Understood. The only reason I went with a gold logo was that I was paying tribute to this 57 Chevy... my new band's mascot. Black, some white, lots of chrome, and a gold logo.

Now I see it! PERFECTION!!!!!!!!!

Very nice and classy..!!

I love the single lithiums as well...although I do like the neck AP11 better than the neck lithium....I think it has a bit more grit to it.

It didn't come stock with it. I think it would have been an option 50 if I'd asked for it.
Someday I'd like to get one of their push/pull potentiometers so I can incorporate a bridge add circuit myself.

Thanks, Jesse!

Are you also the one who takes the studio pictures that go on the website?

I'd really like to get ahold of any hi-res pictures that you guys took.

While you're opening up this can of worms I'd like the same thing! I had a denim green denim CS6 in not long ago.

We have a photographer who takes all those studio shots. I take all the other "phone" shots like the one of those two headstocks.

Handsome axe for a handsome band!

The first thing that popped in my head when I saw the color scheme was Marcel Marceau.

Very cool. How you like that bevel? Comfy as joggers and no undies right? 8)

Had a band rehearsal with it last night. It is indeed a comfy guitar.
All guitars are a little different though. Still getting used to playing it.
Never had such a small bridge as that Hipshot. Still trying to find the idea place to rest the picking hand. :)
