Well, this projects are advancing at a slow pace, but Ill hope the 3 of them will be finished by the end of next month.
Here are a few pictures. The first one is a pic of the custom RBM, the others (6) are of the custom PGM (that may turn into a custom RG, wich for the moment is looking pretty rough).
I need opinions regarding 2 issues:
1) I may turn the custom PGM into a custom RG. The mods would be:
- Instead of the f holes, I may put 2 stripes of ebony or granadillo across the body (similar to the RGT2020SOL) dividing the outer bookmatch from the inner bookmatch (mostly because the coloour tone of the bocote is different in both bookmatchs so I may want to enfasize that difference in coulours.
- Add a tone control and a go for an HSS configuration (pups are: sreaming demon and 2 fender american standar sigle coils)
Here is the other question:
There is another project going on (customizing an RT650), but I didnt post any pics of it. The original idea was a bird eye maple top with a cocobolo pickguard, although the top in the RBM looks so good that I may go for the same wood....
What do you think? Ive already got the bird eye maple veneer, and it has the advantage that I could go for a transulcent purple finish. On the other hand If I go with the vavona root burl Ill have to go for a translucent red finish. This will be decided today, so If you have an idea, please let me know!
