As these first few CO builds have started to take shape it kind of struck me just how different each one really is.  It's cool how slight tweaks can take the build in such  a different direction.

P90 in the neck and HB in the bridge?  I'm getting weak in the knees.

one of the first ones with a bound headstock, it's going to look even cooler once I add the triangle accent.

I guess the triangle accent will have a bit of binding too?

Love Mike's single cut design.

I know, I know., you all think Mike is using all this to build your CO's.

The truth is, he uses a hammer & chisel, some wire cutters and a pocket knife.

Thats it.

All these fancy power tools are for show.

He must have went to the Burly School of Luthiery.

Man, this is like waiting for the roux to brown, lol. Actually, these pics are kind of like that moment when the trinity hits the roux and the whole kitchen smells great but you know you have several more hours yet.

Not to go off on a tangent, but I've often wondered why all my guitar buddies love to cook.  It must be something on the "creative" side of the brain.  One actually went to the CIA and worked for Emeril in Orlando.

Not me.  I mean, I can cook...some things...and they're almost palatable, but I'm much better at eating (and custom-ordering and customizing guitars) than I am at cooking.

I love to cook. A love that grew out of necessity. My Mom could burn water.

They look just like Hamer copies of PRS, made by skilled Gibson craftsman located in Indonesia.     🤗
