    Just posted this on jemsite, but thought you guys would like it too!!
    Mahogany back with thick quilt maple front lacquered in nitro-cellulose, Unfinished maple vine fingerboard on maple neck, Flame maple lacquered veneer on headstock, Blaze custom bridge pickup with Blaze neck, Volume control and 5-way rotary switch (like a PRS), LoPro7 trem.
    The rotary 5-way is awesome, it goes:
    1. Bridge humbucker
    2. Inner coils of each pickup in parallel
    3. Outer coils in parallel
    4. Outer coils in series
    5. Neck humbucker
    All positions are hum-cancelling and the 3 middle positions are really cool - I'm gonna have to change some of my other guitars to this switching for sure.

    To clear this up, I built it myself from the following:
    Body bought straight off the CNC machine from Monster guitars, so it needed alot of sanding, grainfilling, etc. Then I lacquered it and polished it, etc.
    RG7620 neck which I removed the fingerboard from and replaced with this maple board. The board was six string width so I bound it with more maple and then inlaid the green vine and fretted it. Then I veneered and lacquered the headstock front, new logo, etc. Then I put it together and wired it up, etc.
    Nearly all my own work apart from buying the unfinished body.
    Cheers,
    Rich
