This is my build for 2012. I called it The Owl and the Fox because of the little animals in the Cocobolo drop top.

Specs are:

Cocobolo bookmatched top on a African Padauk body. The body is based on a strat with a modified heel and carvings.

Padauk and Wenge laminated neck. 24 gold frets with a angled headstock. 18:1 ratio Grover gold tuners.

Schaller combination bridge.

EMG 81 & 85 gold pickups.

The build thread is in the work in progress section of this forum. http://projectguitar...showtopic=46271
