    Thanks boys :)

    It features our logo and says "for WEGVISOR", which is the company my buddy works in and we built this guitar for.

    Awesome stuff Knarbens!

    I wish I had your only a fraction of your skills!

    Looking forward to the headless design!

    Help me decide. It's not top-notch, but I have to choose one side ... don't want a symetrical alignment. A or B – what's cooler?

    B but flipped around. Put that more splotchy stuff under the bridge, would look great.

    My assistant and I were talking about this topic again and went with A. The small crazy area B-flipped-around would have ended up with disturbed the mockup in our eyes.

    Satisfying result for this day. Body and fretboard cut to final shape.
    Hey Renk! You know what? Wrote down my working times – 5,5 hours for now! ;)

    Some more progress on the body. Drew the line of the main bevel and prepared the neckpocket and neck pickup cavities.

    Some progress on the neck/head of the guitar posted above. First 3d headstock we've done.

    We're slowly getting somewhere ... drilled the control mounting holes and routed for the humbuckers (with separate routed ears for the first time). Also the Schaller Hannes Piezo is fitted. Next step on the neck would be straighten it down to final thickness.

    Just wanted to share these shots. The guitar is a revision of our first finished guitar. We sent the guitar to a professionell to have it painted high gloss. Color coats are on. I love this color and the soft burst transition.

    That would be fantastic just left the way it is, in satin. That looks amazing.
