Beautiful.
I have one of BMGs 'budget' ones in green - in a thread somewhere else in this forum.
Anyone in the UK who might be interested, my local guitar shop has a used BMG Red Super - not quite a Guyton, but as close a Sir Brian's company makes 'em. They're asking a grand over RRP, but as it says in the ad, you won't have to wait three years for it to arrive.

Yeah the Supers are well made and probably the best value for authenticity vs price.

Yeah :-D I think he modelled the neck on his acoustic that he was used to playing. I have smallish hands and it's not that difficult to play. You get used to it. Maybe that's why my perfect neck profile is the Chunky C Shape on the R6, 7 and 8s.
