Very nice Gary,
I like the different colors in there. Should look good with a finish on it.

Hey Itch, has anyone ever forwarded pics of their completed set ups to you? If you're not already doing it, may I be so bold as to ask you to start including a note with the bodies that asks the buyer to feel free to send any pictures of the completed set up?

I'm dying to see some of these bad boys with some lacquer and necks on them.

BTW, great job, once again, love the color in this one.

Another awesome guitar body Gary. Just out of curiosity buddy, how long does it take you to make one of these from start to finish?

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Wow...great design! Absolutely beautiful choice of wood. How expensive is quartersawn African Mahogany? I think I might be interested in using it on a project of mine.

Ken,Maybe 1 day,if the glue up is done.Spike,Its all from the same pallet,same price,the trick is to be able to tell with the ends painted and rough sawn makes it difficult.
Taylormade,I might just do that,Im curious too!
