    Beautiful! I really like the body design, the pickguard shape,
    the simple controls (2 knobs, not 4), and the recessed
    truss rod adjust cover on the headstock.

    It also looks like a comfortable guitar to play. How does it
    sound?

    Hmmm...

    I pretty much love everything about it.

    What does "SS" mean?

    Very cool indeed.

    Can you explain a little more about how you did the inlay on the headstock? Thanks,

    I'm not a GM afficianado but I'm familiar with seeing Chevelles, Novas, and Camaros. That front end throws me off. Is that some type of custom front end? What's the base car model? Is it a South American produced version that we wouldn't be all that familiar with up here near Canada?

    Looks suspiciously like a '70s Chebby Nova.
