    Barnseys spalted ES-1s

    12 months ago a friend cameover and showed me the pitbull website and said we should build a guitar each. That was the start of something that has become somewhere between a hobby and an obsession. In a year ive built an es1tl, es2v, gr1sf and im finishing of the rc1m, 4 guitars in a year? I was out of t/o and needed some more to finish and couldnt help myself so I've ended up with this turning up today with the t/o, Click image for larger version.

    Nice grain Adam.

    Coolangatta Gold looks good on spalted tops should you choose to use a DT stain.
