I had some pieces of flamed maple and mahogany in my garage. Wood was a bit twisted, so didn't know how to use it... so I tried :

Wow. The back looks absolutely beautiful.

Great job! I bet that thing screams.

That looks awesome. Reminds me of a G&L SC-1. Great job.

Yes, it sounds very nice... I had never heard a p90, so I can't compare... I'm a teacher (primary school) and I wanted something more "electric" than the Squier Telecoustic I had for playing with children... So I took the neck out, and built a body. Now, I can play AC/DC at school. The Children will use this guitar, that's why I made it simple : one pickup, one control, no tremolo... We use the guitar to work on mathematics ;) : how deep do I have to drill, which size should have the body, to look like a G&L SC-1, etc ...

Hey, I took this picture of the SC-1 as model, you're right!

I did a copper shielding of the pickup cavity, and notice no hum at all... don't know if some of you experienced the hum p90 seem to be known for... Moreover, the guitar is very light. But mahogany, and flamed maple, are very hard to work. More difficult than the swamp ash I used for my first built :

I'm not usually a fan of "hybrid" kinds of guitars but that looks fantastic. Great job!

I really love this guitar, and especially the dog ear P90. Very, very well executed.
Any chance you'd share a DXF or PDF of the body and pickguard? I'd love to cut some templates of this one.

I only have a jpeg made from the G&L sc2 (taken on G&L website). I printed it on A3 scaling the picture according to the width of the neck, at the last fret. For the pickguard, I draw it "more or less" like the SC1 pictured above, buy Storyboards27.
I will take a picture of my guitar "right over it", and give you the dimensions, so you can use the same way to make your template (print it on A3, or two A4, with Photoshop)

there is 322mm from the neck end to the body end (where the strap pin is). With this info, you can scale the picture to print it at scale 1:1
