  1. Back after a few months' absence, I have been working on various large projects, including guitar repairs and a number of forthcoming commissions. At the moment, I have one priority build in progress that I picked up a couple of weeks ago after a break from, which is a standard Superstrat carve-top. I have decided to add an element of curiosity and surprise to my future threads, so don't expect to see the full picture until the guitar is finished. So, to start us off, here's a run down of what we have achieved so far with build #SG1013... The body is a two-piece Ash with 17mm thick Flame Maple top: The neck is one-piece reclaimed Indian Rosewood with Ebony fretboard and Flame Maple headstock face: Custom inlays are a copy of the PRS 513 birds, recesses routed with a 0.8mm Dremel bit: Paua Abalone inlays glued in and cleaned up: Work has started on the body's carve-top - rough contours routed in steps, ready for hand carving. The full carve depth is 9mm, with 8mm depth left in the Flame Maple for faux-binding: This build will continue shortly with more photos - watch this space!
