    Just finished this build:

    60563245_1357793611027842_4734216749572947968_o.jpg

    Also rewired this one: swapped a Super Distortion for a Huevos 90 and added a killswitch.

    i heard u can put lumber in a hot car, cover it with black plastic, and if the temperature in the car reaches 150 degrees, it will kill any worms or worm eggs. i might be wrong about the temp. i also read that the worms/beetles/wood boring insects will only travel from one board to another if the boards are touching. maybe if we sticker our lumber pile with plastic or metal spacers, that'll help. but maybe this doesn't apply to all species. just some internet stuff i read after i bought a bunch of lumber that had powder post beetle damage on some of it

    Gage package for my father in-laws boat. Putting all new furniture on it so decided to spruce up the gages. The wood is thermally modified ash.

    The only issue I see with the design is the size of the neck pocket. Not much there to hold the neck. Looks really cool though.

    That’s a concern of mine also. But this will also have a top. This is a test body. It will have a .25in carved top. So that neck pocket will actually be an inch and a half deep. And it will be a set neck. So there will actually be quite a bit of material to hold the neck in place.

    This is a better photo of the neck pocket design. The rendered one doesn’t really show details. A0B3719F-6FE1-483A-85AB-149D5D5DCD02.jpeg

    I've done set necks with that much or less a few times and it has worked well. As long as you have about 3/8"-1/2" behind the heel, it should hold pretty well, assuming the wood used is quality and the fit is good.
