    Second custom en route

    I took a deal with UK Luthier Jaden Rose yesterday. He has a spare build on the go at the moment that, though not really to my specs or taste, was too good a deal to pass up:

    Mahogany body with Swamp Ash top - not over-enamoured with the look of Swamp Ash, but it's not entirely ugly, either. Plus, I can look at having it painted at some point.
    H-H config.
    Lo-Pro routing with Lion's claw - not too keen on this detail either, but can live with it.
    Standard control layout - again, would go for Ibanez JPM layout, but this is fine.
    3-piece Maple-Bubinga-Maple neck.
    Rosewood fretboard with offset dots - the piece of Rosewood is very nice, and I simply love offset inlays. My first guitar with them. Yay!

    Jaden is going to stain the headstock to match the body, I've ordered two different decals for it. I've also got all the hardware I need already, coming off a 7620.
    Considering this was an already finished guitar, he's been really flexible on making some changes to it and his service has been first rate. I will definitely use Jaden for my next custom build.

    I've also go an Alder body with a flamed maple top on order from Elysian, and that should be done within a couple of weeks. That's also getting 7620 hardware, as well as the neck.

    I know, I know. Worthless thread without pics. I'll get some posted soon.

    Cheers, Shawn.

    This is finished now. Jaden is sending it to me. I've already got the hardware for it; all black. The headstock now matches the body's colour. I've bought two decals for it. Not sure which to go for. Black or chrome?

    If that nut pad you wanted is for any of that, it went out Monday so you should see an envelope from me pretty soon.

    Congrats on your purchases.
