    Dude that is so ....ing classy I can't even stand it.

    Seriously nice work. I can't believe the ideas you come up with and the quality of your builds. This is the perfect 8.

    Good gods, man. I expected greatness, but I didn't expect to have to pick my brains up off the floor. Mind...Blown.

    I don't know if these qualify as 'builds' since I have no luthiery tools, so I must purchase semi-raw pieces, then finish and assemble.
    But here are the Strat and Tele builds I've done.
    Strat - black walnut/mahogany back, CR 9-12 neck, blade hums, all black hrdwr, lckng tuners. Tung oiled

    [​IMG]

    Tele - ash body, arm and belly relief done, 3hb's (hot) with SD triple shot rings, 14 radius neck. this one was a beast to sand, stained and oiled

    Currently working on a 7 string and a soloist style guitar.

    Also, here's another picture I took. This one has the two guitars I've built together laying against an old chevy caprice. The other two instruments I've built are basses, the first one I've taken apart because the neck has some issues, the other was built for someone else so these are my only two builds that are still playable and picture worthy haha.

    Finally, after one year in the making ... it's done. Not a seven though.

    Thank you! The neck bolts are simply stainless allen key M5 bolts and 15 mm neck mounting ferrules (might be the ones stewmac is selling). The guitars hardware (bridge, tuner, knobs, strapbuttons) are Schaller. It's their "Satin Pearl" finish.

    Hi there.

    Here's my .strandberg* EGS project. I used the body shape of Ola's great Bodens and his EGS hardware. A real beast!

    @Knarbens: May I ask, where to get these nice thick metal switches?

    x2 on the "amazing" builds here.

    This is where I come when I feel the need to hate on mass-produced instruments.
