Hi guys, I'm Currently building a Skervesen again. I'll try to keep the thread updated until the guitar is done. Specs: Model: Shoggie DC 6 Headstock: (Headpiece) SkerveTEN Neck: 5-piece wenge-maple bolt-on neck Scale: 25.5'' Fretboard: birdseye maple Fretboard Radius: 14-16'' Inlay: treble side offset pattern, Luminlay dots Body: swamp ash Top: walnut Color: natural Finish: satin Pickups: Fishman Fluence Modern, brushed steel cover Knobs: Hipshot Products Inc O-ring Tuner/Bridge: ABM headless with ABM single string locks Hardware Color: black Strap pins: Dunlop locking, flush mount, tip of horn (upper pin) Case: Hiscox Cases Frets: Jescar Enterprises stainless steel Nut: Graph Tech Guitar Labs Strings: GHS Strings Side dots: Luminlay Weight: <2.5kg Regarding the woods, I've selected them based on their appearance and workability, as I always do. This time, I'm aiming for a great contrast: Black neck with bright, white fretboard, brown top with light colored backside, silver matt pickup covers and black hardware. For the top and back we've selected pieces with similar grain that runs to the middle what works great with the body shape I think. I general, this will be my first guitar with a "normal" maple board (not roasted) and I never had such a dark neck on a guitar (natural color). Also, this is the first guitar with "normal" scale since a while (my other guitars have fanned frets). Fishman is also a first for me. I only played them briefly in a Boden Metal that I had for a few days. I've decided against the single ABM headpiece/clamp since I think it is too bulky. I also do not like the look of a headless neck that looks like straight sawn off. Thus I'm going with single ABM string locks for this one. Proposed build time is 8 months but I guess it's more like 10 with the current workload of Skervesen. I've started the build only a few weeks ago but a few days later there were already some progress to marvel at.
