    Quilt certainly tears out easier than flamed maple. It's also harder to sand because it has a tendency to get lumpy, as does Swamp Ash.

    Pretty sure that's just masking tape around the edge of the body?

    No, I was referencing a hair style from the '80's. The stain is called "Cross Beach Fade"

    Man, I surely hope so, that's really what I ordered that's fantastic. They were supposed to send wood sample jpgs, but if that's the guitar, no worries : ). Looks like a cocobolo fretboard too. How many PS DGT guitars could they have in line to build just like that? I guess there is a good chance that's the guitar.

    Maybe Shawn could comment on whether that dark cherryburst DGT above (just underneath the 'Oh My' comment) has a bird on the neck heel, if so, that would probably have to be my guitar. Looks exactly like both the color sample jpeg I sent them and the wood grain pattern example I asked them to go after. That would be perfect. That was back in mid-November, so maybe the timing is right, if a bit early based on the delivery time they originally quoted me.

    That has to be your guitar. November order? I would say they are running behind, haha! That's what I love about PS, from concept to creation, they can crank out your dream guitar in most cases in 3 months!

    It is such a rush to get a glimpse of your guitar while it is in process!

    The top of that DGT stopped me dead in my tracks. I wasn't sure if the topcoat was still wet, so instead of risking it, I didn't pull it off the rack.

    Well, here are the jpgs we forwarded Tina for the color and wood grain desired:

    Wood grain:



    Color to match:



    Cocobolo fretboard, Artist style birds (like on an MEQ or SC-58), 12th fret style bird on the neck heel, cocobolo headstock verneer, flame maple matching cavity covers on back and truss rod cover, ebony tuning pegs, hybrid gold/sliver hardware, otherwise like a stock DGT.

    So if that's not my guitar somebody ordered a PS just like it around the same time. Hope that's it, that guitar is stunning.
