    This is looking downright beautiful so far. Which wood do you intend to use for the fretboard, and what do you intend to do with the overall color of the instrument? With wood looking this nice, I really don't advise a flat black ;)

    I love it when guys on here pride themselves on super clean work. The end product is just so much more impressive.

    Can't wait to see that neck go on the body. Definitely think that headstock matches the Iceman shape a lot better.

    Dang, I think it would be so cool to just build what I GAS for. Instead of order it and wait eons for it to show up. I really gotta take a luthierie course!

    Why? I never had one.

    Read a book about woodwork, view build blogs from established luthiers, buy some tools, take the time to make plans, build jigs and give it a try... thats the way I started.
