That third one - purple top - would be really lovely in a natural, or TB, or VF finish. Really nice layering and striation on that top.


Actually it is an ash top. AFAIK, the first LPstyle guitars worldwide with an one pcs. ash top. Incredible lucent sound - extremly fast attack and response.
Some samples more...

Problem is that said females tend to go for Fender designs most of the time (in my experience...) maybe due to ergonomics, weight, recognition and price issues.


Well, women are always right - surely you've been told that before?


It seems you're right, guys ...



BTW Gottfried ... do you really think that those ugly pieces of wood will sell ?
