Hah, I seriously don't think I'm ready for that. I appreciate the comments though.

It's looking pretty finished. The nut needs adjusting, it needs cavity covers, and there's a patch of finish on the headstock which buffed through...

Dang man, that looks incredibly clean and well done. Looks like it could be straight from the ESP custom shop.

I really do mean it though. I'll happily buy all the things needed for you to build one. Plus extra and beer too.

Just an offer.


I feel like ive been bugging you forever to build me one...

I'll stop being a stalker now

it's not the building material that's expensive - it's the manhours building.


Looks great, Minty. I really like that colour you've taken with it.

Awesome feedback guys, thank you! The next one should break away from the ESP aesthetic a little. Maybe.

Nah dude, saying your guitars look too much like ESP is like saying "That woman looks too much like Angelina Jolie"

Neither am I, but she did play Lara Croft so I suppose I have to at least pretend to like her. Looking forward to it (y)

That's the most tenuous logic I've heard in a long time!

Here's how we're looking for the new one:





I thought that I'd already taken a picture of the sapele board before starting, but I was mistaken. It was basically a mantlepiece and had been thrown away. Apart from a few nasty screws and thick varnish there was nothing wrong with it. Did I check the moisture? Did I hell.

The body has a mahogany core with flamed maple veneer and sapele wings. I'm freestyling this one, so the other details are to be decided.

Edit: It's only 30mm right now and definitely needs a cap - probably flamed maple for the sake of originality.

You obviously don't know how obsessed I am with Lara Croft at the minute then

The bodywork is looking great anyway. You're like a machine with that cutting out and stuff.

Thanks man. God knows it's the easy part.

I'm waiting on a flamed maple cap at the moment.
