    I'll be honest - I dislike that "all inlay" fretboard. It makes it look like an Esteban.

    I know it's not even in the same universe, but the first time I saw an all "non-wood" white fretboard was one of those Estebans and I'll never be able to accept that look, $15k price tag or no.

    I might change my mind after playing it, though. :)

    This would be a super nice guitar without the fretboard gaudiness and get rid of that hideous pickguard!! How distracting from what would otherwise be a really beautiful guitar.....

    You guys are a tough crowd lmao . At first I thought the same about the fret board but then I just looked at the block inlays and thought they are pretty at which point I stopped thinking all together . Lol

    If my memory serves me well - Hagström of Sweden used to have a solid body guitar, that was fully celluloid covered - including the fretboard. Saw one of those in sixties in my home town.

    Ahh - found some info - not totally covered, back of neck was painted and fretboard was plex

    First good guitar - GUILD Duane Eddy 400 - I was 3rd owner - still regret letting it go 25 years ago - used to have Artist Award and Starfire - no regrets here.
    Present guitars - all bought new - F50R 1975 - F512 1977 - F212CSB 1979 - OM-240CE 2018 - Schecter Startocaster
    Bought secondhand - B30SB fretless - RED Songbird - White Songbird - S-60D - D-125 - Gibson 3/4-size acoustic 1957 - Carmelo Gonzales nylon string - old Levin Lute

    I'm OK with the pickguard, but I agree about the fretboard, Tom. I'm generally a low bling kind of guy, and that's the way I like my Bourgeois too. Well, a little bearclaw is nice!

    EKO and other Italian accordian makers who got into the 60's electric guitar craze did a lot of those MOTS finishes...Sandy, maybe you don't remember, but one of those high end shops we went into had a whole rack of them
