I thought they looked nice, so i was like eh, sure?
Looking back, that was a stupid call on a first build, thank god it didnt turn out horrible

Quote by deftonesordie
looks lke that neck needs a little more carving, no?


already did it This neck has a unique shaped neck though. Chunky on the top, thinner towards the middle/bottom. Suits my hand quite well

I did trapezoids on my first build (dots first, then realized my buddy made me a 6" radius block instead of 12", sanded the radius down, redrilled the dots and unfortunately they were crooked so I went with traps), sharkfins on second build with a hand cut eagle holding a scroll on the back, hand cut feathers on 3rd build, LEDs in the 6th build... yea, i need to finish some builds

I'd just like to point out that sexual ribbon sapele on the back was purchased from my "hand selected" stock and the binding materials were all from allparts purchased through yours truly at Timpson Music with my special 25% off discount

lookin' good bobby... let's see that thing finished!!!

it's not done as you can see, but i figured i might as well update. When it's 100% done, you get real picture, so you can actually see the stain on top

Not real crazy about the 12th fret inlay, but the guitar in general looks real nice. For a first build you should be very proud.
