I'm ready for an update.
The guitar will be here next week. No photos to share. Sorry.
It did take longer than I thought. Not exactly sure why, but to be honest, I have been so busy, I never pushed him.
He has been really easy to work with.
Pictures etc, next week.
Okay, the guitar has arrived.
Here are a few quick pics with my phone. Sorry the quality of them is soo bad.
I will post better ones, once they become available
That is a very nice looking guitar.
Well done, sir.
I got a chance to play the guitar. Not on my fave amp, on my old National Westwood.
Wow. It sounds fantastic. The TV Supertrons were custom wound a little hotter (I don't have the wind).
It's brighter than my other Billy Bo with Powertrons fitted in it. Less mid range, but still hot. Sounds nasty with overdrive. Still sounds fat. Gets very garagy if you want it too.
I prefer it to the sound of my Filtertron guitars, though it's consistent with them.
Plus they look so hot!
The finish on the guitar is amazing. The candy tangerine is so lush. The sparkle is just so nice, every angle looks slightly different and there is always a cool highlight somewhere.
The mix of silver and tangerine is perfect.
The binding is silver and it just rocks. Sounds like too much but it isn't. Looks like a great drum kit.
John really did an amazing job. Looks like nothing else, plays beautiful and sounds exactly likemi had hoped.
WOW !!! that is a very nice guitar. Congrats !
Thanks. I know you have been following this build. Its fun to make something that doesn't exist otherwise.
Oh yeah! That looks awesome and then some!
Wow, that looks very cool!
Love that binding.
Beautifully kitsch, and I mean that as a compliment!
Lovely looking guitar!
Now that is cool!
Yeah, the binding looks the part too!
Make one with three Dynas!
Holy Moley! That is HOT
That's a killer looking Billy Bo!
Interesting about the Supertrons. Would you say that your supertrons are just as aggressive as the powertrons but leaned out a bit?
Oh...My...Gosh!!! It's beautiful! I hope it sounds as good as it looks.
Oh my gosh, someone call the medics! I think my heart stopped, that is just beautiful!!!!!
