    Agreed, that top and coloring looks killer! Interesting cavity route with the material removed behind the tabs, I might have to try that for some extra real estate. Curious how the slightly squared off shoulders at the neck heel will feel.

    Personally, I think it's pretty perfect the way it is at the moment.
    It looks very natural, whereas darker edges look forced and artificial extremely quickly in my opinion.

    Looking great, my Waghorn is coming close to being finished too. I hope it looks as kick-ass as yours is shaping up to be!

    Hate to be that guy but i liked it more without the black. Its still a stunning finish but so much more generic. Loved how the large red shapes gave it detail from a distance and how the wood structure was just as much of a focus as the colour gradient. Now its just a colour gradient with some (fancy) noise like almost every burst.

    (just my :2c:, no hard feelings plz:steve:)

    Definitely like it better with the burst. It went from Sauria to Sauron. And you can still see all the detail in the dark areas as well. Honestly probably my favorite guitar build going on right now, including my own lol

    good lord, what a kickass piece of maple! the burst gives it serious mojo, it reminds me of some of the funkier Shermans from way back

    At first glance I liked it without the black burst better but looking at it again I think I like the black burst a lot. The straight up cherry burst is incredible, pops and shows off the figuring. The black burst makes it feel more luxurious and refined, like adding a slight vignette on a photo. That picture of it on the workbench really does it for me, the carve looks incredible.

    Reminds me a bit of Ryan Siew's Mayones regius core.
