That is looking really good! Did you build it from scratch?

Cheers Toff! I've been waiting for some decent weather to take some nice pics of the finished article outdoors and do a thread on it, but, well, I'll let you know when the sun comes out!

In the meantime, here's a couple of earlier workbench pics which give a bit of a better idea of the finish. If anything the body looks nicer in the flesh than it does in pics, really responds to changes in light:

Aha! Very nice indeed, I didn't spot that should've thought smaller scale, that looks great though!

Damn that finish is mighty fine! Like the shape of the headstock as well

As it's turned out though, the modifications needed to get there ended up so extensive that it would have been less work overall to cut from blank. Filling the front routed control cavity, bridge pickup aperture and pickguard holes seamlessly turned out really fiddly and time-consuming - a lot moreso than cutting out the whole bodyshape would have been!

The end result is triffic though, makes some fantastic sounds and looks great. Exactly what I wanted to achieve.

I wish I had something new to post



This project was abandoned (for those who didn't catch the scene, it was kinda funny).




That goes off for chroming on Tuesday. Ibanez ZR trem ftw.



Always, always, always fun to play. Ive been waiting a few WEEKS now on a cord for the pad. Trying a new method...




Missing a chrome warpig



There were so many changes made to this order that all of these parts are no longer needed. Anyone interested?



The guitar that feels like it will never be finished. You may be a band touring with Muse and The Killers, but apparently you're always broke.




Thats everything on my plate at the moment. It's like this never ending work load.

well, the endless bad news about my guitar building career never stops...

firstly, i'm still waiting on the body for my first build. i'm going to ring shortly to see wtf is the story.

secondly, the government totally sucks. and payroll too. Basically, i was due to get my tax back friday just gone. DENIED! payroll screwed me over in a big way, and now that i'm finished working there, it's going to be a lot harder to get my monies. fortunately, my manager is a really nice guy, and after i explained how payroll fucked up he said, quote "ok, i'll ring on monday and sort them the fuck out" he doesn't curse a lot, so serious business. the only plus is that im due €900 in tax back now. so fuck yah!!

finally, because i only got paid €150 in the last pay packet, i cant afford power tools or pickups.

would anyone care for some high res renders of my build though?
