    Love those aluminium/ebony dots. They look even better in person

    Wow - the updates come thick and fast when Perry gets a clear run at your build :) Update from today - neck joint routed - control positions drilled.

    Get this for making sure nothing is left to chance: my body (and the other guitar still remaining in the run) already had the binding applied - but Perry noticed today that the glue he used was close to it's use by date...so: he routed off the binding and redid it with fresh glue! It speaks of the amazing attention to detail that Perry puts into his work :) You might not like the design of the headstock or whatever - but i doubt you could get a much better quality guitar made. Period.

    Perry must have got a bit confused today - wrong neck on my body!!! :lol:

    Nah - he was seeing what a non-reverse hype headstock would look like.

    Looks good!

    Kinda sad that this is drawing to an end - has been a blast being involved with this run. Can't wait to be holding this guitar though!

    Maybe this is the start of a very expensive Ormsby addiction - like capoeiraesp has :)

    I wish, that'd mean I'd have two badass guitars! The ebony one is for another member in the run. Although mine is a lefty, the strings are reversed for a righty haha.
