    A bit. I've been working on that Raze for the last couple weeks. I drew her probably a month ago. I've done a lot of drawing and I'm trying to get the more interesting ideas cut into MDF. Here's another that I have kickin' around for a headless.

    I've come up with a single-cut design, but it leaned a lil too close to the Sully '71, so I'm tweaking the design. 3 designs with double horns...I really need a single-cut option. I've got another headstock to reveal as well that will look REALLY good on a V.

    I've been busy...really busy. :)

    This is my first guitar build. Getting close to applying the finish stage. It has been a heck of a journey! Learned a lot about the process. I picked a set neck to start with since I deemed it to be the most difficult and wanted to prove to myself I could do it. Anyway here are a few shots of the progress so far:

    I'm over here like "I BUILT A GUITAR!!!", then I see something like this and I'm immediately humbled. Solid bodies pale in comparison to the amount of work I see there.
