Oh yeah, that’s elegant. Well done!
Strap button is over the 10th fret, inlay at the 15th... sneaky!
Easy mistake to make. And, better that than routing them too deep!
This thing is even more gorgeous than the last time I mentioned how gorgeous...
Ooooh, clever. I’ve done the single B string thru-body before - you’re exactly right, it’s an easy way to accommodate regular long scale strings....
Mmmm, delicious. Such precise work!
Pickups in series is an easy and almost-free way to get there.
I have to say, the more I look at this the more I want to build one just like it!
Well of course, that would be 5 to the 5th power!

... a lot!!
Couldn't have done it without your help @Dadagoboi - thanks for the body template!
See, that's exactly why we love having @2groggy around!!! :D:lol:

That’s because Watts don’t make noise. Speaker cones make noise. And while the Watts are necessary to move the speaker cones, it’s the total...

For guitar, you can stick any decent speaker into any decent box and make good sound.

Nearly there now.
Cherry is one of my favorites; one of my preferred trio of domestic woods, along with walnut and maple. All three of them work wonderfully, are...
