On this new shaped one, doesn't your arm rest right about where the point is on the top edge of the body?

No sir, you cant even feel its there. The bevel is so steep it feels like a roundover.

Here is some progress.
Neck is bound in walnut with a figured maple highlight.
The body will be dyed black.

Cool, I don't like the shape as much as your explorers but I always like seeing new shapes. Good work as always.

Lawn's looking a bit tatty explorer

I really like the contrast of the body/neck woods. This one will be nice once it's oiled up!

Love the look of that ash dyed black! Great job on the redwood too, looks absolutely stunning. Do you ever take requests on builds? Or just build what you like and rely on a buyer? For instance would you create a non-reverse headstock if someone requested that on a build?

It depends on how far out of spec people want to go. If its something WAY out there, i wont do it. But it if is something along the same lines, then yes, i do.

Absolutely not... In fact, you should relocate your business to Europe :-)

Haha, good to know.
I got the black one cleared and buffed today. Came out really nice.
IT is really hard to take pictures of though. Black has a really high reflectivity, so it always has some type of glare on it.
It is one of my favorite guitars i have made so far though.

Damn that is hot.

What finish did you use over the black? Is it a matt clear?
