OR or... the first semi-hollow Aries? :)



LOL beveled semi hollow is such a ridiculous idea, it might just work!


There are beveled acoustics, so.... ;)

Oh, boy...going by the info on the band, I'm thinking for sure either a surf/searfoam green or maybe the new light blue, chrome hardware, MOP and white accents, likely....'hog body maybe? HSS, perhaps? :)

Not fair. We all share our specs here. Just do a slow reveal of the specs. Body wood first.
Here's my guess
The Newman special
A6X
Ash body w bevel att
Ash top Surf green matching headplate
Gloss
Birdseye fretboard maple neck 22fret
SS med jumbo frets
Lithium bridge 2 ap11s
Chrome

Am I close?

Old school hot rod theme is my guess
Add a middle pup and go three single lithiums (not visible from the builder)

If this is genuinely bugging people, I can share specs.
I don't want to annoy anyone.
