    Seeing how your last project came out, i'd gladly buy your guitars.
    Seriously - you've got the magic touch, turning cheapo lumber into terrific looking axes.
    (that neck joint is gorgeous)

    All is fine, but :scream::scream: small errors in the cut holes for the frets. Which proved to be quite profound.

    Looks pretty fantastic man! I am going to be starting my first build soon and it will be a 7. Anyways, that sucks about the fingerboard man. Everything will turn out for the best though, your build is awesome to watch! Wewt!

    You build looks great. I love wenge as a fretboard wood on guitars. It's overlooked for some reason. Keep up the great work!

    And probably the most unpleasant thing happened.
    I fucked with the milling the holes for the pickups. And it turned out not very smooth opening
    On the bass on the side of the neck pickup:scream:
    [​IMG]

    It was decided to make a new form for pick-ups and close it all the plastic panel.

    A few preview photos of the final result.
    It remains to apply several coats of tung oil. And solder all the gizmos.
    Texture of the wood looks simply awesome live.
    Did not expect such a result :agreed:
