With the vibrancy of that green I'd have been tempted to do the whole top. It fizzes colour

Thanks guys! Ive spent more time building in the past few weeks than i have all year combined.

I also have some things planned for the fall that will hopefully boost my building time.

So here is an update. I put in my 2 weeks at my current job, and will go back to full time building!

It was a hard decision, but i know it was the right one.
Here are a few celebratory pics!

Not my favourite shapes but beautiful woods and flawless workmanship. The fret ends are perfect!

I love the multi-coloured neck and how the scarf joint makes an X at the volute, and how the straight grain center piece tranquilises the vividness of the colours and flames. But I can't help that to me the headstock of it looks like a giant bottle opener! Suits the aggressive shape of the entire instrument, though. You have all the rights to be proud of your work.:thumb:

haha, thanks! I was going for a harpoon for the headstock, but that works too!
Here is a design i stole from the internet.

Also a re-sprayed Lizardburst SS. And a black  cherry ss.

Stunning stuff like usual Luis. You've set the bar so high, that something that was only pretty good would stick out like a sore thumb.  I'm particularly fond of the green burst, and the curly maple fretboard is a nice touch, but they all are killer.
