Late to the party here-but that 4+2 layout is off the walls, I really like it. These are coming along nicely. That tall binding really means business

Lol, thankfully someone likes it! For me it's just a reminder of a bodge job. :D

Final hardware look, had to test for any surprises.

Binding scraped! Card scrapers really changed my life, I can't use a razor without scratching the top no matter how slowly I work. :D

Redid the stain on the back, had some pretty bad scratches on it. Installed the frets on the neck.

Top had some nice 3D figure on it now.

I should really do a deep dive into my Helix patches and tweak them with headphones for doing demos. I doubt that they'd sound the same recorded as they do on these desk monitors. My go-to's have ended up being the Friedman (H)BE and Revv Purple. My Rectumfryer patches just haven't set me alight yet. That might be one to spend time with.
