Nice color on the top. What kind of body binding is this (is it pinstripe accent line)?

That looks really nice!

How did you do the binding?

And please don't say that you're going to sell this one (Because I'll have to buy it and then I'll have no money, my house will be repossesed and I'll have to resort to busking in tube stations with it. And the mrs will give me a right beating )

Nathan, She and my UV and other RG7(not started work yet) custom are keepers, I don't play 6's much (if at all) there is too much lurve gone into her to sell

The binding is "violin purfling" black/white/black and basically i used an extremly sharp knife to cut a channel (knife was modified with a steel block, exact width of binding, depth was shallow then shaved the top of the binding back)

I think that answers all questions :-)

On the plus side, Althou i got major ripped on a full set of black rg7 hardware (all hardware) i have a very good freind whom has "lent" me his black hardware while he does'nt play his rg7620, So i have enough to put it all together and twang a few strings ... I have a Chrome nut (needs pads), and Eddie is sending me a set of chrome tuners (what a absolute star) all i need is to accumulate enough funds to purchase a lo-pro 7 in chrome too, But i have a certain MirrorBall to get posted which is my MAIN priority

The back has been sprayed today, i never realised how much abuse it's had but it'll take a few weeks of sorting out (oh for the use of LGM's spray booth)
