Needed to have another guitar to gig with and avoid me having to tote the custom Chap around.

Our very own Stike finished this one.  Thank you kind sir!

Whatcha think?

Agree. I didn’t quite, “get”, the bronzed OFR finish until this build. It really compliments the guitar.

That looks sensational. Really upscale but also kind of steampunk at once. Howzit play?

I was gonna say "you can't just make something out of wood, leather, and bronze and call it steampunk!" ... but let's face it, that's basically their jam. 

If you could add some lenses or portholes to it, that would be great.  :D

What an interesting observation - never even considered that but it certainly makes sense.

It plays and sounds really well. I have some small tweaks to make to the action, and I have to learn how to use a tremolo responsibly lol.

I’m very curious how that gets along with the Floyd. I’d just had a similar thought for a project I’m getting together.

I'll need a bit more time with it to be certain but, so far so good.  I'm not dive bombing so I don't anticipate issues. We shall see though 😉
