Well fiesta was a good choice even though the red head was incorrect, I couldn't resist

Man that looks very similar to the tort on my JM.

I like it too. I think the lack of contrast is what makes it look so cool.

It looks like it's soaked up some serious UV.
Q. Are we not men?

I dig the pickguard/fiesta combo but it's your guitar.

More importantly, how does it sound/play??

I'm not sure if I'm digging the pickguard, I think it might need to be brown tort or mint....
I don't know. The first time I saw this I was like "too red! too red!" but after looking at it 4 or 5 times I dig it. It's a little like tomato soup and I freakin' love tomato soup.

It's comforting you know, but sassy.

It needs work, probably a new nut and some fret work, so I haven't really got to enjoy it yet....

That's a beautiful guitar.
Can't wait to see it completely finished.
