I think it looks amazing the way it is. I keep staring at the pictures; it's captivating.

Just about everyone has said, "orange" when asked to identify the color. The one exception was "tangerine."

orange

orange

orange

orange

The color is perfect to me, but I want to see some more coverage at the centers. It's hard to tell since our monitors are not all calibrated the same, but this is a wonderful color and it's going to look soo good with the Skyway tremolo on it.

I'd also like another blast of orange around the edge to slightly intensify the color.

Hope you like it!

This is really turning out to be a interesting guitar. I look forward to seeing it with the hardware.

Getting close:
setup

And even a little closer:

Still fine tuning this first installation of the Skyway trem. Still needs the humcanceller pickup and the Series electronics (just some test controls in there now). Still needs the final calibration by Ron. But, we are getting close to the finish on this one!

I see this is waiting for Ron to Calibrate. Is Ron the only person at Alembic who Calibrates the Series instruments?

This one actually is not awaiting Ron's calibration (humcanceller is not held in with tape), but yes, Ron exclusively calibrates the Series I and Series II instruments.
