New Bowes 7 build

Hi guys,

this is the other build i'm working on for myself.

26 inch scale, 25 fret, scalloped 12 - 25 treble side, 2 nordstrands, hipshot bridge/tuners, graphite nut. 1 piece figured walnut body, RGA carving, mahogany/maple/walnut neck. I'm really looking forward to the body contours - this wood looks like an ocean with finish on it.





edit - ninja'd the wood type from maple to walnut. whoops!

Will this one have the same headstock as the one that won GOTM? Cos i'll be honest, it's quite possibly my favorite headstock i've seen on, well, anything

.... yes I noticed the rough outline of the same head on the 8 string build, so in hindsight that question was possibly a touch redundant

Can't wait though man, beautiful stuff

PS..As I told you before I am still interested in ironing out some specs with you and seeing what we could work out. I would love to have a fellow Canuck build me something.

Hit me up on FB or something when you get a chance.

Look at those woods! Wow man, can't wait to see how this turns out

While raping a bear in Yellowstone and snorting coke out of a freshly-dead baby's skull, I finally felt that I had found my calling and built a time machine out of Iraqi WMDs and LOTS OF HEMP WHOA. Using this time machine I went back in time and shot JFK from outer ....ing space. I am now your god - Jeff
.....and then all of a sudden he drops the musical equivilant of a steaming turd right in our laps - ESP Griffyn
