Oh, and by the way, I honestly WAS NOT bashing the guitar. I think the guitar looks great and I can REALLY appreciate the fact that you did all the body and carves by hand....something that would be extremely time consuming and hard to do. I LOVE the inlay the most and I like the swirl....I appologize if you took my question the wrong way, I just thought sheliding the cavity is something every experienced guitar builder should do, if not for anything as a pre-cautionary measure to insure NO interference any where the guitar may end up.

I know I didn't do it one time when I 1st started building guitars and is was quiet as everything at my house and my shop....I took it to a local music store and plugged it in and it buzzed like everything b/c of all the flourescent lights and other things. So you can never assume just b/c it doesn't hum at ur shop, or your house, that it may not at someone else's. It never hurts to be on the safe side, especially when it only costs you a few bucks and a few minutes. Plus it looks nice & clean too.

I want to make PUBLIC that SIMS sounds like trying to start something i'm not willing to, and don't have the time or patience, to discuss.
At this point, i'm just getting out of responding or quoting something that guy says or do.

Please, everybody excuse my poor english skills.
I'm open to hear any kind of comment, but nothing offensive like this guy's doing.
Thanx to everyone in advance.

what pickups did you use on it? I'm in the process of doing a mahogany body guitar and I was wondering what will sound good.

Doesnt the neck have to actually go through the whole body like on a Gibson Firebird to be a neck through?
Do you put that sticker on every guitar you swirl or did the customer request it?


Looks cool either way.

Wonderful work!
I love how the neck is swirled, to a certain point (or should I say line), and then shows the natural, neck wood.

That is truly a beautiful swirl.

Very, very well done on that AWESOME custom job.

I especially love how the middle pup is not too noticeable.

Actually, I don't think he was being offensive. A little blunt, perhaps, but it was constructive criticism, and a fair point.

Moving on, could I ask how much you would charge for a beauty like that to be built and swirled?
