Looks cool! The color change on the headstock looks a bit weird from behind, but I definitily like the rest of that guitar (including the 7th string :D ) Too bad there seems to be no place to buy bloodwood within like 1000 miles from my home... it looks so great!

A neck pickup?! That's a bit out of character for you Matt :D

I can only tell that it's yours because it has 7 strings.

I love it!

Wes is right, it must be white, I have a thing for white guitars.

I don't know why but I like it quite a bit...I think it needs to be white...bone white.With crossbone inlays.

Yep. . . .and dip the bottom horn in red paint and let it drip and splatter down the body. You may have to sell this one to GWAR.

A part of me wants to paint it but at the same time I like the old school look that the walnut is puting out, its kind of a good mix. What do you guys think about the headstock, Im kinda iffy on it and I would like it to match the body a bit more but I also kinda think that once all the parts are on there that it will look good

I like the shape a lot. I like the vibe it is giving off with the natural tones, but I think Wes nailed it on the head with it painted white. With that shape and the color of the fretboard, I think white will really set it off.

That's lookin' awesome man. I really like how far you stretched the shape there.

So, that jack doesn't get in the way at all there? I was thinkin' of trying something like that, but I'm afraid that it'll be way in the way.

I'm thinking about using that jack design for my latest build. Just need to mock it up and find out where the cord won't poke me.

Was thinking about making my own plate like Perry did on the Vine and one of his DC's, but drilling into the body with a Forstner bit at a 60 degree angle and expecting everything to go peachy is absurd with my track record :D Not to mention having to build my own plate.

Looking good, Matt! The thing is just BIG all-around!
