    I think I’ve seen one of the op’s guitars before, I dig that magnetic (?) truss rod cover
    The whole thing is a beauty

    Yep, that was the whole idear. Actually a Strat/Lester/PRS mix. It turned out to be no small task for several unanticipated logistical reasons

    Hey, both You and the Guitar sounded GREAT!!!! :cool:

    If I could play that good I'd start crtappin' $30 bills, hee hee!!!

    Still more respect due to ya, @s_tones! I retired from running 3 , 4, 5 axis mills and 2 & 3 axis lathes. Wrote some programs for 2 axis lathes and 3 & 4 axis mills "by hand" before we had our APT and V,5 programming programs. This was for Titanium, aluminum. mag, and some neat 15-5 & 17-4 stainless steels, for commercial airlplane parts. So I kinda have an idea of what it takes to generate guitar bodies, necks and etc.. Easier than doin' it with a chisel and file, I suppose, but by no means "easy"........

    I really like these guitars. They're totally custom, have a unique functional look, and sound great.

    it has been an adventure for sure. Had to learn all that CAD/CNC stuff from the ground up like several others here. But its worth it. I really couldnt do the same quality of work by “hand”. I would have thrown in the towel long ago

    G.A.S. (Or GAS)=Guitar (or Gear) Acquisition Syndrome

    The overwhelming desire to acquire another guitar, amp, etc., even if you don’t need it...

    That is a gorgeous instrument, by the way!
