    Thanks! Most of my tools for this were pretty decent but my carving stuff was REALLY below par. Arm and tummy cut were sawed to depth with a handsaw, Chi's out and then smoothed out with an orbital sander. It was hell tbh

    These days, other than the CNC, I have a flap disc thing that hogs through wood pretty quick. My neck and arms have been thanking me.

    Good job!

    Out of curiosity, why did you go with an R-Trem rather than an S-Trem?

    Thanks! Cost vs necessity more than anything else.

    I had an S trem on my Carvin HHX and it is still up there as one of my favorite trems. Lots of bad reviews of the R-trem but I didn't hate the one on my GR4, the biggest issue was fixing the leaning posts (which the J-custom unit does).

    The original planning and woodwork on this was done when I had the GR4 so I could use the parts off of it for fitment, so it was originally routed for an R anyway just because it's what I had on hand. I ended up loving this build so much, a second with an S is potentially in the cards.
