    It's finally finished! I need to order better strap buttons because I didn't like the length/width of the screws (the body is chambered).
    Anyhow, here it is. Even my GF said it was pretty and she has no interest in guitars haha.









    This probably the nicest build I've put together. Warmth makes some good stuff. I'm getting solid resonance from the headstock to the bottom end of the guitar.

    Things have slowed down a bit and with the long weekend I decided to put a little more work into the Telecaster. After much contemplation I'm finishing the body in Nitrocellulose Butterscotch Blonde.

    What's the skull made of? I dig it, it reminds me of the Mexican Day of The Dead Art I love.

    Does building from a kit count? I'm new, so I need to figure out the rules

    Just got this Reid and Son kit from eBay for $51, after shipping and exchange to Cdn, it cost me $91 CAD to my door.
    Still deciding what pickups to put in (see my thread in Pickups...(Newbie)-Confused-by-an-abundance-of-options-advice-please

    Also, not really a build, but I'm doing some custom paint on a Dean Dave Mustaine signature V, and a BC Rich Virgin. Someone please let me know if its appropriate to post pics of just custom paint in this thread.

    Nothing wrong with doing a kit. I did one for a old friend of mine and its a fantastic guitar.

    I'm actually doing a bass kit, and need some advice on drilling the holes for the bridge.

    How do yall suggest I precide?

    I'm guessing I take a measuring device and measure out the scale length from the nut (with the Neck on of course) and use that as a rough place to put the center of the adjustments of the bridge.

    Thoughts?

    The kit is GFS P-Bass (paulownia body and maple neck) that will be a solid black or grayburst color body, Tru oil or poly neck finish, poly body finish, all stock components except a black or black tortoise shell pickguard.

    This link might help, just enter your scale length and # of frets and instrument type

    Bridge placement for 34.000" scale length
    Distance indicated is from the fingerboard face of the nut, to center of rear-most row of mounting screws.

    Don't know if this counts as a build or not, but I just finished a paint job on a Dean Dave Mustaine Signature V.
    Paint is all House of Kolors...
    KK-11 Kandy Red over BC-02 Silver, (The red looks much deeper and darker in person, the lighting is off in these pics)
    S2-25 Black, (looks dusty in the photos, but thats a gold metallic I added to the paint)
    and BC-01-4 Solar Gold.

    All topped with USC-01 Show Klear (5 coats)

    Now just to assemble it.
    Stock pickups (DMT Design)
    Basswood body
    Bolt on maple neck with rosewood fingerboard

    I'd like to swap out the pickups, but I don't know if its worth it or not. This guitar will likely end up in the Trading Post section or on eBay very soon.

    I'd like some thoughts and opinions....

    I call this one my Ping-RS lol.

    Not really a build, but thought it came out alright. I picked this fake up just to fulfill a santana gas phase I had going. Replaced everything but the wood. Plays okay, sounds like nothing particularly special, but it works lol. It's in drop d and I'm slamming a good amount of gain into it from an ISP Theta. Gets the job done. I forgot how much of a pain a floyd can be haha.

    After:
