^Probably referring to the photo restriction. Interested to see these pictures now though.

Something's wrong with your link. It still points to Facebook if you just click it.

But anyways, I do like the swirly grain of the body wood a lot. Also the laminated neck and metal pickup rings. So far it looks way cooler than most standard LPs.

The link works if you go to his UG thread through one of the first links and then from there go to Photobucket.

Looking very nice man! I really like that top, interested to see the fretboard and the finished product.
