I like it! There's no other guitar on earth that looks the same.

I'm surprised you didn't go with a tummy cut. I put one on my build and I like it.

I like it also. Especially the back of the guitar. It has a washed out denim look. That neck is super sweet. Killer looking guitar!
Now that's a conversation piece.
Nice!!!

Thanks!

I wimped out and didn’t do the tummy cut. It’s a heavy body, too. Something like 5 lbs. The neck (roasted maple) must be light because the guitar is only 7.5 lbs.

There are “textures” in the spault top from the stain. I just rubbed the body out with tung oil to seal/finish.

I was going with black hardware, but the golds and ambers in the top had me digging through my parts drawer for gold screws, nuts etc. if it’s going to be a mutant, it shouldn’t go half way.

Cal, was it you (in that other thread) that suggested a washed out look on the front?

Well, I went with that idea on the back. 😎



Edited: No... it was 1600 who suggested that.

And with this one I’m done building for a while.

I’ve got two set neck kits waiting. But I don’t think I’ll start those for a while.

Sorry, I missed your post. Yes, I got it. (-:

I’ve got another spaulted Tele body inbound. Going to do this again.

Don't be afraid of those set neck kits, Eric! A high school kid here built one last year for his first build of anything guitar related, and it came out fine (I helped him finish setting it up - nut, relief, etc. - and helped him wire it up).

I felt like a proud papa when he played it for one of their school "rock/jazz band" concerts.

I’ll get to them. Probably the Explorer first. (-:

I snagged this body because it was the last and only one he had listed.
