    I dig it! Killer color scheme (I'm big on tortoise guards), very cool inlays, nice choice of pups, very stylish and functional.

    One minor niggle - that bridge pup needs a mounting ring IMO. Otherwise, it's perfect - nice job!

    Thanks E.

    There are still a couple of small things to do.

    Pickup ring is one of them!

    Forgot to add - LOVE the Swamp Ash top...

    And - how did you get the D and G strings to align with the skunk stripe at the headstock? Looks very pro, D!

    If only I`d been as clever with the low E.:)

    I became impatient trying to come up with a logo that I liked and decided I couldn`t wait any longer. Maybe on the next one.

    I bet that Filtertron in the bridge kills! Nice work.

    Beautiful! Love all your choices - color, wood - and pickups! I'd love to give it a go-round.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words.

    Still the honeymoon period but I am pretty happy with it. I only strung it up because I was impatient to hear it and 2 weeks later I`m reluctant to strip it down and finish it. (It plays well considering I havn`t dressed the frets yet !)

    The filtertron is very sweet especially with a bit of gain. Although the 2 pickup position is possibly my favourite...very good for my hamfisted funk meanderings.

    Now I`m of to the dungeon to plan my next contraption.:)

    Thank you all for your kind words.

    I think I might try something with a carved top and humbuckers next, maybe with some real binding as I don`t have a guitar with any of those features.

    This is a great place for inspiration. So many amazing builders to inspire me to improve.

    ,Damian.

    ,Damian. So when are you going to into "production"?

    Best, Pete.
