    Finally finished my latest project. The idea was to combine my favorite aspects of my previous builds and instruments into one design. More on the thought and spec process can be found in the build thread.

    This one took me about a week this time. I still have to make the cavity cover, it will be made from 2mm ebony.

    Specs:
    Body: Top/Core/Back: Ebony/Maple/Swietenia
    Neck: Swietenia/Maple
    Fretboard: Ebony
    Scale: 25.50"
    Hardware: Strandberg EGS Rev. 4
    Frets: 2.3x1.45 Stainless Steel
    Pickups: Seymour Duncan JB SH4 (Bridge), Jazz SH-2 (Neck)
    Toggle: 3 way
    Pot: 1x volume: CTS 500k audio taper
    Strap pins: Dunlop StrapLok
    Strings: Elixier Optiweb 10-52
    Tuning: D
    Finish: Oil (Auro)
    Weight: 2.35kg

    To the pics, shall we?

    That is a stunning guitar! I love bridge especially because most headless guitars have gone the route of exposed tuning pieces and makes playing it in classical position less comfortable. Also the 3 piece body is gorgeous

    Super cool! Love the huge chunk of mahogany in the neck vs. the standard couple stripes.
