    I treat my phone like ass since I actually got paid by the provider to take it, and my gf cracked it in the first month :nuts:
    Amazing that both of those photo's were taken with the same phone, 24 hours apart in the same conditions. I got some HD teaser pics today, tomorrow I'll be wiring it up once I get back from some 6am fishin'!

    The fretwork on it was SO painless. I only touched the tops with 1000 grit, and it was ready to polish.

    EDIT: Eh, lets skip the wait.

    Holloway got the left boob fretboard. Left boob is always the best boob.

    weighed in at like....7-8 pounds or so? Not bad considering it has a 22mm solid wenge top, and 22mm solid walnut core.

    CNC'd templates came in yesterday as well, so I'll have some neck thru and headless work done for you guys.

    My extensive scientific research has brought me to the conclusion that the left boob is often the bigger of the two. :yesway:

    #10 got a new owner. Old one sold it to start saving up for a custom from me as well.
    Vid: https://www.facebook.com/juliusjahnluthier/posts/846990468730444

    #14 is ready for oil after some finish sanding this weekend (and the logo in and 5 way slot cut). I've stopped numbering them by when I start but rather when I finish them; it's just too unpredictable between customers schedules, pickup winders, lost packages, and any other delays that may surface. Don't want #19 shipping out before #14!


    Wenge/flamed maple neck thru
    ash wings
    buckeye burl top
    flamed maple fretboard
    black binding
    arm, belly, and tummy carve
    wenge control cover (magnetic)
    PRS wide thin carve
    bone nut
    25.00" scale
    buckeye headstock cover
    Guitarmory pickups, black covers w/ 12 gold pole pieces (screw heads)
    2 vol (recessed), 5 way
    medium frets

    Admins, Can you PM me about commenting/posting updates until I renew my vendors account? Definitely don't want to be banned for posting the NGD album.

    Just so everyone knows, I'm very well and active with the builds; I just put my attention into instagram/facebook for the last few months and have yet to renew my dealer prescription here so didn't want to post too much!

    As always, PM me through any of the methods if you have questions. I'm planning to increase production by 50% this year! (8 builds to 12, and cut my other job from 5 days to 2 days a week in the summer season)

    Long day with CAD, got some stuff made in reality. Pickups bobbins for a local dude. Yes, I have more and can make a wack load for anyone who winds their own. I will also be making the maple cores in a few weeks when i get the proper router bit in the mail. Black white plastic and African ebony + Canadian maple.
