Don't want to hijack the thread and i do understand, having built some guitars myself and do all setup, electronics work. Different as i bought parts and assembled the whole thing. I understand the satisfactory thing. If thats what it is, good for you.
How many do you have now?
DIYs? I dont know. I've gotten rid of most of mine over the years some way or another (broken, lost, stolen, sold, etc) Im gonna redo that 540s with a purple quilt, and ATTEMPT to do binding, doin that RG (almost done!), that MM1 soonish, um. I had been out to sea for like 30 months the past 3 years I Was in the navy (no im not joking), so I am just now getting a chance to really get into everything. And then, my fault completely, I did a REALLY crappy swirl on on my vbk, so I took a heat gun to the paint to get it to come off, and while I was stabbing away, I didnt realize I was gouging chunks of wood out
... So I actually bondoed the entire back of the guitar, and am in progress of getting that smoothed out
Gonna re swirl it blue/black instead of green/black. probably get Nate to build me a blue vine neck to match. Heck, I may even convert it a rear route (MORE BONDO!
edit : when I got my first guitar, I started getting into RAtM, so I Was checkin out tom morrellos stuff. I noticed he had a bunch of switches and stuff on his guitars, so I took the guts out of my cheap flanger and distortion pedals, and soldered them in series to the input jack, and had the signal buttons taped to the bottom. To get it to fit, I had open the rear cover and chisel it out haha. About 6 months later I discovered yngwie, so I scalloped my fingerboard
haha. I've always been a tinkerer, and I get bored easily,
