    jkingma, Yeah, I thought that might have been the vise you had your eye on - they are great several of my friends have them, and I almost got one myself, except I opted for the Kim Ball vise instead - which I am very pleased with.

    When people talk about an expensive vice, it is usually something a bit more immoral and habit forming.

    Love a Tele with P90's, nice job on the head stock too. Never saw a fretboard with dots laid out that way..

    I do like it when bike bits appear out of context. Is that a left hand crank, or a right hand crank taken from a tandem crossover drive? Standard 170mm? or maybe 175 for a little extra leverage? Would a handle built on a pedal spindle give a little more control? Have I spent too much time using the neck pickup?

    Congrats and well done

    I built my own repair vice because postage to Aussie was worth more than the vice.

    Congrats on the award! That's a great build - somewhere between a Tele and an SG with P90s. Other than the top, are the body and neck mahogany? Gibson or Fender scale? From the second pic it looks like it might be a bolt on - is that right? I love the curve at the top of the headstock.

    Jkingma. Congrats! Well deserved. Beautiful guitar.

    P Bill. In case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a bird on your guitar neck. Either that or there’s a guitar body attached to your bird’s perch.
