26 Proteus 1 year ago Would it over the top for the headplate to be matching too? Nope. I like that.I'm also pretty serious about Dynas. But one thing I've often imagined is Dynas, in their original form factor, which mount in routs rather than surface-mounting. Without rings/bezels - like soapbar P90s. I think that's very clean-looking, would presumably allow easier height adjustment, and would be extra-double killer all the way around.I seriously doubt we're going there though; it would mean developing a different shell and mounting system. But it would hugely modernize the look of a Dyna install... I let my mind run off on a 5-minute detour into a scenario which included block fret markers with graphics on them (a la cowboy practice) depicting great moments in GDP history. There would be one with a poufed-up rockabilly mullet in honor of the Brian Setzer hair thread; one showing a can of Lemon Pledge; one showing gold piping...I'm sure we could all nominate other candidate threads-n-happenings to immortalize.We could probably lean on GDP members to design the little graphics.But it all might be a little too precious. And even if this is a flashy Jet, it shouldn't tumble over the top into kitsch. Would there be any point in having a spruce top under the Nitron? I like spruce tops. Also, I see sparkle finishes being bandied about. I love sparkle. I'd love to have a red sparkle. But most of the original impetus for this was to revive pearl. I vote we stay pearl. I'm good with any pearl so far mooted. I still have an affinity for red, but I know we're headed toward silver-blueness. Is OK. Is there such a thing as orange pearl? Would we do that?
