    That looks great! Did you make that? If so do you have a build thread? I'd love to see some of your methods for getting that worn checked look.

    Looks great! Are there any pictures of the back? From the side, it looks like tiger-print!

    I love the wood grain lines/cracks through the finish too. Looks really good!

    Fresh Roasted . Extra heavy .
    Again , some are gonna hate .
    These are sandwich thicker bodies .

    You can see the pin holes in the tighter grain pieces and top is a thicker veneer .

    I need to measure but I use these bodies for my fabric tops and the Tweed Tops .

    They have the look and vibe to go with the look of those .
    Fun builds unique too .
    Some love and hate with these , but each his own . I think it’s a cool option to have something like this in the collection.


    Hell , what you want to see ?


    Cowboy or I got some cool Bandana fabric too . 4C73295F-DE14-4110-8AFB-3A66A51B3620.jpeg A3D2981A-A7A3-46C9-8CC9-A0E509960996.jpeg 1A0BADFF-84D6-49B5-990E-E56948231250.jpeg F709E4D8-014E-448B-BE4A-C27BE8F1D516.jpeg 4C73295F-DE14-4110-8AFB-3A66A51B3620.jpeg A3D2981A-A7A3-46C9-8CC9-A0E509960996.jpeg 1A0BADFF-84D6-49B5-990E-E56948231250.jpeg F709E4D8-014E-448B-BE4A-C27BE8F1D516.jpeg

    Gorgeous!! Having built a P90 version recently, I like the HB neck pickup / tele SC bridge approach you took. I keep finding the tele bridge pickup lacking.

    Looks really cool. Really love the shotgun shell knobs. Think I'd like the graphics turned 90 degrees so they could be appreciated while the guitar was being played, though; unless it's gonna spend a lot of time on a stand or meant to be a wall-hanger, of course.
