Here's a few crappy iPhone photos of the Tiger in its new home. Right now it's on the floor hanging out with some decent company. Soon it'll take its appropriate place on the wall with the other customs. I'll post better photos (though Leo's are pretty awesome) and tone report over the next few days.

I wish that was a real Zemaitis. It's one of the first made after Tony's son revived the company.

Wow! What an incredible amount of work goes into that. It looks like dozens of hours are spent on the inlays alone. Whatever you paid, you are getting your money's worth! :cool:
