    I don't think I need to say much on this one...

    Though I will say there's still a few things I need to do before I can string it up, like finish the fret job. Nothing really major though.

    Slotted 5 of the 6 fretboards today. I'll have to make a template for the 29.4" scale length.

    [​IMG]

    Glued one of the fretboards on. This stock guitar will be a 6 string with a Graphtech Resomax TOM. The fretboard under all the clamps is roasted birdseye maple.

    Oh, and I'm a Certified SolidWorks Associate as of this morning, took the exam before heading to the shop.

    This is a seriously kick ass headstock.

    So what sort of body styles, neck profiles, and construction types (e.g., neck-through, set, or bolt-on) do you offer?

    I've got my Espada modern superstrat shape, another version that's a little more rounded, my Deep Eddy single cut, the Thresher X shape, another that's a take on the Explorer, a V shape, and two different headless shapes.

    I do bolt on mainly, with inserts and actual bolts, but also will do set neck and neck through.

    I can do most types of neck carves that aren't patented, and also offer two asymmetrical options.

    Do you have pictures of all these body offerings? Or mockups, etc.? I'd be interested to see your take on them.

    roasted maple is such a good looking wood. Got a few tops of it in the storage room.

    You're quick progress is inspiring and makes me want to buy a cnc/put in a few more hours every night :shred:

    Like a Moser Bastard V, but possible to sit down with.
