NEW Custom build! (pics inside)

Hello all,

It's that time again...time for a new custom built guitar. The body is flame alder with some nicely figured bubinga on top, the neck is highly figured bocote with a cocobolo fretboard. The neck also has a "zero fret", 24 frets with a 25 inch scale.

It'll get locking sperzel tuners, active duncan blackout pickups, and a tonepros bridge. Should be done in a couple weeks if I'm lucky. Enjoy the pics!

That wood grain on the neck looks really sweet. It's gonna be a beast . . .

Thanks Colin. I think it will be . My favorite guitar has a cocobolo board so hopefully this'll play as nicely as that one does.

Also, if anyone has any info to add about zero fret besides the basic stuff it says online, I'd love to hear it!

Thanks. It's a veneer, its not a solid wood top. I don't really like solid wood tops on guitars. Its for the look basically, not the tone

Nope. I had an custom explorer before that I just bought outright, but it turned out to be 24.75 scale (i only play 25 or 25.5) so I got rid of it and now am gettin' this one done.
