Maybe not $3k nice :lol:


And veneer? Seriously?

... and that, i suspect, is why all the BFRs have black backs and black bursted edges.

Although it's probably a bit more than a "veneer"... it's likely a 1/4" bent top, but with the deep bevels, it gets cut away from the edges quite a bit.

Gorgeous colour though, and it IS nice to see a BFR without an opaque black burst around the edges.

Agreed, it looks like 1/4" or 3/16", nothing wrong with that. Looks phenomenal, IMO.

Yeah, you really have to look at how thick it is where it wraps around the arm contour.

The "tape" on the back is a vinyl cling decal with the barcode they use for tracking them through production.

I just fucking love that colour :lol:

Now to remind myself that I neither like the necks on those things, nor have $3000, and no amount of whoring myself out will change either of those facts.
Same here. Color is glorious...

... But these guitars do absolutely nothing for me. When I tried one, it felt like a freakin' great and very well built guitar, but just not for me at all. I just don't like their overall look and their necks.

Would tap!

It's funny because when these JP's first came out I really didn't like the drastic departure from the Ibby JP models. I thought they were ugly. They have certainly grown on me.

Not for $3k.....but I'd certainly play the shit out of one if it was given to me.

That's almost the exact colour I wanted to refinish my Hellraiser C-7 when I had it, maybe slightly darker.
