If it is to be, it is up to me.

Yes, thanks, and yes. :) The neck is finished in ambered satin nitro.



Sorry, I must have missed that page 1 reference when I was scanning the thread. Got any nice portrait-style shots of it? Might look good in the book, eh?

Paul, there are these in the register:

http://www.rickresource.com/register/viewitem.php?id=19358&bl=%2Fregister%2Findex.php%3Fsearch%3Dtrue%26mine%3Dtrue

If you want some nicer ones I can take some new for you; just let me know. This is becoming quite the popular choice in non-factory finishes, with about a half dozen having been completed in Paul's shop. He calls it AQBBR - Aqua Blueburst.

Good on you folks. Looks like a good time was had by all. Live that Carl Wilson that's in some of the pix. And also Kira's new little candy apple baby. Will be looking for the album on iTunes soon I suspect: Live at BARC 2012! :lol: :D

Thanks for the images of a nice weekend!

That's very nice. Paul's doing a great job with these. Gary's 12st acoustic is stunning to behold. :shock:

You have to see an AQBBR in person to get the effect. There's just enough purple to create a dramatic flip flop when it moves in the light. 8)

My car in front of my friends' house in Newark. It was great to see and spend a little time with them, too!

At a rest stop on the way back. Great weather for driving (well, until the 210 ...)
