Been a long time since I have been on here. Moved and had another baby so guitar time is limited at best.

I built this guitar to resetup shop. Took about six weeks in all. I documented the whole process on youtube.

Take a look here for the vids: http://www.youtube.com/user/thebigdguitars?feature=mhsn

This is a Les Paul Style Guitar with a 5A Flame Maple top and a two piece african Mahogany Neck and 1 Piece Back. Ebony Fretboard with block inlays and PRS Pickups and of course one of my varitone switches. The Guitar is finished in Tru-Oil about 6 coats in all. I wetsanded with Linseed oil after the 3rd coat and then added thin layers after that. I was going to buff and add some wax but its got a nice sheen already so I am going to leave it. I couldn't do Nitro here... Its winter in Chicago and I don't have the time to do it right.

This has the black binding and a little bit of Faux flame maple binding since this was a thicker top I could do the effect.

Everything was built from scratch except for the inlays I had those laying around the shop.

Here are the pics:

MorningStar "Italico"

Drawing its inspiration to some extent from Gretsch, but even more from various obscure Italian guitars from the late 60s and early 70s (hence the name), this MorningStar received a great looking green metallic/flake finish with Art Deco attribute in the shape of DeArmond inspired pickups, custom made pick guard and matching hardware. The neck from flame maple was laminated with graphite reinforcement and the body was made from light weight alder. All in all it is a light, resonant guitar that, with its SuperSonic pickups have a clear yet warm sound that really cuts through. A guitar that neither looks, nor sounds like anything else.

Fretboard Ebony
