Very nice desing! very good for your first bild, I don't like the head-stock but that's just my own humble opinion. Your guitars have an organic (not machine made) look to them i hope they sound good, Good job sir!

I don't like "racing stripe" neck throughs, but the second one is something I'd go for :) I like the thole solid look of these.

how abot some less "art" shots and some more illustrative shots, whole body, neck joint and so on? :)

really like the end loaded strings, really like the finish, really like the hardware!!!

from the front the dial position makes it look a little like its been skewed in photoshop. i htink space them out a little.... but thats entirely personal preference.

end loaded strings look really cool

I admire anybody who takes this sort of thing on. It takes a very skilled and exact talent to even get the thing to sound a note nevermind build one and get it playing and looking well. I think it's a great job and best of luck from a fellow Irishman!!!

I love the fact that it's a bit different, and the string loading idea looks superb.

Have you got any straight-on shots of the body?

I love that first one. I particularly love the end loaded string concept. I don't think I've seen that before. I myself really love the body style too. Great job man.

I like them! The string through to the bottom is pretty cool. I was thinking of doing that myself. I had seen it somewhere, but it's been a while. It's definitely something you don't see much of, which is what I like. Something different.

My hobby turned into more than. And now since I'm laid off and looking for work this has the potential to put a few extra bucks in my pocket.

I love the beautiful cross breed of Carvin and Caparison! I love the string thru design and the wood! It's just yummy.

I just don't like the single coil in the neck but I don't hold it as a bad thing 'cos if it were mine I'd build it differently and have the same design disagreements with some people.
