    Nice choice of wood! What is the scale length?

      It's a 34" scale. It was her choice to style it after a RD. The piece of African mahogany that the body came from was huge ~15" wide x 17 ft long.

      I'm an inlay rookie. This is my first try. The neck is almost done.

        It's coming along. The other guitar is one I'm building for myself. It'll have strat pickups.

          Wow, cool. I just discovered this area down at the bottom of the forum menu.

          My woodworking skills are so limited. my level is to take a flat plank and two cinder blocks...voila, shelf. So I enjoy watching others who have genuine skill.

            It sure does look good so far. I will be interested in seeing the final outcome! Mike.

              I think it's a neat idea. I'm always interested in what other's are working on.

              Thanks Enzo, I wish I had a fraction of your technical skills. Also, the hippie shelf that you described is a proven design.

              Thanks, It won't be too long now. She's anxious!

              I haven't had much time lately, but I did get the finish started. I'll do the fretwork next, and let this dry for a few days before I spray the topcoat. I'm debating whether or not to dye the fingerboard black. It'll be getting a P-Bass style pickup, and bridge.

                It's going together. I made a pickguard, and installed the pickup today.

                          Absolutely gorgeous. respect. I was going to suggest a musicmaster! (shorter scale) as I thought yu were after suggestions.. but as a wood-dude myself: that is special.
