    I just finished this one up yesterday. While I have built quite a few acoustic guitars in the past few years this is the first electric I have built in over 20 years. Its is a solid mahogany with a hard maple cap and no weight relief. Compound radius ebony fretboard. I custom wound the mini hums myself.

    Is the binding really marquetry? How much did it weigh in the end? It IS a very pretty guitar!

    Yes the binding is real marquetry. Each one of those little maple tiles cut by hand. It weighs 10.4 lbs ready to play.
