    That is sleek. Tan + white (pickups) is a cool color choice. I'm a big fan of Lace Sensor pickups, too.

    The figuring on the neck wood is intense. Where do you get your wood?

    Excellent! Similar to a build I've wanted to do for the last couple of years including the tamo. In this one the pickups are put in through the spring cavity in the back.

    Your colors and wood choice are much nicer.. Is the tamo veneer?

    Stunning guitar.
    I can't get used the no pickup rings look on single coils or humbuckers. I know it's common these days but I think that guitar would look better with some wood or metal rings. Just a taste thing...looks unfinished to me.
