    So I did a little road trip yesterday. Private Stock Style




    Not a very long drive and well worth it . So I get to the factory and walk in to meet with Brian ( Brian's Guitars ) and Paul Miles and they take me up to " The Room " or you can call it the wood library. I can't remember how many times I said this is like being a kid in a candy store.



    So we talk and for a little about what I want to do for my first Private Stock and I just said I want the top to be unique. So Brian said ok well start looking ( kind of overwhelming at this point ). Everyone is pulling wood a putting tops on the table and then this got pulled.


    I tried to keep looking for more tops but this one definately just kept coming out as the winner. So here is the final kit all layed out on the table.


    This thing is gonna be a rock & roll MACHINE 24 frets of Honduran rosewood with a little brazilian sprinkled on top being brought to you by the way od some 59/09 goodness.

    Allow me to add a few more photos if you dont mind!
    It was a pleasure Matt, thanks again for making the trip! This build is going to be really amazing, that top has so much figure that we couldnt capture in photos. I cant wait to see it with the stain on.

    Nice! I can picture that with so many colors. Would be tough for me to decide on which one, but it sounds like you have a plan.

    A number of people scoring their first PS lately. Excellent selections. That top is out of control.

    Color? Inlays?

    All I can say as far as the color is that it won't be the frostbite like I was thinking because Paul M. said that because of the top that finish wouldn't look right and who am I to not trust what Paul says. The inlays are apparently a newer material that they got in that is going to match up up with my color pretty good I think. But I have to leave something to the imagination

    Holy isht... Pants = changed

    If that was my guitar, that top would be screaming for one of the new "glow" or "glow burst" finishes. But any way you slice it, that top is just a friggin' monster!!!
    Heh...check it out. Under my name, it says "member".

    That one is very deserving of a glow or Dragon's Breath finish!

    Honduran with a Brazzy FB. I have one in the oven with the same combo. There is something special about those Honduran blanks when you pick'em up, hold 'em, tap'em...you know it's gonna be good!!

    That is going to be a magnificent guitar - I love the ribbon mahogany back, too.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.
