I may have said this before about another guitar, but I do believe that is the most beautiful guitar I have ever seen.  I withdraw any previous claims.  that is amazing.... :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :?

Maybe it's just me but the colour of the maple headstock (it's shade / tint I mean) is really well balanced with the blue? Anyone else know what I mean?

it looks great!

but knowing Doug, he'll go for the Dots & Binding, as it would be a better match for the parts dates of the rest of the guitar :)



the blocks and binding look great though, don't get me wrong! :)

Thanks for all the input.

I'm keeping it. It's too damn nice to not let it live. I'll keep an eye out for a '66 neckplate and pots for it, and I still need vintage gray pickups. Right now, the pups are the ONLY thing on it not vintage.

Maybe my next project will be the '65 FR D&B JM that I wanted.

But I still want to build a vintage Jaguar and the Hardtail Jag that's been on my books for awhile now...   :-[

Something about that color lends itself well to to the B&B neck
glimmertwin - I know! It reminds me of that pic of the Maruader that we always see. It just seems so typical of the early CBS era.

i think you're making the right move.

When I saw the first pics of the guitar assembled I was thinking... I NEED me one of those...

I couldn't be more jealous, it looks shockingly good.
