Seeing I paid this off last week, I thought it was time to post it.

With my heart set on a 24 fret JJ (or possibly PJ), I went to Brooklyn for a sound sample.  After a "quick" three hours, my mind was made up.  It was a Will Lee all the way!    Wink


The specs are to be:

Will Lee with flamed maple/swamp ash body finished natural in lacquer
Flamed maple fretboard
Hum canceling pickups
Chrome hardware
Tort pickguard
PortaBag
Light SS Blue Label strings


And here's the body:

Thanks.  I saw that body while at their shop.  It looked too good to pass up.

I made a few changes after the initial order but I think I'm all set now.  It's just the waiting.

There has been much comment on NYC necks being nitro finish. What about the body paint? Is it also nitro or a type of poly ? I'm not sure I've heard definitive reasoning for the choice of neck & body finish. Thanks.

Blair, body finish is thin poly. You could custom order nitro in the past, but it's not an option anymore.

Looks great, Timothy. As much as I like natural finish, this burst really enhances this beautiful piece of spalted maple.

It's funny that it takes roughly the same amount of time to have a baby as it does to have a Sadowsky made.

Roger,
Is there by any chance a film of some sort over the top finish of a sprayed body, as a protection perhaps?
Thanks.

Last time I checked, that was called a pickguard!
The finish is the film that protects the wood.
You want a film to protect the film?
Seriously, not sure what you are asking for---
