Thanks for the compliment KGM. I know what ya mean about the $$, I traded two good guitars and a fist full of cash for her. Should be all I ever need though, I'm done with GAS. On the other hand, are you talking about the Bourgeois Vintage D? Always wanted to try a Bourgeois.
The pickgaurd on the Marquis aways stuck out to me. Against the dark sunburst the pickgaurd looks too red and just looks out of place. I was thinking of a Greven or maybe a fire/tiger stripe. Something that almost blends in with the top. Definately something darker.
I suck at taking pics, here's a good one I found on the web that really shows how much it clashes. Mine's identical.
EDIT: Thanks Mike! That's a mighty fine D18GE you got there.
Maybe something like one of these.
