    LOL, I was about to post a link when I saw you've already posted there--it's my Brainy tribute build.

    And yours gets better and better as more details come to light. You really have a talent for design, not to mention execution!

    That is one of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen. Love double binding and the matching bound pickguard.

    HAHA!!! Ratio, that's an awesome post, you put a big smile on my face!!! Wouldn't that be cool!!! The art work on the right is my sweet, little girl's. On the right is a painting I found in the basement of an apartment I lived in 15 years ago. Tenant before me just left it, I kinda fell in love with it!

    That's gorgeous! No such thing as too much walnut. I just finished my first from scratch build and used walnut on the top.

    I've got a nice book matched piece of burl walnut for an LP build somewhere down the road.

    Beautiful Guitar Adam! I'm doing a Walnut Tele as well ... like yours, mine is about "the wood". I'm not skilled / equipped to do a neck ... but I'm thoroughly impressed with your guitar. I'll come back to you to discuss finishing! Very well done. Care to list what you went with in terms of hardware?
