now i don't want to whore it up over here, people on ss.org have let me know that i'm obviously too enthusiastic, but i think this is a build that most here would take great interest in, building another version of the guitar in my avatar
this one is African Mahogany body, Maple/Purpleheart/Maple neck with an african mahogany headstock, and a bocote fretboard. its 25.5" scale, 27 frets, pickups will be DS-7/AN-7, and its got a petrucci style forearm carve(can you tell the guy this is for is a big petrucci nut? ) the switching will be handled by a VLX91 super switch i just bought. jumbo fretwire, slipstone nut, and Sperzel open back trimlock tuners with black pearloid buttons. set neck of course, still need to finish shaping the heel, glued it up yesterday morning and let it dry overnight. oh and its going to have a recessed TOM and a natural finish.
That's pretty cool looking.
