    I'm waiting for a mythical day to arrive when I see an Oni that I don't think looks absolutely amazing.

    Still waiting. ;)

    A little over a year, so not that long at all. Dan picked up a CNC machine and CNC'ing has a learning curve to it, so since Dan wanted everything to be perfect which takes time, I have no problem with that knowing the fret slots are accurate down to a thousandth of a millimeter and all 100% true. ;) The carves on the body are killer too, all of which takes time and since Dan was constantly in contact it doesn't seem like it has taken too long whatsoever. :)

    Ya, I also haven't been the healthiest camper over the last few months, but that's how things go sometimes. A lot of the shaping on this would have been almost impossible without the CNC and the use of 3d CAD to model the relationship between the pickup cavities and rear contouring, it's pretty crazy stuff.

    And on the bright side, now that it's all in CAD and programmed, it's easily reproducible :D
