This time I built the guitar for myself, for old time sake.

It has been a while since last time I build a guitar for myself or even anyone in the family.
Logistics, wood, covid illness, getting married and all other things, it has been a long two years or so.
but couple month ago I was able to get a hold of a beautiful piece of spalted maple and the fire ignited - did some custom design,
and I want to seek help from here you folks for a name for this special guitar-
tell me what you think.

it has a hand wired jimmy page wiring in the 4knob layout, and two fairly powerful alnoco II pickups, when it split, it splits to two true single coils that also sounds amazing.
I wish the site allows me to attach videos, seeing my own design getting carved out from the CNC machine has a magical feeling to it.

When I first saw the body wood I was thinking of Black Limba, I would have never guessed Spalted Maple. The Strat neck shape is a nice bonus. Beautiful build.
