    Quoted 6 months build time, but Ive only added the inlay to the standard build, no other extras.

    Oh yes I can't wait.

    Thinking about going from the EMGs to BKP Black hawks with the ceramic, the sound samples sound fantastic.

    Ill throw up the mock up when I get it through.

    Love the 40K inlay! Though, I'm getting a little sick of looking for regular thunder hammers and only finding a thousand listing for space wolves ones.

    Well latest update, the vol is going to be a push pull pick up selector. Keeping it nice and simple.

    Only progress so far is that the next set of body blanks are being glued and hopefully early/Mid March work can begin.

    Not sure on seeing if I can get a darker finish on it or not.

    I've thought it would be fun to make a series of 40K-inspired guitars. The Necron one would be very futuristic and Giger-esque, with pulsating green LEDs, the ork one would be haphazardly cobbled together from multiple different guitar styles and woods, painted red so it goes fasta, etc.

    To be honest I'm not sure just decided to go for a tried and tested combo. If my long term work situation gets sorted out then I will order a flat top crusher and may put Blackhawks in.

    I'm not good at decisions.

    I think this is the second 40K inspired Crusher around these parts.

    This one I'm keeping to give to my son when he is 18 as he was born the day before this was ordered and not to mention that by Pure coincedence the inlay is taken form Logan Grimnars sigil, and my son is named Logan. Pure chance but kinda cool.
