Here we go again! I finished two right before year's end, so this is almost a clean slate. I'm going to start the new year off with this one. Maple top, Mahogany body, Sapele neck, Cumara fingerboard. Hardware will include Grover Roto's, and an adjustable wrap tail bridge. The electronics will be P-90's with cream covers with master T/V. The binding, and dots will be cream with gold speed knobs. It's a 24 5/8th's scale. I'll fret it with medium wire. I started on the neck, and glued the blanks in December, but the rest of this one will be on a pretty fast pace. Yesterday I cleaned up the blanks with a scraper, and got the ball rolling. I'm always slow to make the first cut. Asking myself if it's really the design that I want to build. I'd been fussing over the design on this one more than usual. After going back and forth for days, I committed to this. It's a slight revision of a shape that I've built before. Gotta have a clamp photo!
