Well, its the finish has been completed. The basic wiring is done and ready to drop in once the guitar is buffed. All that's left to do is let the lacquer cure for a couple weeks and then sand, buff, and assemble.

With all that went on last year, this project has taken what seems like forever. I'm pretty happy with the way its shaping up.

Stay tuned,
Walter

Well it took a while but I finally got this one done. Overall I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. It looks great, its well balanced with great tone, and the neck is slick and fast. Ive got a few ideas for the next one but I need to make a trip to the lumber yard to find some good wood. Thats a story for another thread.

Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment. There are a few taken indoors and a few outdoors. The color really changes with differing light.

Heres a shot of the knobs. They are the new style PRS knobs in gold and black.

Schaller Davinci Tuners. This is my first time using them. I like them, they are smooth and seem to hold in tune well. They were kind of a pain to install but worth it.

Its been a long haul with lots of personal obstacles in 2018. It's been a good year so far and I'm happy to have this one in the books!

Hope you all enjoyed it!

Thanks a bunch. It's been few days now and Ive had a chance to play it a good bit. I'll give it a going over this weekend and fine tune the set up. That should give the guitar a little time under the stress of the strings to move if its going to. So far its holding very nicely. The action is really low...Think les paul low. I may need to raise it a wee bit. We'll see how it goes.

I appreciate the feedback!

They are Wilde L500L in the bridge and L500R in the neck. They are made by Wilde Pickups which is the company that Bill Lawrence and his wife Becky started after he left Bill Lawrence USA. It is an improved version of the old L500 he used to make years ago. Bill passed away a couple years ago but his wife Becky and daughter Shannon are still making pickups. You can find them on the web. I have yet to try any of their stuff that I didn't like.
