    2 Mayones(ish) builds (pic heavy)

    So hello guys!
    I'm new to this forum but not new to guitars.

    In this thread I want to show what I'm working on atm.

    So after a long time planning and drawing, I'm finally to begin the build of two Mayones Regius shaped guitars. The first one is going to be a clear finish with tru oil, the second one is going to have a pink burst. I hope to get the pink burst as flashy as Dylan from Daemoness does his, but I've never done it before so it's a nice challenge.

    The drawing isn't exactly a regius as they have a flat top I believe. I will also keep my top flat and make the back at an angle.

    The Specs:

    Strings: 6 string
    Scale: 648mm
    Frets: 24
    Neck/body system: Bolt-on with T-nuts
    Fingerboard: Ebony
    Neck wood: Maple, Walnut 11ply
    Body wood: Mahogany
    Top/headstock wood: Curly Maple
    Nut: Graphtech
    Binding: White, Albalone sandwich
    Inlays: Dots
    Hardware color: Black
    Bridge: Hipshot 0.125 6 str
    Yuners: Gotoh Schaller style, mini
    Pickup Bridge: Bare Knuckle Pickups Cold Sweat
    Pickup Neck: DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton
    Controls layout: Volume, Tone, 3-way Switch
    Knobs: Ebony
    Strap buttons: Gotoh
    Color: Clear coat an pink burst
    Finish: Tru Oil, Danisch Oil

    Drawing in AutoCAD

    The routing templates!

    Some nice ebony fingerboards!

    That's it for now
    I'll update as soon as I get more work done!

    Impressive so far! Don't make this a flat top, IMO.

    Nice work! I quite like that headstock shape... it goes nicely with the body, and is distinctive.
