    Beautiful, magnificent guitar, and amazing playing.

    But I would really like to hear it played clean, going through the different pickup positions...

    This one seriously tops my 'want' list!
    (and I still don't like birdseye)
    Even my wife likes this one (and she's quite particular).
    Brilliant work, oigun!

    Haha I don't like it too much either...make it look cool, that was the challenge for me:D
    For only a neck with not too much eyes I like it though.

    You're in a league of your own, Eugen.

    Yours is a standard I aspire to but have no chance of reaching for a long time to come.

    Much, much respect!

    That neck pup sounds brilliant. Starting to look like you know what you're doing.

    Careful, you don't want all this praise to go to his head.

    Super nice though.
    I'm still drooling over the machined aluminum and the aluminum wrap on the sides.

    Killer guitar, Oigun! I'm absolutely blown away with the metalwork - how do you do the etching and plating - is it something that mere mortals can pull off, or is there expensive equipment and or processes at play here?

    Thanks! No hocus-pocus, do some research on PCB etching and there are several plating kits available on Ebay. And then a lot of trial and error...:D
