till it arrives, so Imma just post them sloooooooowwwwwwllllyyyyy to draw it out while I wait)

That is super classy. Just the thing for a swinging, sophisticated folk gig.

Awesome, I have a Texas Toast Marauder. This is gonna be one hell of a guitar, and that colour is just perfect!

Sorry- I may have visited GJ in the last year or so before Covid, so all of my thoughts of Colorado seem to point there. :whistle:

Back to the task at hand- MORE PHOTO!

This is actually my second Texas Toast XII- I love the first one so much that I had to commission one to my specs!

Dream coming true right here...

I’ve been watching a lot of their videos during lockdown. They seem like fun guys and I’d love one of their guitars someday. This one looks amazing :-*

Good call on those locking Hipshots there... that will certainly ease your twelve string experience!

Great guitar.

I wasn't sure what to do with them at first (on the other one) and it took me a bit to understand how they work, but now I am SOLD on them- at least in this format. Blows the standard-style tuners on the Alternate Reality XII out-the-water.

I heartily recommend working with Sonichris there at Texas Toast- good communication and great custom work at a surprisingly affordable rate. BUY THEIR GEETS!
