Hey now, I'm just an old man struggling through computer land!! :D

I went back and edited them but it looks like Brian beat me to the punch. Thanks, Brian!

Sorry about the retinal damage! B)

Sorry Bro my dialup couldn't handle it so I reduced them and added links to the originals :D

Hmm... the pictures, even though they are "smaller" screen size wise, now load much slower for me (I'm on cable modem.) The projectguitar.com pipe is feeding me about 8KB/s vs. about 76KB/s from the centurytel.net pipe.

I guess I may as well post what pics I have. I may not have the guitar any more but I'm still its creator. I hope the SOB who stole it from me gets diagnosed with AIDS and cancer all in one day. Sorry, I'm still waiting for the effects to wear off, will take a while yet. heres my entry. The guitar was a real player. I intentionally extended the fretboard out from the body so everything was fully accessible. As it was a neckthrough design I had no worries about cracking at the neck to body area like the old SG's. There was a little problem with balance as a result. But I fixed that by pouring a bit of lead into the control cavity and replaced the Grover full-size tuners with Grover minis after the pics were taken. Total weight was about the same as my '88 Strat, 8 lbs.
