Long live Excalliber

Thanks Ap. Are you ready for this?... It's plain maple. But it has some really funky character, stripes, beauty marks and such. Just luck of the draw, and I think Carvin really matched a good piece to go with the purple finish.

Jlaura, I have made no fewer than 3 tries at a tone demo and gave up each time. :|
I was getting nasty hum in my recording which, after buying a new mixer, I found out it was the light dimmers in my house. Two new dimmers later and I still have hum. I have to record during daytime! On my last attempt I discovered that one of my frets was high and got fed up with the project. :wall: I'm getting my fret levelled soon so maybe then I'll try. :D

And Mr. Notpokey, you know the respect and admiration is mutual! :applause: :applause: :applause:

After making it but before shipping, Carvin should have shaken you down for more money! :laughhard:

I also love a little detail that Coda requested for this one, the black paint around the heel. It's a small detail that just looks so perfect with this guitar. Heck, the whole thing is perfect (except for a wee fret issue) but that's fixable.

Cheers,

On topic (for once :lol: )

I still love that trans purple. That wood grain with satin is so sexy :D

Well ... since Gumbynotpokey called for a bump your favorite threads this weekend, I'd have to say this beauty is still one of my favorites! I just love everything about this guitar ... and I really hope Coda can make a summer trip up to big bad Ontario for a weekend of jamming and sharing a few pints!!! Small print ... must bring excaliber.

Cheers and enjoy.
