  1. I completed this guitar late last fall. I've been building on and off for 10 years when I get the time. I built two almost identical at the same time but with different stains. One I sold to a client and one I kept for my office as a "test drive" so prospective clients can get a feel for what I build before commiting to a custom. Build thread is Here. Specifications: Name: Claymore Body: Honduran mahogany (maple veneer) with grain matched cavity covers. Water based lacquer finish. Neck: Paduak (maple veneers) with flame Maple binding and luminlay side dots. Tru oil finish. 25.5" scale length. Fretboard: Ziricote with MOP logo at 12th fret. Headstock: matching maple with Wenge and paduak accents. MOP inlay. Frets: Jumbo stainless with hemispherical ends. Hardware: Evertune bridge, Hipshot locking tuners, Graphtech nut. Electronics: Bareknuckle Holy Diver set with camo finish. Push push volume for coil splitting.

  2. Happy to share!! I like Dan’s vids very much! I did the neck profile. .89" inch at the first fret 1.1” at the 12th" I like the way hot hide glue holds the fretboard in place. Seems to tap nicely!! Very vibrant! Time to glue the neck to the body!

  3. They need to be sanded down a bit, but pickup rings or no? Thoughts? I'm about 50/50. The original plan was to go without, but now I'm not so sure. The walnut kind of ties things together. I'll also likely either do walnut or wenge knobs.

  4. Update. The SG is basically my daily driver. I play it or the S9 express or El Mariachi. I might be building a couple later this year. Kid goes to college in Aug and I might have some free time. Have a lot of wood that should become something other than a slab....

  5. Pickup routes... Had to elevate the router over the neck to do the neck pickup route, so a little half inch plywood and plenty of double sided tape and away we go. Couldn't help myself and threw in the pickups for a quick look. They're not at all in position, but you get the drift. It's all coming together! I've been researching whether to drill the holes for the bridge posts even or staggered. Due to the adjustability of this bridge I'm leaning toward even at the moment.

  7. So, to cut to the chase, I decided on the yellow-ish one in the middle. The figuring on that is completely different than mine, but so what, I LOVE the color scheme. Totally rocks my world, and I need that, it has to completely knock me off my chair. So, I notice that center section looks an awful lot like one I already did, my Rising Sun Tele. Notice the similarity of the center sections. So I've got that one piece of the puzzle covered, I know how to get 'there' at least that section. Just gotta cut out all the other cowboy sunset colors involving red and focus on the brown.
