    Echoing others, this thread is way too tame for a Rocka thread.

    I came in here to see you routing something with a sharpened spoon.

    I also expected a claw-hammer neck pocket and headstock that was relic'd by a rabid beaver...

    But, as I said, I'm really looking forward to seeing what Rocka comes up with. It's looking good.
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    Looks awesome dude! Also you should totally put some sort of humbucker sized p-90 in the neck

    UPDAET!!!

    Neck is glued on.
    I'm going to try assembling the hardware and see if I can get it to work before I'm starting with the finish



    I accidently lowered the router too much when doing the front recess for the floyd, so I damaged the edge of the rout. But eh. I can fill it and paint it over no biggie!
