    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.

    If that is my guitar, that looks just about finished. Wouldn't they be shipping that in the next week or two?

    I would say they nailed it.

    Gotta let that nitro cure, my guess is you will see it in 4 weeks

    I hope that's the guitar. If so, yeah, they nailed it. Can't wait. Maybe Shawn can take a peek at the neck heel next week and let me know if it matches my description, if there's a bird on the heel then it kind of has to be my guitar. At this point I guess given how it matches what I ordered, it's 95% my guitar, what puzzles me is they never sent wood/stain samples, and they told my dealer they would.

    I don't care, if that's the piece, I'll be ecstatic. Maybe they just know this and they trust their own judgement. If it makes the customers happy in the end, it works, the rest is white noise.
