    I started a couple of SG's. One will be an early sixties styled Special, and the other an early sixties styled Junior. Both will be Spaele bodies with Khaya necks, and P-90's. Once I have a fair amount of work done, I'll start a thread.

    Went over to my dads to mill down some rough sawn mahogany into neck blanks. He bought a few more toys since last time I saw him...

    Barnaby, you'll be sad to hear that I only used the bandsaw, the #7, and the infill smoother on the lower shelf. No resawing by hand for me.

    Should be starting a build thread soon. Need to order fret wire, magnets, and tuners first.

    Yeah I was wondering when this thread would pop up here.

    I always hated the one at MLP becasue I had more than 1 bench ( 12 in fact) and they were always covered in multiple projects. So just taking the photos alone would have taken half the day posting them..

    BUT NOW! Since the move. I have only 3 benches and I can mange that, So here it comes.

    here are 3 of the 4 bodies I just sanded up for Sims Custom Shop guitars.

    and a Fender Vibrolux Reverb that need some serious work..

    [​IMG]

    and a Warmouth Mustang project that a local customer brought in for a set up.
