    Be careful playing that live.

    And if your vocalist acts like a dick, you know what to do!

    Fixed.

    I've never really liked any other shape than super strat but that looks like metal. Wouldn't go with that long of a lower horn but opinions opinions...

    Good luck for the first build!

    I imagine that if he'd actually thrown that body at you, you wouldn't be around to tell us :p

    But good luck with it its one wild shape.

    hmmm... this looks considerably different than the mock-up.. much more narrow, much longer horn, 'shorter' body.. Are the differences intentional, or did angle of the mock up mislead my eyes regarding the dimensions of the shape?

    Not to mention that the mock-up was for an 8-string split headstock, and had an unnecessarily extended fretboard.

    That's really cool looking. Kind of like a mocking bird and a kelly had a baby.

    I knew this was Metal Matt from over at Project Guitar from the first picture. I recognize your touch, I have to say I really dig the shape. Your work has always impressed me quite a bit.
