    Just got shipping email from PGK that the "bones" are on the way.

    Specs:
    Single cut Jr
    Baseball bat neck
    6100 ss frets
    Cream neck binding
    Dot inlays
    Ebony board
    Ebony headstock overlay
    2 piece African hog body
    Soapbar route bridge only p90

    Pickup will be a Fralin hum canceling p90

    Will post updates as parts arrive

    EDIT: Since this thread got bumped, I wanted to apologize that all the photos are gone (stupid photobucket - now using imgur). So I'll post at least one here for those interested in how this turned out.

    I just like saying 'baseball bat neck'.

    Sounds like a legit build.

    I built one a couple of years ago, great experience, killer guitar!!
    I just switched out my bridge yesterday for the Mojoaxe bridge.
    I haven't restrung it and checked it out yet!!
    Enjoy your build, I like building as much as playing, almost!!

    Subbed. I've been immensely curious about these kits, especially the set necks, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.

    Do PGK do 6100SS frets ? I asked them a few months back and SS wasn't an option ?

    Lumber looks nice and quartersawn. The neck looks like a snug fit. What color are you going with?
