    I got this update and had a choice of 3 different pickguards (they are included with the guitar) and chose this anodized Gold (looks whitish) one :

    Knobs will be the same colour as the pick guard, tuners will be gold.

    more updates to come, hopefully.:D

    Nice, did you get it through a local guy, or import it? I'm on the lookout on Jauce for a Navigator Les Paul, either a black or white custom style, or a cherry burst standard. I have a mate that imports CIJ Ibanez and Fender, and he swears by Jauce for value and reliability, but even a second hand Navigator is a pretty significant jump in outlay - so I'm still a bit unsure.

    Imported it from Japan. Wasn't that hard to fill out the form, just did it through .pdf and email. All up with customs and GST was around $2,000.

    A lot of the big stores will deal with OS customers, better than going through a middle-man. Exchange rate is gonna hurt more than anything.

    Hi Guys,

    As promised here is a piccie of my new guitar.

    Made in Melbourne beauty, Cole Clark FL 2 in full mahogany.


    [​IMG]

    i'm very very happy, and Cole Clark after sales service is Awesome.


    The story is that I picked up the last CC Mog from a local guitar shop

    [​IMG]

    When I got home I noticed that there were a couple of "gaps" in one of the joins.

    unsure if this was a cosmetic thing or not I emailed the guys at CC with pics.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They immediately responded assuring me it was a cosmetic issue but invited me to bring it into their factory for a check.

    When I popped into their factory they gave me a little factory tour and showed the build process and explained on a partially assembled guitar why those gaps were only cosmetic.

    [​IMG]

    After which they grabbed a couple of fresh ones off the prod line and let me choose if I wanted to swap mine anyway (which I did to the current one you see on the red couch)

    now that's service!

    :thumbup:

    Nice. How does it sound? Mahogany acoustics are quite unique in terms of tone.

    I think the one you ended up with looks best too, the scratch plate just kinda completes it.

    Congrats - they're some nice looking beasties.

    Your post just reminded me (multi-scale guitars, by Perry Ormsby who runs the guitar making course...)

    Firstly, there is a user SneakyJak from the ozbass forums who's been doing some really interesting luthierie the last couple of years - he's 3 instruments in and for this thread I though you guys might like to check out his first build: the tiny headless 7 string multiscale electric

    [​IMG]

    Build Log here: http://ozbassforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=17441

    Secondly, for us East Coast folk who have a hard time getting over to WA for Perry's guitar making courses, Melbourne Polytechnik (David Searle) have been running guitar/bass making course for the last few years, and it's popularity has resulted in David Searle and Robert Pryke starting the dedicated "Melbourne School of Guitar Making".
    http://ozbassforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=19701

    The guitar above was born from the polytechnik course, but there is a bunch of guys on the ozbass forums who are churning out some really interesting and diverse instruments from this school:
    Kermit - 6 String multi-scale bass
    Single-cut 5 string fretless
    12 String Acoustic
    Bass build with custom Cave Passive fx unit onboard
    Random works highlighted

    I thought if anyone is interested in cutting their luthierie teeth a little closer to home, this is a great opportunity :)
