New SG guitar build

So my latest guitar build is for my friend. He has a rather unique request: a set thru neck sg design, mahogany neck and body with spalted maple top (carved). a seymour duncan blackout humbucker bridge pickup and a seymour duncan blackout single coil neck pickup. 22 frets. 1 volume, 3 way switch, jem style output jack. yellow stain on front, leaving the back and neck natural. black hardware, black binding. nitrocelllulose lacquer finish. hardtail gotoh bridge. I think i covered everything..

Its quite along in the build so far so I'll post pictures to get everything all caught up!

nitro is over rated. save your money and get some poly, it works better... granted thats your call.

Look forward to seeing it.
