Off the shelf like hotcakes I am sure. They are stunning.

Not to get the cauldron of controversy boiling, but to me, that is a real beauty. Given a choice of returning Ruby as a stock color or Walnutburst, I'd personally go with this. (I know, too late, Ruby is already in) That aside, beautiful job. 25 people are going to have some real prizes.

The neck and back of the body is exquisite. This finish is a keeper in my books. Regarding the cauldron "Hubble bubble toil and trouble ..." The Factory has really turned it up to 11 with Walnutburst.

Yes, but 80 years equals Ruby anniversary, not Walnut!

Walnuts are truly under-appreciated and make brownies so much better but as anniversary gems they don't last long in pendants, that's for sure. :lol:

Both are beautiful finishes and colors. Keep 'em coming. What's the next factory special one-off you guys are working on? Any hints?

Those look excellent...if only they were 21-fretted... Finish is nice though, well done.
