It plays and sounds great, but if I was going to get another C6, I would get the Hipshot trem instead of the Floyd.

Really nice!!! I think the red inlays & red binding are the masterstroke, and the C Hole is growing on me. Spalted maple is one of my least favorite woods but this build reminds me that a good trans color over it brings out its best. Another winner JCG!!

Spectacular; as has been the norm among your builds of late. I'm really getting on board the Crescent train. So the whole body is spalted maple, eh? I'm gonna have to be that guy and ask for pics of the back, it's a huge oversight you didn't include any the first few times. :wink:
