    NPSD: DGT 245 Burl-esque!!

    Wow…. I have been very lucky to see so many spectacular guitars in the last few years. So many that I have to admit that sometimes I can take it for granted! But my goodness this guitar is in a league of its own!! I am struggling to capture it… I will have to try again in better light! I might need to do a video to capture the full effect of the 1 piece.


    A bit of background…. I made a whistle stop trip to see the Indiana boys in January when Paul Miles showed me this piece of wood…. I had to have it!!From that the idea for Burl-Esque came about!!
    She is a DGT 245, 1 piece Burl Maple, Ziricote neck, Ebony Board with a custom fade finish wraps around the body… matching back plates….. even the tuners are in the gradual fade!
    Such a well rounded tone…. man it sounds lovely. I’m in awe tonight!!

    Burlesque!!


    Headstock and tuners...

    I was already hooked on the early teasers.
    This is a brilliant example of what a guitar can be.

    Wow! Just magnificent! I've been waiting to see this and finally here she is. Nothing short of perfection. This is certainly one of the best, if not the best, PS's I've ever seen! Congrats!

    Timmy, I have some bad news...

    Hang it up. No more PS builds, no more acquisitions based on beauty. You've reached the summit - there's nothing better. Nothing classier. Say "good night everyone" *mic drop

    Just wow...
