Could someone please specify the finish name on the left CT? I`m ordering one soon, and like that very much. Thanks.

Well, there were no CTs in this thread, so I'll assume you meant the CS:

It looks like transparent black on a plain maple-topped CS4...possibly satin finish.

Discovering this thread a bit late; I just sold this beauty a few weeks ago. Almost an exact replica of a guitar I saw T-Mac play in a concert in Queens in 2000-ish.

Yep, gorgeous antique brown over quilt. Phenomenal guitar that I practically never played. It sat in its case for years, with no affection.

WHAT?! Jealous! When I did mine there was no such thing as reverse Seven headstocks! That's awesome dude! (...unless it was option 50?) But hey, at least I have a tone knob.

Seems like an easy enough option 50... just enter the neck in as a lefty... unless theres more to it. :ninja:

Having never operated a CNC machine myself, I can't say for sure, but that sounds about right to me...

Yeah, but...then it has to face the other way. :roll: I bought a box of nails, but I had to return it. I needed nails for *this* wall, but they were all facing *that* wall. They were all pointing the wrong way! :stir:

2 years ago I asked them for a reverse headstock and the simplified electronics and they wouldn't do it....I am not sure what has changed. I agree, shouldn't have been a huge problem.

Depends on when you ordered. They're much less likely to accommodate "special requests" if they're busier than usual (like right after everybody gets their tax refunds, etc.).
