Just missed last month's comp, but the final knobs have now arrived, so here it is.

I call it a "PearlCaster" because of the mother of pearl and white colour. I am completely impressed with the sound. I am attributing it to the Gotoh Classic pickups, and the wood used, but for whatever reason, it has a super bright sparkle to the highs, and clean punchy bass. The bridge pickup really bites and the neck pickup, when tamed with the tone control (which works very nicely) can be nice and jazzy.

Details:-

- NG Rosewood body

- Queensland Maple neck

- Indian Rosewood fingerboard

- Polar White

- Black binding

- MOP scratch plate

- MOP dot markers

- Gotoh Classic pickups

- Gotoh tuners

- ash-tray bridge

- mix of gold/brass and chrome fittings

been a while...

baby and business keepin me busy.

Custom blackburst les paul clone.

Got the headstock and fretboard off ebay all nos stuff. all standard specs. classic 57 pups which are unreal. fretboard was all cracked up so I aged the binding the same way by staining it black with a lacquer thinner based black dye. Aged it a little bit to get an older look. So I sanded the black off in a couple key spots. Exact carved top.

How I got here. was highly figured flame top stained black and sanded back. then I did a burst in black and clear coated the guitar. weighs in about 8 lbs and has a killer tone; action is pretty low. Only thing left is I have to get the nut completely done.

Enjoy!

This is the CamelBack CB-II just completed. Sorry about the crappy photos as I have no time to get then professionally done and the light was not good at all. I have to get this to Hipshot in Interlaken, NY for them to take to NAMM to demo their hardware. It's 25.5" scale, and chambered body. The main body is crotch Cuban mahogany with cocobolo top. Pickups are Vintage Vibe custom winds by Pete Biltoft. I won't even get the opportunity to play it through an amp before I have to deliver it... Sounds stunning through a V-Amp2 through headphones though...

The neck isn't as dark looking as it looks in these photos...
