OG in da house. For the benefit of those who didn't already know about this one.

A 1990 KB60. Koa body and hardrock maple neck. Individual parts acquired over a span of five years. Originally finished in 2005 with a late-80's M22T but now sporting a C22B and two AP11s. Of course, tung oil on the body and neck.

If I could have a title here on the BBS, it would have to be "luckiest sob on the bbs".

I just finished the one on the left last week. I Bought it used (and still with the wood unfinished) from someone who built as a project and never played it for.....wait for it... 95 Bucks!!! After disassembly. four coats of Tung Oil, some elbow grease, and a little re-soldering, I have a "basically" new Carvin Bolt with a Wilkinson Trem, a M22SD and 2 AP11s. I am loving the tonal variety. It rivals my 1998 Dc400TA on the right in versatility. :lol:

Soooo jealous of you there! A new instrument after everything for less than the cost of a loaded pickguard!

You have indeed won...
