    Hey all! Just buttoned up the third of three guitars I've been working on, and thought I'd share. The Mustang is for my wife, the Shell Pink '56-alike is a surprise for my brother in law, and the '54-inspired Snakehead is for yours truly. They're all hotrods in their own way, and I'm happy to answer any questions as they arise. Otherwise, just wanted to share the pretty pictures. :)

    Love that pink esquire. I like the way the ashtray pickup covers look, but I also like to palm mute a lot. It is easy enough to work around?

    It's easy to work around in that it just pops off. It seems like those covers mostly get used for photos, but I had to include it for posterity. There's a stealth pickup hiding under the pickguard as well.

    Very nice! I just did a Shell pink Esquire and my wife and friends thought I was crazy, but when they saw it, they were surprised at how they liked it. Yours looks way better than mine. I hope your brother-in-law loves it.

    From the "in stock" roasted necks
    I thought they are lighter in colour.

    Idle curiosity- does the snakehead feel different bending? Any change in tuning stability?

    The headstock has been finished in satin nitrocellulose to protect my decal. IMG_8885.JPG

    Very nice stuff, I think I'm finally have to give in and try my own build.
