I didn't realize the type of the tuners until now. They really add a twist to the design! Is there any gear or are they just like violin tuners, doing exactly what your fingers tell them to?

So I decided to make a black 3-ply pickguard. I screwed it on and got the first notes!!! Love the tone! It s got girth and pop, definition and ooomph. Suits my style perfectly. Wei

Ok, so this summer is a little difficult as you all know, and I had a lot of things to do in my medical practice plus a new project that is on its way.   Anyways, I came up with a Silver Oni

Today I shaped the bone nut and cut the grooves with the nut slotting jig I from Halon GMI in Greece. You can make a precise nut in a jiffy!!    I prepared the slot with the slot shapi

Love them so far! Very sleek and accurate/ sensitive.

No gears, they just screw down and they stay put. 
 

Very intuitive design. 
 

...and now I got a spare gold set....

gotta think carefully, if I am going to start a new project!

Headless! You could install those tuners in the body behind a tune-o-matic.

Ok, so this summer is a little difficult as you all know, and I had a lot of things to do in my medical practice plus a new project that is on its way.

 

Anyways, I came up with a Silver Onion guitars logo. That is my Greek name and surname translated to English - roughly.

 

So I dug with the dremel diamond straight bit and sprayed some silver nitro on the grooves.

 

That gave me the finished result of this guitar!

That looks superb @argytar   The whole project concept - single piece of wood - is inspired and the result is impressive.

Thank you so much! I appreciate it!

I am making a small video to showcase the tones I can get from this fun axe!
