    Nice woods, but why is there mostly black hardware on the guitars combined with chrome toggle switches? Get black ones...

    Thanks.

    Re: silver mini switches.

    I have no local supplier for black toggles, I have to import them. If a customer specifically wants black mini toggles they cost me $10ea (so $30 a guitar) plus a rediculous $50.00 international freight. Or, I can use the silver ones I can buy locally for a couple of bucks each which are the same quality. At the end of the day it's the customers choice if they want to spend extra.

    that birdseye blackwood @ the 14:15 mark looks amazing...

    can you do the finish, but not fill the holes and just spray the clear matte on thick so you wont feel the sharp edges?

    i think it would give it a raw, natural look

    Yes, the birdseye set it crazy nice. If you want to talk about your non fill request in more detail, shoot me a PM on my guitar page (www.facebook.com/searlsguitars), or if you're not on Facebook my email is on my .com. Cheers.
