    Much more fun to have Bud do what he does best!!! At most maybe give him an indication of the base colors and let him go!

    Absolutely. Why would you want a duplicate when you can have an original?

    We just collaborated with Bud on a fourth Metal guitar. I didn’t get permission from the owner to post pics, so I’ll let him do it if he chooses.

    IIRC, Paul Miles (Director of Private Stock) did the Metal Tribute guitars.

    Paul Miles did the paint job, Marc Quigley took the photos

    Nope! I cannot take credit for Bud's work. I can only be accused of being the messenger

    The 4th Bud Davis Metal has surfaced

    I like the simplicity. Traditional Metal Model stripes are a "can't lose" decision.

    I also like how he didn't just go for the white and blue combo. The fade to gold is clean.
