They should make a guitar with that shape. It hints ever so slightly at the old longhorn, but it's a nice unique shape like the Vanquish which I also thought would make a nice guitar (and they did, and it was :mrgreen: ).

Didn't someone do a photoshop of an 8-string Bromberguitar a few yers ago? :think:

i've just always loved the 12-fret Bromberg inlay. I'd put that on a guitar if available.

I always loved the look of their Metallic Platinum Bolts. This one is pretty close.

I effing love it. It's very...I don't know...50's Vegas? I'm picturing a glass ashtray that looks like the pickguard, and the metallic gold/sand is like a velvet or vinyl banquette seating (did thay have vinyl seating back then?).

I get that same vibe and the exact reasons why I hate it. :lol:
Gotta run out and buy a pack of Pall Malls .. or Victory cigs (was that a brand? - with a big V, or maybe Viceroy?). :lol:
Not to mention Lucky Strikes.

Tortus pickguards usually turn me off as either looking way over the top too busy or clashing with other colors. The only acceptable body color that works is white, and maybe, orange, IMO.

As far as gold, that's why I prefer platinum. Gold often looks ostentatious or gaudy and cheeky. Metallic gold reminds me of the cheap metallic model paints that I used when I was a kid...

Well, I thought it was funny. Up until about 3 weeks ago, I had never heard of red blanket guitars. :lol:

I'm a sucker for this combination of pickguard and finish. Is the color Kiesel's version of Fender Firemist Gold? Another jaw-dropping build from JCG. Thanks for the picture.
