I ordered a guitar from Cathy and I have to say the communication was great. I asked for pictures of the final product before she shipped it. Here they are.
Here is the guitar I ordered and the first picture below is what I sent her as a guide. I am not happy with the front color...its yellow and I asked for root beer brown. The back looks nice I think, the headstock diamond looks like a small one and I requested and paid for a larger one so not sure about whats going non with that. Not sure if its shipped yet though, she gave a tracking number but hasn't responded to the question on whether it was shipped and what can be done about the front color.
Here is my request...
-Flame Maple top
-root beer brown like color on top to match exactly like color of guitar in the picture of first picture I attached.
-Clear color on back and sides and neck
-gold hardware like in picture
-binding as shown in picture of guitar
-one piece mahogany back
-ebony fret board
-larger diamond and g logo on headstock (attached photo of headstock diamond inlay was sent.)
-1 piece mahogany neck
here are the pictures, again the first one was the guide picture I sent her so she could match the picture. I guess all in all for the price it looks like a nice guitar. The problem is as you can see from my avatar...this is almost the exact same color of a guitar I bought off DH Gate last year.
Anyway its a roll of the dice I know and the guitar you get depends on how the stars align for you.
