    On Reverb is a blue flame double cut if anyone is interested.
    Not my sell.
    Forgot how to link from my phone. Age blows.

    Looks vaguely familiar, weren't we discussing this one last week? IMHO, current asking price is a bit unrealistic, even with the SDs. IIRC, I paid around $200 for a lefty old headstock one with an amber flame finish. I'm also not sure about the claims of a long tenon and 3/4" maple cap either. I suppose I could pull the neck pickup in mine but that would have to wait until this weekend...

    i don't know what's wrong with me. i think double cut prs's look great (and obviously stratalikes), but i think double cut lp's just look weird and bulbous. maybe it's the symmetry?

    The price is a tad high IMHO but I'd love to have it.

    I'm just the opposite, it's a rare double cutaway that I don't like. One in particular that I really like is Pat Travers' Gibson Custom Shop double cutaway Les Paul:

    I'm with you on that. Playing-wise the cut makes sense, but just does nothing for me. There are a few that kind of work (Hamers used to make some I could have owned once) but these...

    That's crazy - that's one I could probably own (y)

    Yup that’s the one. The price is insane, never going to get that in a million years.

    I agree that the price is high and if I were interested I'd ask for photo proof of said cap and tenon.
