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!

Cheers,
Koen

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

Looking good!

If you do carve the tops, be very careful over the control cavity. It's rather easy to carve too thin and poke through into the control cavity.

Is there a "lesson learned the hard way" smilie? Maybe it's this combination:

:eek: :pissed: :scream2:

Well I'm not carving the top, :) so that wouldn't be a problem. But thanks anyway. :winning:

Another update:






I've been busy with the neck lately.

Next up:
- Rout the neck cavity.
- Fit the neck.
- Rout the binding channels and glue the binding.
- Make the neck profile.
- Create the curves in the back of the body.

See ya!
