It's nothing fancy this time around, but it has served to prove out the design, and I think it's going to be a killer guitar.

It has an alder body, 5 piece maple & walnut set neck, ziricote fretboard, 24 jumbo frets, Sperzel & Hipshot hardware, and a Seymour Duncan Custom 5 bridge / Jazz neck.

The pics below are where I am today. I just have to do the final sanding and apply the finish.






This guitar will be raffled off for charity next month at a little music fest that I attend every year in Kentucky. You have to be present to win (sorry!), but if you want the details - let me know.

Changing strings on a bigsby is alarmingly similar to flossing the teeth of a pissed-off sabertooth tiger while blindfolded.

My ideal woman would be a grossly overweight woman who would happy go jogging, come home all sweaty and let me put my dick under her armpit while she shuffles a pack of cards.

Stay classy, pit.

It's about 1.25" on this guitar.

Yeah, you got me all excited with the title, at least it is going to charity.

And thanks for those pictures, I got an 100 on the presentation. I could have written a book, but I limited it to 11 pages, being as it was supposed to be a 2-3 page procedure, and I left out a lot of details. The actual presentation took up about 30-35 min. Everyone elses took about 5.

Wow, I am really impressed by the sleek minimalism of that headstock. Very nice design. Another thing I'm a fan of with your builds (...and which I've always drawn onto my own ideas myself) is that you blend the belly and forearm contours into the body's outline.
