My in-progress Jerrycaster by Phil Jacoby of Philtone Guitar Company. http://www.philtone.com No, this is not a "clone," yes, I know the body shape is not exact-to-Tiger (it's closer to a WGD), no, I'm not intending an exact copy of anything, yes, I'm enjoying the ride. :)

Thanks. :)

Were the cocobolo not so beautiful-looking natural I'd be tempted to tye-die it. :oops: :D

It will darken some upon finishing, I actually chose the particular plank with that in mind.
