    The body shape and carve are perfect, Chris! That thing is just all kinds of sexy.

    Thanks, Jup. Backatcha on that one!

    Thanks, Jonathan. We know the joys of sanding! (haha)

    Thanks, man! I appreciate that.
    I really made an effort this time to come up with something that would have an appeal factor, rather than just satisfy my quirky whims...
    Turns out that I want it too...(and it's still a bit quirky... haha).

    Thanks, Rob. You know, some speed bumps would be right at home in something like this...:p

    Thanks, Roger!

    Hey Chris, Why yes, yes they would. Maybe wound with 38AWG for an unusual effect... Hmmmm Rob

    Thanks, Doc!

    Now, where is that scheming, rubbing hands together emoticon when I need it...?

    You're making me scheme of a fully-hollow, howling sister to this build.....

    That's the best part! Even when we don't win, we still have an NGD in the next couple of weeks. :D:D:D

    Ninja Turtle says "Hi."

    [​IMG]

    I never get injured on tools... It's always the workpiece I fail to suspect that gets me.
    I'm such a pack rat; normally I'd save something like this for who knows what..., but this one's gone too far, so it gets a ride to the dump:
    [​IMG]

    I'm sure you can imagine what happened... but at least I got my control cavity cover templates:
    [​IMG]
    The astute will recognize that I have indulged my proclivity for paste wax and water putty to make templates for my templates (templatetemplatetemplate...) and also that I screwed said templates to a stick to keep my hands far from the business end of the router.

    I also went a little ADD and finally made a fret beveler...
    [​IMG]

    and sanded back then repainted some pup rings:
    [​IMG]

    Then I remembered that I'm focusing on the control cavities...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    (See what I did there?)

    And that's her finished:
    [​IMG]

    Why is that pencil line there, you ask?
    Well... So I can match up the grain for this:
    [​IMG]

    And this was the after-dinner-Honey-I'm-just-gonna-go-clean-up bit...
    (using the ol' carve-top thicknessing jig to set the angle of the pots so they follow the top...)
    [​IMG]

    Cheers, everybody!

    What angle did you use on your fret beveller?

    7 degrees (yeah, I can't find the symbol... haha).
    I'm going for the school bus fret ends...

    Well look at the big brain on Chris. Neat deal with the nylon washers and bumpers. Consider that idea stolen.
