    you're one of the first builders where I've a.) liked your headstock design personally b.) it's not looked wrong on the models you're making, really nice job. Envious of the capability.

    Thanks so much for the nice compliments, it's a difficult balance, one thing I've realised is I can't use an f style body with a 3 a side headstock
    Oh you can. I personally love that look.

    You're in a minority so unless it's a custom order I won't do that again

    Was it just the look, or do you think it detrimentally affected tone/playability in some way?

    Personally I thought it sounded better than a strat, more musical but it was a set neck in all limba

    There's a great guitar in there somewhere but I'll change the body shape to my coronet style which I'm calling the riff raff model

    Doing an aged blonde tele and sonic blue strat
    These are just for me and to take to shows as examples of my ageing, I've included tan lines and patchy clear coating etc, checking is looking good on the strat now
    Long way to go with the blonde but it's looking good now
    This ageing is based on an original 59 esquire and 61 strat I looked at recently

    Chris Bucks red 62:strat along side my sonic blue one, not alot in it but mine plays much better with a 7.25 to 9.5 compound radius
    Just need some mojo pickups, I'm really impressed with this guitar, I also did a neck just like my 58 dc basket case, it's perfect

    My venture into offsets has begun, been meaning to get this done for a while, weighs 5.6lb now, it's having mojo pickups, staytrem bridge and arm with an aged shell pink nitro finish with matching headstock
    I big mineral streak popped up during the neck carve but I like them and will still look good

    Wow.

    Out of interest what would one of your compound 7.25-9.5" radius necks cost? Assuming you sell them seperately?
    My Trade Feedback Thread is here

    Been uploading old tracks I recorded ages ago and hopefully some new noodles here.

    Hi sorry I'm only doing full builds at the moment, if and when some shows start again I'll be going so people can try them out

    How's the jazzmaster turning out Dan? A mineral streak is sign of a strong tree I bet that neck is a player!
