Good news! The engine is back in my subi. Should have that running by tomorrow, then next week it'll be back on this project. Also, why not a pic of said car?

I'll take your word for it. You would know better than I would since you build a lot of guitars from scratch. I just remember reading something on a forum somewhere once that someone's strat style trem didn't work too well with a gibson style headstock angle. I'm never actually had any experience with that, so it could just be bull shit. just figured better safe than sorry.

EDIT: Glad your car is fixed, TS.

It's not headstock angle, it's neck angle. If you have a flat top guitar with a strat trem, and you put an angled neck on it (ala gibson) obviously, you're geometry will be all wrong. Since this thing is a flat top it'll be simple. Flat neck pocket, flat top, flat bridge. Done. Hopefully I'll get back to work on it tomorrow, btw.

Yes very much so I did. It took a lot, and looking back, I probably should have gone with poly because I think I could build it up a lot faster and have a nicer looking end result. Also I would have gone with a lighter color of plaid, because it looks like it's permanently wet now and dark green wet plaid is meh. And it sounds about how I imagined, very dark with TONS OF OUTPUT hahaha

Your cleans must be overdistored, XD

Now, do the same but instead of buckers, put 8 SC sized rail buckers.

With 4 humbuckers, I'm suprised other less powerful guitars aren't orbiting yours.

Looks good though, in a kind of really trashy/ghetto way!

Terribly sorry, but I just didn't feel like buying 8 switches, routing a cavity and wiring them all in. Besides, I like it fine without. Maybe later?

As for those of you who said video



video. Also it should be noted that my amp is not a high gain amp by any stretch of the imagination. It's just an old Gibson tube amp that I've modified.
