I think there is a forum rule against being in too many clubs but eff it! :wink: Here is my baby which I still haven't given a proper name for the opt 50 paint job. Truss rod cover says "Green Machine" but Kermit In A Cloud Burst might work?

Never thought to post this one here. Technically it's an opt50, but it kinda looks like sunset burst. What do you all think?

Antique brown: one of Carvin's most under-rated finished.

Completely unique burst there, vlnbow - nice thinking outside the box. Looks right at home on that....hey....wait a minute! A center single pup?! What's going on there? I would have gotten that on my HH2 if I could have! :wall:
