    Hows about a home made b- bender in the top one?

    If not now, then I wanna see what you could come up with for a bender in a future project.

    I was thinking maybe something like this, if it can be done with a four way switch:confused:

    you need to use that left side neck almost 'as is' for the top neck, making it a tele and lap steel doubleneck.

    You wanna sell it? :lol::lol:

    i think a tele on top strat on bottom would be really cool (since they have the same lower horn). maybe something to consider when you're not bound by the $100 limit. would make for a sonic terror with so many single coil options. not to mention if you could integrate elements of both pickguards and control setups, it would really knock people's socks off.


    regardless, looking good, this is definitely an interesting build

    I've been quietly amazed... up until now and I can't wait any longer.

    This is great work! Wicked ingenuity, man.

    [​IMG]

    decided to lose the horn so I can get to the 21st fret so I redid it all in Photoshop

    [​IMG]

    I stuck the horn on the bottom of the pickguard

    Every time I look at your necks, idk man, there's something about them. They just have this really well made, classy look to them. Can't put my finger on what it is though.
