No worries my friend! It's nice to see the before and after photos no matter how much time has passed.

My ST300 "Angel" was posted 4 different times.


The first time, I looked at the pickup/bridge/fretboard and said, "OMG, I think that's mine."
Image

The next 2 appeared the same day, and I said, "OMG, I HOPE that's mine."
Image

Image

The last shot, I said, "MINE MINE MINE MINE!!!!"
Image

I didn't even notice for a couple days that the center AP11 was the wrong color (black instead of cream)--but when I did, and mentioned it here, Mike Jones noticed, and hooked me up.

Love me some Carvin.

Since starting my run of builds with Carvin I haven't really followed other manufacturers, but this comes as no surprise. Similarly, getting my Musicians Friend and Sweetwater catalogs have been correspondingly less exciting. But I noticed that Gibson has been 'upping their game' with a slew of flame-top models and more vivid colors. They look nice, and it seems like they are trying to approach the beauty factor that we (Kieselites/Carvinites) accept every day... but at >$4000 price points. By the way, let's keep this all a secret. :wink:

Just realized there was a club for early-updates... last time (likely, but I promise) to stop posting this guy.

TL60 Floyd Rose

Quilt Maple Top, Black Cherry
Flame Maple Neck, Walnut Body
Inline headstock with Walnut headstock overlay, no locking nut

The intermediate pics have some naptha thrown on to show how much the quilt will pop. In real life, it's so deep that it looks like a photo quilt.
