Custom Project: JS, neck-thru, 24 frets, TUBARÃO GUITARS SWIRL: LOTZ of pics inside!!

This is a project i'm working on, for a friend/customer here in Brazil.
Here are some specs:

JS body made of
1 piece brazilian mahogany body,
H-S-H (no rings) w/ Lion's Claw,
Gotoh Floyd Rose and tuners,
brazilian MAHOGANY NECK
brazilian rosewood fretboard w/ insane Goth inlay,
scaloped neck, 6th to 24th fret,
glued set-neck construction,
WAYNE Guitars reversed headstock,
neck white binding,

BLACK, GREEN and BLUE swirl, including 'a little bit' of white.


All about the construction of the guitar is made by a very talented guy and my master builder, luthier Adão Ribeiro, the guy that helps me out with guitars and custom projects since 1994.
He's updating his site soon.

My responsability is the SWIRL only. But anyway, a huge responsability!!!
Meanwhile, let's see some pics!!!! (i just love this part!!! hahahahahahaha).


Wayne Guitars reversed headstock, made of brazilian mahogny

Looks excellent but aren't suppose to swirl it? It will be a hassle now that the neck is glued to the body. or is there a change of plan?

So you gonna deep the body and then hold the guitar upside down and deep the headstock? or do you have a deep enough deeping tank and you are planing to deep the whole thing?

Hi will, www.arsguitars.com does not work. Is it completely down for the update? or am I completely wrong regarding the website name?
