    I really dig that finish, as well as the overall shape.

    Nice piece.

    That is a sick finish, man.

    *edit* ...and I love everything about that body. Is that recess there for the input jack? That's what I was assuming, but I don't see a jack hole in those pics.

    Haven't drilled the hole yet. I've got a gargantuan 24mm bit that will make easy work if that.

    The great thing about doing what you love is that occasionally you just get the urge to throw all of your spare parts into a pile & say "What can I build with these?" Nope, not for sale, just for the hell of it, to see what happenzzz....

    one piece ash body
    birdseye/walnut/flamed/walnut/birdseye neck with Ebony board 25.5"
    double black binding
    gibson 57' classic modded to 4 wire on a 3 way switch w/ Vol
    2 half sets of 3x3 sperzel tuners/ 3 satin/3 polished
    gibson tailpiece modded to be wraparound

    neck time! check out the awesome piece on the bottom, figured korina with coco bolo stringers and flame maple binding with a kingwood board....and the blue flame board is the flame maple 5 piece with figured korina stringers.

    i know i didnt write between the picswhat everything is, but im sure you guys can figure out most of the woods.....if you cant and are curious, just ask!

    Refinishing the headstock for the white guitar, to match the body of course. Going to pore fill it tonight and start lacquer tomorrow.

    Also sprayed lacquer on the body today and sealed up another neck.
