Im liking the reverse gibson explorer style headstock, very unconventional for a V model but yet it works.. What are the general specs?
#12
I really like what you did with the fretboard by making a big block on the bottom, really cool

I really respect how well it's done, and I applaud you for the amount of skill and effort it must have taken to create art like that, but it's just not my style. I personally don't like it, but it seems like everyone else does, so good on you mate, it's a beautiful instrument.

I love it and I usually hate V's (allthough I'm starting to take a liking to some of them). The block inlays look great on this guitar.

Maple neck, One piece Mahogany body, Ebony fingerboard, Mother of pearl inlays. White neck binding. Glued in neck. one volume one tone, 1 EMG with pup surround.
Body- 38mm deep. Neck - 21mm @1st fret, 24 @16th. 24 frets.
The extra board length was there to hide the tennon going into the body. The guy I made it for didnt want it fretted to the end so I inlaid that and im gonna engrave S.P.V in the pearl and fill it with ebony dust.

Yeah, be good, I like your work. And thank you for using slightly thicker necks- people wanting 19-21mm necks scares me.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

I think the more meat you leave on the neck, the better the guitar tends to sound. better sustain, more stability and a lot nicer tone all round. Some of the best sounding guitars ive played have had bigish necks.

Any chance you could tell me what bridge that is?
or a link to a website that sells it? thanks

It's just a tune-o-matic type bridge, I don't know what brand that one is, but Tonepros make them.

Looks nice, do you think that building a guitar somthing like this one would be hard for a first build?

No, its fairly simple shape, nothing complex. One pickup makes wiring very easy for a first build, I'd say go for it. PS I have a great Seymour Duncan wiring diagram for 2 humbuckers, 1 vol, 1 tone and a three way switch if you need.

^ Yes and no. Seymour Duncan pickups have a different colour code than other pickups.
