    Anybody want to chime in with a pickup suggestion? I'm leaning towards either some Dynasonics or Duncan Antiquity dogears.

      Any opinions?






      Truss rod cover could make it to the Guinness World Record book for size.



      Compare to similar Gibson...

      • I actually modeled this on a Gibson Marauder.







        Hope they don't sue me.

        But it's not an exact copy anyway.





        I decided on a body shape and started on it.

        • And a revised truss rod cover. It'll have three screws, too. Dead giveaway for a fake.

          • And lastly tonight, pick one of these to bookmatch.



            A.







            B.







            C.





            D.

            • EG why don't you just do a veneer on the headstock? Then you could make the opening shorter and do a more standard truss rod cover.



              Also I vote D.

              • There we go. I like that. Maybe some smaller screws.

                  • This is my favorite shot so far.





                    Doing some alignment checks with my Bo Diddley body. Fretboard looks good, alignment up the neck, the bridge and tailpiece look good so far. The nut needs shimmed a little.

                      I"m pro-life when it comes to guitars.




                      Not me. Ive played some guitars that should have been aborted.



                      This build is looking great tho.

                        • Moving from the neck to the body feels like a milestone.

                          Testing my first joint. Almost there.

                            I think you are a few billion years off, but heh.
