    Nah, no veneer on the headstock. You'll agree once it's finished.

    Here some pics of both:

    I was working on the finish (filling) when I discovered there was some planer snipe on the tops (both!).

    So I had to sand them both down to correct it. Spent my last elbow grease on those tops. (and it was da***d hot in my shed :D )

    The planer snipe is gone and both bodies are covered with z-poxy again.

    Wow, they are stunning! Did you apply a dye on the fretboards? They are very dark.

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah, in a month you can see them and you will also be able to see the flaws you don't see in the pics :D

    No dye, just plain ebony.

    Oh, I didn't know you used ebony. In post #5 it sure looks like rosewood.

    Yes, you're right. I switched to ebony because the rosewood didn't match the way I wanted it.

    Lord have Mercy! What a pair (so to speak). You and your son have something to really be proud of. They must NEVER leave the family or be split up!

    Again, just amazing work,

    Those look great, and I do like the look of the headstocks with no veneer!
