That's what it will be, yup.

My custom singlecut 7 is in the works, it'll be green. :)

Oh, and I approve of trans blue. Very, VERY cool. Does this mean that it'll be a coloured, clear coat or dyed, and then clear coated? If that makes any sense at all to you, sir...

I think dyed, but i'm not 100% sure. I'll ask the builder.

also, i decided to go with mahogany for the neck because i really do love the les paul tone - even if it's dark as all get out haha. I played a PRS CE a couple nights ago, damn that thing would cut like a knife.. if i wasnt jamming with a guy on a tele!

Looking forward to the progress pics once the parts are gathered :D

Mmm... whale blue...
:yesway: it will be gorgeous.

I've confirmed the change to the mahogany neck, and just stuck between using the Fralin PAF's he has, the JB/59 combo I originally wanted, or dimarzrio 36th anni's.

I just want to see what maple top I'm going to get - I think i have at least a couple weeks to wait and find out.
