2 Mayones(ish) builds

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!

May be an off topic question but what camera were you using?, it looks pretty good. By the way good job. You show very well the work of a luthier

Damn nice pictures. Will you use any dye or polish on the ebony fretboard to make it oily?

Wow! Nice looking work! Also, I guess everyone goes mad when you throw some depth of field into a guitar build I've got a 550D as well, although just the standard 18-55 for me (I do like it though). Maybe I should start taking classier pictures of my build.

ebony doesn't need oil, or even take it very well.

just sand that thing up to 2000+ grit, then buff it.
