    Default I cooked up this flying v Grenado today

    Yeah that's right deal with it :laughing.

    There was no plan on this just a idea then go!



    I'm still thinking up more ideas for it but that's enough for today,

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    Whats your thoughts on blood dripping from the grenades?

    I did some more work on this today. electronics cavity routed, neck heel, cavity holes, sides, back and just playing around with some layers of stain. Not exactly sure what i want yet but it's coming together okay i think.

    I wouldn't do blood on the grenades. If you want to add some color to them how about a "radioactive" or "biohazard" symbol?

    No, I'd leave the blood out and any other trite messages.

    I'm not into "V"s but the concept and its execution are especially cool. I always love seeing your innovative stuff. Well done so far. Love the control cavity cover...screws or magnets?

    I feel like this would be a bit too much work at this stage. But thanks for the ideas i may use them with future builds. I might try and sell this one (not for profit lol) but just so i can progress onto another one.

    I'm really loving the color! The subtle variations.

    Awesome dude!

    The "cracks"...did you do that with a router? Dremel? By hand?

    I used the router freestyle and that 5mm amana router bit. I used dremel on the previous ones and i think it's a better choice.

    I think this looks pretty awesome. Why do you feel the Dremel was a better choice?

    Bit more control and finer cut. Also using the router along the edges is a bit scary at times.

    Well, I gotta tell you, I think it looks great!

    So, put it together and play it. I'm anxious to hear if it sound as explosive as it looks.

    I think it would sell in an instant. There are many players who would LOVE to own that.
