These are my last two for the year =]
This one was done some time ago.
the first completed prototype of what I hope to be many Celia Jr's
A very grunty 12.4k P90, CTS 500k pots and .033 paper in oil cap
Just a stripped down, no frills, R&R machine!!

I made this cutting board yesterday and today.
Posted a few photos to facebook, looks like a few people want to buy it.
finished a few recently =] the Curly Redwood one is the 24 hour build =]
Here's my flagship model "The Prelude", a wenge and mahogany semi acoustic electric with humbucker spec P90's and some custom finishing touches.
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!)
Poorboy #57. 1 piece Walnut body/1 piece Black Locust neck/fret board. Black Locust Bridge Ramp, Corian bridge. Direct drive Bill Lawrence L45S Pickup. Inverted nut. Gunstock oil finish.
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.
Nice! The best of both worlds combined.
Here's my newest one done.
Hello Everybody! Im new to the forums but hope to contribute to the conversations. I generaly only build flattop acoustics but it seems as though most folks on here are posting electrics. Ill follw suit and show some of my electric work. Hope you all like!
That's a beautiful guitar man!
Which ended up like......
There's stuff I could point out that I would do differently, but its my first build so maybe next time.
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.
this one is a bit of a departure for you, Jon.
