Very, very nice indeed. It will look ace with the bright white knobs and a white neck humbucker. Looks good though, bet it took ages to get the clearcoat right.

i really dig that, but a few things that keep it from flawless in my book are the gaping mike-holes and the finish at some spaces, but i think the last is just the lightning. Congrats.

What are mike holes ? And yes, The finish isn't perfect, Neither are the pics ;-) Lighting indoors requires at least 2 light source's for the best flame to show, but as i'm not a pro, i dunno how to cut the glare effect down

Pickups = Microphones = Mike. I'm talking about the leftover cavities which could be covered up by any plastic you've carved to fit in, or you could use cedar sawdust and stitches to glue to the "walls" of the microphone-wells... but that would be a bit stupid if you'd want to buy other mics.


Oh well, screw it. Nice guitar.

Well, pickups aren't microphones, they're magnets

strangly, brighter than my UV777BK, with plenty of sustain, maybe thats just differance in the body woods, but the action is lower than any 6 i've managed to set up without buzz, she is a shweet playing geetar

You're obviously not terribly familiar with direct-mounted pickups. Just about ANY guitar where the pickups are directly mounted (meaning NO pickguard) will have to have cavities such as those so as to accomodate the "ears" of the pickups. In this case, it would be idiotic to use a pickguard to cover them up- the top is far too nice!
