Looks great, I would like to see a closeup of that binding that gave you so much stick 

Thank you AD... will get some sunlight photos this weekend and will try to capture it better.

finding it difficult to get good pics of this... my wife says I'm not very good at taking pics (sad face).  chin up... here's a shot of the binding up close and some others.

need to get my office in order to work on a video.  this guitar very much turned out 'texas sounding'.

hot dang, I love the rosewood fretboard + headstock look, good job on bending the veneer, the binding too, it all ties in really nicely. Is this one wired in the same way as blue?

thank you ad.  yes, this one is the same wiring as the blue but the pickups are a bit less output - 7k to 5.6k instead of 9k - 5.6k.  has a dif (more subtle) booster too.  Very much has an SRV thing going.  I was talking to some guy who works for moonstone guitars and he said they have an upcharge of $300 for body binding... now I know why!  was quite the learning experience.

It's a thousand times easier to make a great looking guitar than it is to take great looking pictures of it.

And that sir, is a great looking guitar!

thank you sir.  means the world to me.  also, couldn't agree more about the pictures... it seems each guitar finish I encounter has a new list of challenges afa taking pictures.  some look better w flash, some without, some look better washed out, some look better dark... I need a live in pro photographer!
