So I got my McCarty back from the PTC yesterday and all I can say is that I'm completely floored. It is indeed a new guitar: DGT refret, Black Gold Wrap refinish and Rosewood Treatment of Extreme Awesomeness!
It was pretty difficult to capture the nuances of the new stain properly with the camera. I know this type of character in the wood isn't for everyone, but I absolutely love it! Also the finish is satin.
Just wanted to thank Shawn and the PTC for their hard work! Everything is of outstanding workmanship and quality.
