    Brazilian rosewood at wildwood?

    I like it to. It triggered an old memory of this color Midnight Manhattan back when I started getting into LP's. It's not close to the WW but the washed-out side triggered that long ago memory.

    2016 Mike McCready '59 Burst Aged/Signed #3

    Been out of the game for awhile but jumped back in a big way and grabbed #3 from Wildwood (Thanks, Lance!). #9 had a really nice top as well but this one was closer to Mike's 'Burst in look, in my opinion. Dave's Guitar has #2 and it's a very cool top and color but again, didn't resemble as...
