    The headstock looks so sharp I bet it'll cut you if you press on the tip!

    Also the color combination of the neck woods with the fret board, aside from blending nicely and looking great, it's giving me an appetite for chocolate!

    God dammit. It's these kind of threads that make me want to carry my ass down to Woodcraft and start taking woodworking classes. :metal:

    Dang I forgot about this thread too!

    So wait, do I need to build another V? I think I have some leftover ferrets...



    And an old coffee table!

    ...and simultaneously weep with the knowledge that I couldn't produce anything that looks nearly this good.

    You've got to have some progress that you're hiding from us, Pondman!

    I finished mine!

    Only progress pics, no finished shots yet. I'll be getting shots of her within the next couple days.

    Just finished a fret job today and making the nut tomorrow. My band had a show on Saturday and it's been 2 years since our last show, so I wasn't about to miss the opportunity to have it onstage. I threw a test nut on there and strung her up without a fret level and crown. She played perfectly, so we got her up there. She roars!

    That's my other guitarist, he was pretty fkn happy with the build.

    Shaped the back and decided I want it thinner so I'll start it all over again.

    Been crazy busy at work so not much workshop time.
    The neck is nearly done after re-shaping the back so here are the first few coats of snake oil after dying.
