    I built this one for myself, currently #8. Finally got around to taking some proper pictures and doing my best to make it look as flattering as possible. I finished it about a week ago and am quite happy with how it plays, action is set very low with no buzzing, and the pickups sound awesome. Also very ergonomic. A few cosmetic issues, and I'm debating re-doing the finish all over again, I buffed through the clear in a few spots and the dye job could be a lot better. For now just going to play it.

    Comments/critique welcome. Here's the build thread starting on post #12:
