    Oh, yeah, count me in.

    My Logan Custom solidbody: Mahogany body with Bob's Darkened Mahogany stain, nitro-finished; B/W/B 3-ply pickguard; P-90 neck pup w/ black cover, which against the "blackground" of the blackguard I think gives a stealth pup, quasi-Esquire look; Birdseye Maple neck & board, with amber tint; gold appointments to accentuate the gold tones in the woods.

    Okay, forget about the Phat Cat for a moment. What's the story on this guitar? Is the fretboard ebony or just a dark rosewood? I like the contrasting color scheme of silver body to the dark fretboard. And what's up with that body? It looks like a silver-plated Ruffles potato chip! :eek: :p Is that some optical illusion in the pic, or am I seeing that right?

    My first body build. I love playing this guitar, named it "Popeye". Very unique sound. I almost didn't put a tone control on it, but now I'm glad I did.

    I'm a member-1994 MIM Telecaster Special w/ Epi Coronet P90 in the neck, SD Hot Tele Stack in the bridge. Mighty Mite flat 6 saddle bridge, Schaller locking tuners, pull boost tone pot for bridge P/U, my #1 most versatile guitar. I should use it on every gig, but I have too many toys!

    Thanks for the interest. The body is CNC machined out of a single block of aircraft aluminum. No optical illusion, it looks just like the pic. Fingerboard is Ebony with a 12"radius and stainless steel frets. The pups are custom wound Seymour Duncans, saddles and nut are by Graphtech. The body is hollowed out to reduce weight and this one comes in at 8 pounds. It's a great sounding and feeling guitar.

    The link above shows the builder, Liquid Metal Guitars (LMG) out of Canada.

    I gave Popeye to my son. Missed the P-90 esquire thing, so I built this one, name of "Philo". One-piece body from salvage redwood, 1 3/4" Warmoth neck. Built for comfort, I ain't got no speed.
