The trimmed pickguard is better proportioned and the design makes the overall look better balanced.

That's the color pretty much. I don't like the tortious shell though. Copper might be cool.

Bruce, just the angle and that blue is the complimentary color to orange, so it makes it look more orange when it's next to it.

Planning stages of the next guitar. I joined 2 more pieces of the poplar I used for LC001, but when I planed them flat, I was left with a pretty thin body blank. 1.56" or so. I need 1.75 finished to fit the cavities and controls for the S type body. So i ordered a top to glue on to the poplar. It's Birdseye Maple.

I'm not going to fuck with the flame shaped head on this one... probably. I have Birdseye maple fingerboards to go with this top, so it might look cool. Thinking of doing a Strat type body, but with Telecaster pickups..... I'm not quite sure yet.

OooOOOooohhh... I gotta tell you, I have very little appreciation for all the technicalities of construction going on in here--but Bird's Eye Maple is gorgeous.

this is roasted hard maple. I love it. I'm gonna get 2 necks out of this board if I can. If i can't I'm going to make something else cool.

This is a wood porn site if ever there was one. scroll up top and browse the different woods he has. OMG... I'm going to have to show some restraint.

I may actually get my strat back today.

My heating the neck caused a couple other small issues, but we're correcting those. The finger board was lifted near the 12th fret bass side. Super glue and clamps for a while, then hopefully I can take it home.

I did take it home, and I gotta say, it plays better than it ever did. Ever. The action is wicked low and light, intonation is on point (he uses the 1st & 13th to set that, btw. I asked why and he said that occasionally you've got a nut in the wrong spot, but the octave is more reliably perfect from one fret to any other 12 steps away.)

So in all it cost me $400 total. I've got to let it adjust to having strings on again for 2 weeks and then take it back for a 'little kiss' on the 13th fret.

Happy
