A few weeks ago I found a dirt cheap ($70) 3-piece mahogny paddlehead neck (Allparts I think) on a swedish auction site, and the seller was actually located in my exact same area (that never happens in a small town like this) so I took it right away.
Then I found this un-routed Explorer body on Ebay for about $100, so I snatched it quick before anybody else did.
I wanted to make it a Hum-Single guitar, but I routed a bit too much so I made it regular Hum-Hum instead.
The neck pocket is tight as shit and I can basically lift the whole guitar even before I've glued it! (yes I will use proper Titebond wood glue for this... not superglue, sorry)
Then I decided... Instead of taking time to cut and rebuild the paddle to fit a regular Explorer hockey headstock... Why not make it a Flying V instead? Faster, and it will look fucking cool too.
The body will be Rocka White and the neck will be tung oiled (with Rocka White front of headstock).
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
