I get more crowd compliments on that guitar's looks than any other I've owned. It gets noticed a lot. Thinking of building another one just like it with a Floyd trem and Piezo saddles. Put in a active preamp for good acoustic sounds and maybe an onboard tuner. That would be my gap filling guitar.
Oh my. Wow. I don't get jealous when I see AAAAAAAAAAA tops and fingerboards most of the time, because I figure I could have that if I were willing to cough up the bucks. But I have to admit fighting a twinge of jealousy just at the thought that you guys get to see em before they even make it to the block. Spectafreakintacular.
