    Cool Albert Lee HH BFR

    My AL SSS BFR is a fabulous guitar, the very best I've ever had, and I regret that it's no longer available.

    I do perfectly understands why it was retired and I'm not here to start another rant over this decision.
    (It must get really old for BP to explain that over and over again.)

    But I was thinking it would be really cool to offer a AL HH BFR as it truly is a fantastic machine. Maybe it would sell...

    Why did I color the AL HH BFR in yellow? Because I can't stop watching Blues Saraceno's prototypes and they RULE in gold sparkle.

    Well there are dealers out there that still have the Silver Sparkle AL HH in stock and Silver Sparkle is just awesome in person. It's an option. I have a gold Sparkle Silo Special and absolutely love it. The other option is to find a Black Sugar AL HH (I've got one), the fleck in it is just great. This isn't the best picture, but it will give you an idea.

    See I think that would be/look really cool as well. For me I prefer the roasted neck with ebony, but a rosewood fret board might be very interesting.

    Steevo, probably not much different than the Black Sugar, Roasted with Ebony run.

    I think the no pickguard ones look really cool personally.









    You know at first I didn't like the BFR logo, but it's grown on me and after having an instrument with it, I miss it.

    I think they'd look as good painted.

    Oh hell yes.... I would honestly sell off a bunch of guitars that I love to buy something like this and/or a new AL model with the St. Vincent pups + electronics.

    I love my AL HH but I really believe one with a maple neck would just be even better....
