    My first ever! Started it a few years ago, then family and kid stuff intervened, then I finished it a few weeks ago. Mahogany and maple. Looks okay, plays really well and sounds great. (After I took these photos I noticed that the neck pickup was slightly crooked and I fixed it but didn't bother taking new photos - I'm too busy playing it!)

    What... no new work since mid-October?

    Here's my latest, just went out the door two weeks ago. It's all Honduras, set neck with an ebony board and Gibby Dirty Fingers pups.

    Hey man, I've been building for nearly 20 years. Ive even taken on a few apprentices over the past few years and I can say that ya I can see a few things on your guitar here and there that are not exactly "Master Luthier" quality. But if this is your first build then you did a great job. I would personal not let my apprentice start with a Gibson style set neck. I dont know how many "custom builds" I've seen with a botched neck angle. I would be ok with letting them build a chambered body but carving the top...no sir. Seen that botched too many times also. I hope this gave you the itch and you build more.
