  • looks good. Shame someone embezzled about 100k from me this year or I'd buy. Can't even afford the wife a Christmas present after that, sigh.

    • I'm on an iPhone at the moment. Am I seeing flakes in that green? I had reservations, but that seems to work with that shade... even if I pick something different.



      *edit* Okay looking at it at home now... I don't think it's for me. Since opinions were requested...

      To me surf green is a lighter shade.







      The above prototype looks more like this fella:

          yes, that is our version of a "Metallic" finish. in person, this finish really POPS! I can't reveal exactly how we achieve this look.. but its not just a metallic flake in the paint.

          I've said all along that we have never been able to properly photograph our guitars. and my cell phone camera is making it darker

          • I dig it, but it's more of a toothpaste green. It'd look great with a tortoiseshell pickguard, IMO.



            (incidentally, and I do like it, but I kinda think you should call it "booger green", just to be different )

            • I think the green looks nice, although it doesn't really look like surf green from the pics (unfortunately). Probably a good choice with tortoise though. I likely would have gone with surf green if it had been pastel, but if they all have this type of metal flake I'll probably go with hot rod red. Have you decided on pickups and hardware yet (especially for the hardtail version)?

                • Wow. That green looks a lot better than I thought a "metal flake surf green" type thingie might look. It's gonna be tough to choose!

                      Wow, the guitars really look great! My only minor disappointment is that I sorta miss those three little "slots" in the pickguard - I thought that was a neat little detail.

                      Also, will we get a picture of a black guitar before we have to select? I assume the black would have a white p/g? It'd be great to see one if possible!

                  • Bad timing for me.
                    Oh well. Just have to wait and get a USA model next year on my 40th.

                    • HOORAY!

                       The new Retronix guitars are NOW IN THE SHOP! and they look PHENOMINAL!

                       Our QC procedures have been outlined, and they are based on the same 55 point inspection that Sweetwater Music uses. Plus a couple more of my own personal points as well.

                       Each guitar will be gone over personally by me and will come with a clearly detailed checklist of what was Checked, Adjusted and Cleared for each guitar.

                       I've started QC-ing the first 10 units today and we WILL be shipping guitars THIS COMING WEEK!


                      Get ready for some Retro-Futuristic Fun!

                      • Awesome to hear Bruce. I plan to make a request when Kevin emails me, but if you aren't doing it anyway, I was hoping you'd sign the back of the headstock on mine. It'd be cool if this run had numbers too, just sayin'. Mine is likely the only tremolo bridged instrument in pink (yeah I felt like being different).
