Talking Custom on its way! Upddated: PIC(S)

Well, it's been months now, and finally it's finished, so I'll be posting some pictures of my new baby as soon as I get it. I havent actually seen it yet, so it'll be a surprise right out of the box! I am well excited, which is why I just had to post about it!

But basically it is a maple neckthrough with swamp ash wings and quilted top, rosewood board. Oh, and a nice (hopefully bookmatched as i have lost the specs i sent through, another surprise waiting there) reverse headstock as I do love those things! The most curious I am is towards the inlay, I didnt exactly give them an easy job drawing my inspiration from the necronomicon and using the sigil of Pazuzu, the lord of all fevers and plagues (I thought it was suitably evil all things considering).

So I wait with baited breath!

Re: Custom on its way!

As my webspace has been suspended as they considered the CoF test site to be "pornographic" or something I have no webspace to put the one pic they've sent me on

If anyone has any host space to put it up on, and if they wouldn't mind i can post a pic of the body, dont have one of the neck as they only sent one picture!

Pics in the mail

Finish is (cant see it in the pic, so I am not sure, will have to wait untill i get it in proper light) Purple to black burst over a quilted maple top it looks fairly reddish in the pic though. Still very cool

It's also been so long ago that i specced it, and have lost the spec email that i sent, that I have no idea what the toggle switch is for! LOL

Re: Custom on its way!

Well, i can edit the last post, but i have found out it's a simple on/o0ff switch LOL should have guessed really...

Apart from that neck is a slightly thicker version of the wizard, pups are air norton(n)/blue velvet(m)/tone zone(b) with standard jem-like wiring apart from the toggle switch added.

I'll have to take some pics myself when i finally have it. Fed Ex cant pick it up yet as aparently LA is getting rained under ??!?!?!???!?!??
