    I am really liking this, the wood laminations are looking great. Good to see the body coming together like that.

    Thank you Dazzaman
    Can't glue it together yet though.
    Every piece still needs work.
    knobs, f-hole, body cavity, comfort cuts, round overs, etc.
    Still got to finish neck too
    dots, carve, frets, logo, etc.

    but I feel I made decent progress today (mostly last night) and its starting to really look like something.

    I like number one if you can accomplish what you want electrically that way...cleaner. Things are already really "busy" visually with the pickups, etc., on the centerline plus the stripes.

    This is awesome 2blue2.
    The pickup arrangement really sells me on it. I think you'll just be able to use the pickup selector switch to flip through the classic decades. '50s, '60s, '70s. (maybe not that order)

    Great stuff. Another couple pickups and it will probably play itself! [emoji23]

    I'm going to be the dissenting opinion and say I like option 7. It spreads things out a bit. This option distracts less from the lighter colored accent lines on the body.

    Man oh man, serious artillery right there! Looks awesome, you going to paint it? I may have missed that part, and/or my memory is terrible
