    Some Light Honey for Dark Times.... Another New TB Replica!

    Hope everyone is staying as safe as possible... Im in NY and its not the greatest situation, but working from home and hanging in...

    So I have to admit that Im still obsessed with the replica thing, love the process of ordering, choosing wood, color, etc.... Of course I have to sell to buy, but I dont get attached to guitars.... easy come and easy go!... This one I ordered a couple years ago and picked up in January... I wanted this one to have that old look, lightly flamed with a faded honeyburst... Tom nailed it!... And the usual, old growth mahoganay, brazilian, the right glues and plastics, and super hard nitro... guitar currently has ReWind Electric PAF1s in it... Fantastic sounding guitar with great swell and harmonics.... Love it!... Here's a bunch of pix and a cheesy video...

    What a beauty!

    I would love to have a TB. Is there a long lead time? And how does his Retrospec model compare to the LP replica?
