    I was at the factory yesterday and I asked Paul Miles if I could see my guitar in process. I thought there might be a chance that it was stained at this point, possible hanging upside down in the meat locker...
    Paul greeted me simply with the headstock veneer with the eagle inlay. As you can see from the pic above, that's about all there was to show. While it wasn't much, I was so pumped up when I left because we got a chance to talk about it some more & I got a preview of what's to come. I think it's gonna be a great one!

    So to answer your question Shawn, yes I absolutely love seeing my guitar(s) in this thread!!! I hope to see some more in the coming weeks!

    Not at all. I think it's great! I'd have asked you to post pics of mine except you made it clear at the begining of PSF that you were not taking requests, which I fully understand. (Plus, seeing how complete it is gives you an idea of when you need to have the money ready for the UPS guy. )

    Love that combination of woods on yours, Daniel!

    It's both exciting and a source of pride to see it pictured on this thread.

    Yes. I was going add that I am confident this will be a great one for another reason- you picked the top.

    Thanks Les! The figure on yours looks fantastic. It's one thing to see that much figure in a "posed" shot with the lighting "just right" but to see that much in a causual shot of the guitar sitting in a rack, wow.

    Big "no way!!!" to it diminishing the thrill for me personally, I think seeing those update shots that happen to have your guitar in it is like a bonus! It's like getting a sneak peak at that Christmas present you REALLY want and already knew was coming, fuels the excitement seeing what was once a few pieces of wood taking shape into that final piece of win at the finish line!

    Also just wanted to drop another big thank-you for keeping this thread going every week Shawn! This is one of the best guitar threads on any forum I read, so many awesome pieces popping up each week and seeing them in the various stages is always a treat so thanks for doing what you do, you rock sir!
