:shock:

THANKS!

(actually, there are a few other hard-core types that have yet to post a note on this thread....as we all know, it THRILLS us die-hards to get a little bit of a reaction from the regulars...i really do appreciate it and will show my wife the excitement...very fun indeed)

THANKS!

It's thread-bump weekend! Bump your faves! Bump other people's, your own, or whatever from over the years....

(This axe is not mine. It belongs to my wife. Regardless of that closeness, I'd be dishonest if I didn't bump this. IMO this thing is ridiculously amazing looking, deserving a bump for this weekend. One of my faves of all time. Really.)

Well, this one is getting some talk as an inspiration for the new build called "Foxy Brown" by our bro SilkyHotLicks -- his new SH675. So, for the newer in the BBS family that might not have seen it....here we go...a bump.

Outstanding geet. It almost looks like the size of a Les Paul. I know Carvin semi hollows are smaller than your typical 335/Manta Ray/2200/Viking/etc, but this looks QUITE small.

Which is by no means a bad thing. I actually wish they came out with a single F-holed chambered solid body, like a CS3/6-F or something.

Like so:

I would be all over this like a blowfly on poo. (And I think elfdude would too).

Yeah, the 335s are 16" wide, the Les Pauls are about 12" wide, and the SH550 is right in between at about 14" wide. They're really comfortable.

A semi-hollow CS with a single f-hole?
Yeah, that'd be pretty cool. 8)

Btw, I caught your video down below about your daughter (I didn't listen yet since my work PC has awful sound and I'd rather listen @ home or w my good Sennh buds... but congrats on her wedding. Looks like Grampa Elf might be in the future (if not already from other kids, don't know if you have others!)

This was the first of my daughters to marry. So, grandpa is a few years off still I expect. :)
