When thoughts evolve to objects !

Postby MetalHead » Sat May 13, 2006 11:19 am

I've bitched at various forums about it.
I've bitched about pickups and finishes and what not.
But finally, this little baby has evolved from nothing more than a thought :)

Locking nut:

lic.Floyd on a neck routed for an original one. looks fugly but it works

Operation springcavity:

had to work it with a chisel to get more space for the springs. will have a coverplate shortly :D


So, feel honored, this is the first time I've posted pictures of the final product.
No one has seen it yet, except some friends who visited a few days ago.

I'm still struggling with adjusting the stringheight and the neck,
but it's close now. Very close :D
