Nice! A knock-out, that's a gem :rockon:
That bevel looks killer on the body, not to mention the insane top. The green is the perfect final touch, really makes it pop.

They've really outdone themselves this time, congrats :applause:
Kiesel basses, lots of pedals, nothing wrong

Very cool in the end.
The burst looks very cool - I always wanted to see an scb in a similar fashion.
This certainly is just as good.

I really dig the inline reversed with the single.cuts too.
Congratulations!

Hey John. Love it.
Any idea what the delays in completing were all about?
You've had other builds start and be completed before this one.

Jeff had to decide exactly how he wanted to do the bevel and get it programmed.
Plus there were other guitars in Jeff's bin ahead of mine.

Thanks everyone.
Also, I really like the Kiesel Holdsworth pickups in this one.

Here are a few more pics:

Green is my favorite color and that's why I opted to get a caliburst moss green scb. This is my idea to the extreme!!! I'm glad to see them doing what people want. This is a prime example. Awesome guitar man. :applause:

That top is crazy! I love it!

The cream pickups were a good choice.

Congratulations!

Man, they nailed it on that top - the burl is exquisite and the bookmatching is spot on. Congrats again on a phenomenal build :D

Hey, also, what do you like about the Holdsworth pickups? how do they compare to, say, lithiums or s22s?

That is one of the first or very few coloured burls I like, and probably the only trans green guitar I like at all. Absolutely killer looking all over, did you come up with the moss + green caliburst yourself or did someone suggest it to you/saw a picture?

They are nothing like the Lithiums, they still have that Holdsworth vibe, just a little more modern sounding.

I would describe as warm and smooth, just what you would expect from a Holdsworth neck pickup.
The bridge pickup is a different story. It has more punch than the older model, and when played clean, has a slight out-of phase sound.

I wanted to do the green. It was Jeff who suggested making it a moss green/green cali.
