Somehow Jimmy Page had his “Black Beauty” returned to him in 2015, 45 years after it was stolen in 1970 after landing in the US.

No pic to share at the moment, I just want to say that I think Allan Holdsworth is the greatest guitarist that ever lived.

While any "greatest guitarist ever" statement is a hotly debatable subject, I'd have a hard time coming up with anything to argue with here.

I couldn't say any ONE person is the "best in the world". It's not just about personal/subjective opinion, but it's about how a guitarist can be the best at a specific ASPECT of guitar playing, yet someone else has honed in on another technique/ability.
Tommy Emmanuel, for example: Holy moly that guy's good. But he can't do Buckethead. Steve Vai is technically astounding, but he can't play what Tommy does. Neither one is a "bad player", but they also haven't perfected every nuance and aspect of guitar playing.

With that said, I assembled two Warmoth guitar builds:

A sonic blue Telecaster (Sonica):

Alder body, Fender Custom Shop '51 Nocaster pickups



Birdseye maple neck, vintage tint gloss, 6105 stainless steel frets







A redwood Telecaster (Redrina):

Redwood body, black binding, red burl maple top



High grade flame koa neck



Pau ferro fretboard, 6150SS frets



Schaller locking tuners





TV Jones Starwood Tele pickups





Here are both of them together (before the headstock decals were applied):

I got me a replacement to the 2001 JS1000, 2004 JS1200, and 2005 JS100 that I had to sell off after I lost my job (that JS1000 was my most favoritest guitar I ever had).

The action is nice and springy, and the neck profile is - dare I say it - even MORE smooth and inviting than the 2001 JS1000 black pearl. I had that guitar for 10 years, and parting with it also removed a small piece of my heart. And my soul.

So, happy to say that this guitar feels even better than the previous models I owned. The pickups are creamy and milky, and a little different from previous models. However, I would wager most people wouldn't notice any difference. You can always tweak EQ somewhere in your audio chain to boost the treble/tone a bit (which is what I do), but the crunch is for realz, as well as note clarity and precision.
I don't usually go for rounder radius fretboards (this one is 9.8"). I prefer 10.5"-12.5". I love the Wampler compound 10.5"-16" radius fretboards with a passion. However, this is the ONLY model guitar I've played with such a round radius that makes me so happy.

This is my "small room" practice setup in its current state: Blackstar HT1R 1-watt tube amp; Boss DD3 delay; MXR Black Label Chorus; Wampler Leviathan fuzz; Wampler Sovereign distortion; 535Q wah; Digitech Whammy. Also, a guitar strap designed by Satch (and signed).

Man I have not stopped in here in a while and looking at some of these post I need to return more often, don't really have any new toys on this front and these sweet shots are not helping me but these days mine gather more dust than skin! Since I can't post any new Gee-Tars let me post a clip that always makes me break out one of the Fretters when I get home just to hear one chord (OK, maybe a wee bit of feedback too) :rolling_eyes: LOL If this don't make you want to at least look at yours or rub Ernie's Ball's something is just wrong:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
