nice. cant get that phone though. Ive got sprint. But I definitely cant wait to see more pics. Are you considering going to school for luthiery? I love doing it, so i cant wait to do the same. I'd love to build are guitar, but the wood part would be impossible for me.

Thanks, and I'll get more pics once I bring it home (my teacher's marking it right now, so I can't go get it until friday). I haven't really considered becoming a luthier as a profession, but I certianly do have an interest in making more guitars in the future, and maybe selling some later on (I have a few more guitars in mind that I'd like to build for myself before I start building any for other people), although I think it'd be more or a hobby or side project than a career.

Guess what came today?

all the other parts!
I've only got 3 pictures of all the stuff, I'm too busy fiddling with all my new toys to take many pictures.
Pickups:

Lots of packing foam, the neck, and all the other parts in a bag:

and all the stuff on my ******* table:


I'm probably not going to be working on this all the time, but as I progress I'll update here. Hopefully I'll have lots of spare time soon and can get it close to finished.

AWESOME! That headstock's pretty wide, im surprised. Oh yeah what tuners did you get, and where from? I cant find black 7 string tuners anywhere for my Ibanez.

the headstock is that wide so I can cut it to whatever shape I want, it's definately not staying that wide. And I got schaller mini-locking tuners from warmoth (www.warmoth.com), just be sure that the tuner holes on your guitar are the right size for them, or you'll need to do some woodworking.

DUDE DON'T FILL THE DENTS!!! Simply get a cloth damp and let it lay on them for about a half an hour. They will swell back up. Sand them off and you are off to the races.

I haven't really got much (or anything) done over the summer because I was working at a camp for the first 3 weeks of summer, then went to my cottage the next week, then worked at a camp in manitoba for 2 weeks, then this week I'm back at the same camp I started the summer with, then for the next two weeks I'm going to the UK, then back to school...
Here's my progress:

I bought a router bit

Yeah, that's it. I really wish I could have spent more time on this, but I've had so much other stuff to do that it's hard to find any time to work on it. If all goes well, then once I get back from vacation I can start working on it again.

BTW, does anyone know where I can buy blue and black dye that will ship to Canada? I'm hoping to end up with a colour like this, and I can't find anywhere that'll ship to me.
