Wow! Somehow I have missed this thread. I had a guitar once that looked quite a bit like that one. :ph34r::P

Very nice.

ETA: Has anyone told you your dots are off center? lol.

I've got my chainsaw and sledge hammer ready... :-)

If it's all the same, as the customer, I'd like to request you finish carving it with a rusty butter knife and log splitter.

This is gonna be killer! Nice wood btw! :P

Do my eyes deceive me or is the body a tad thicker than the Hamer Californian?

It might be currently. Still needs to be carved and sanded.

Actually your eyes do decieve you. The body is exactly 1 3/4" thick which is the exact measurement I took off of one of Jims existing Cali's.

The reason it looks thicker is because I have yet to round over the edges, nor have I done the belly carve yet.

It doesnt seem that taking just the corner off can make such a difference in the "appearance" of thickness, but it does.

Really moving along now! Body and neck carves and some rounding on the body done. Some fine tuning of the neck carve and the body rounding and the cutaway bevels left then, hardware fitting and finishing!

This is really turining out to be a spectacular build!!!

I would give my left nut to have the skills to build a guitar like that.

EDIT...I'd give both nuts....im not using them anyway

Apologies for the ridiculous number of posts this week but these really need to be seen. Just need the cutaway bevels and then....
