    Well it appears ive made some waves on here :). Thanks for all of the compliments :). As a quick background, I've been building for about 4 years now and have a 17 year tenure in metalworking and manufacturing. I got into building out of my desire for a product that out shined what I would find in the stores and gave me the flexibility to choose exactly what I wanted utilizing the shapes, wood, neck profiles etc that I wanted and because of my inability to choose with so many available, I got into making pickups because I figured if they sounded bad, it was my own damn fault ;). Feel free to hit me up at timpsonmusic@gmail.com if you'd like to discuss your own guitar :)

    Btw if you are on ug, you may know me as nuthinbuttrubl8 ;)

    There's nothing I don't dig about it, but the headstock I love the most. Really nice design there; it's like a perfected version of ET's Katana.

    thanks guys for all the compliments....i will post a vid when i actually learn something worthwhile.. im still getting used to 8 strings and the longer scale.......and the paint isnt actually opaque, its pure white, me and phil timpson brainstormed on how to fill the grain with black.... he can explain the process better than i can......

    Trust me that wasn't easy... I had to strip it 3 times before I got it right... I dyed the entire bare body in black, sanded the surface back so the black stayed primarily in the grain, shot 3 coats of white over the dye to cover the surface but leave the grain slightly "airy" and open but then the last attempt I put 3 coats of sealer on the white, color filled the grain with a special inlay filler wax i had, scuffed the to surface clean with wire wool and then covered it with 6 seal coats and 5 nitro coats. It still needs a good buffing... That finish is as-sprayed due to deadlines caused by business travel in tandem with the release of the new meshuggah album :)... Lacquer needs months to cure... May as well be able to enjoy it until the paint is good and ready for buffing :)

    That's one of the cooler finish ideas I've seen in a while. Very hot.
