They're a happ'nin - BMF Vintage Plus - Joe Stump inspired

Postby guitarsatbmusic » Wed Oct 21, 2009 10:19 pm

Yep, not too much to decide here. Looks like the pearl white/gold will be the winner out of the two below it's inspired by. I may get mine scalloped, others won't be, not most people's cup of tea.
Questionable DiMarzio Malmsteen strap will NOT be included. :shock:
Waiting on price and availability and how big the run needs to be from our friends in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Edit:
They're to be a reality. Here's the skinny on them from the Land of the Rising Sun:

Vintage Plus Joe Stump in Pearl White or Cream.
Price includes GST. Those overseas in markets we can ship to, ex-GST price is in brackets:

-Chrome hardware.........AUD$3,249.00 (AUD$2,953.63)
-Gold Hardware.............AUD$3,295.00 (AUD$2,995.45)
And, for Scallop option, add AUD$210.00 (AUD$190.91)

There will be a run of 6 mixed across colours and hardware preferences depending on what people want. Me, I'm going pearl white with gold hardware and scallopini 8-)

My vote, as stated before goes with option 1 (Pearl White/Gold).

Here are some low light close-ups of the color.

We did an M-II in Pearl White in a Michael Romeo fashion once, can't for the life of me find the pics :evil: Super hard to capture outdoors where I generally do them, and my indoor photography skills suck. Much like the Horizon-III Pearl White/Gold we had, pics don't show any of the pearl really, can't be described without seeing it

Can't it be a more traditional coloring?

White not traditional? It's pretty subtle the pearl, impossible to describe

Reverse, has to be. I'm only doing a very small run, this is one I've wanted for a while, so good time to do it. Then I have to get ot that bloody M-II I've been "gonna" do for years :oops:

If these things come scalloped and with 22 frets i'd pay you the deposit right now! :lol:

I'm not usually a fan of gold hardware... but silver will look weird with the gold/pearl paint now that i think of it

22 frets they'll have, the scalloping is the curly one at the moment, we're working on that
