Lookback-build pics, #73

Recommended Posts

I was cleaning up my email and moving stuff over to imgur and I decided that these might be of interest. 

I was asked not to post these during the build, but it should be safe now.😃

The top

Fingerboard and binding-the neck was bound with the outer layer of the two piece checkerboard binding

Mike's impeccable binding work (find the seam)

Coming together (this came on my birthday)

At this point Mike decided that the binding looked a little too white. He told me they were going to "do something with the binding". That was the last I saw of the guitar before it arrived, other than this teaser Trish sent the night before it shipped...

That binding is inspired.

Oddly enough, I bought a stash of that binding from Winfield a while back, and the day it arrived, I saw the first pic of yours with the stuff!  

I've got it on a Telecaster, and really love the way it looks.  Nobody does it like Mike, that's for sure...

Really cool! This is my ultimate shape of an electric guitar. Great to see Mike keeps building them.

ETA: Forgot about to saying congratulations!

Josh-

The pickups in it kill me right back. The PAF sound I have chased for decades. Just amazing how sensitive they are both to playing technique and small control tweaks. 

Looking forward to another guitar equipped with your fantastic pickups.
