Burn Unit

There are some great grain lines that go the length of the neck and finger board, almost a "ribbon" effect. Very cool.
Sorry for all the pics, but I got a new camera.   :icon_jokercolor:
The pics don't show it well, or at all, but you can see the flame top through the transparent brown sides, sort of like the clear masked binding.
I also wanted to show how the flame changes tone and color as you move around the guitar.
It's hard to tell, but there are amber streaks in the flame that come and go as you change angles when looking at it.
Very three dimensional and alive.  :headbang1:

Enjoy.

Played it last night at one of our shows. Plays and sounds great. Hard to believe that it feels and sounds like my Les Pauls (other than scale length of course). Nice, warm and full. You would not know there was a Floyd on it by the tone it gets. I'm extremely happy with it. This is my rock/metal guitar, full and thick. My Tele is my chimey rock guitar. Having both of them is an awesome combination.
