    Almost finished, Mahogany and Spruce semi-hollow Tele with an Allparts Maple and Rosewood neck. Pickups are made by Gemini, a maker in NY. First time using a Goldfoil pickup—absolutley love it!

    silver-soldered some more brass on the backside, was able to drill/tap some 6/32 screws for adjustment. Cleaned up, and dialed in.

    Looks great - nice work.

    So what does each control do? And what combinations does the pickup selector switch yield?

    I don't have a scale available, they both feel near equal. I have around 1/16" less material around the stud mount ends with the one on the right. I wasnt really able to drill/tap for adjustment screws. I was thinking the saddles would take up enough when setting intonation. But it now turns out I have more work to do on that. The one on the left looks better and ought to work well. I'm using this one for the sunburst sg.

    Made two bridges out of a chunk of 4" brass stock we have on hand. I cut the slice out back in November, been milling on the two half's off and on since then.

    One I made the saddles out of three key blanks, the other I salvaged from a spare TOM..

    Decided to grow a pair and make the outer burst using a propane torch. Some stain and flat black spray paint afterward.

    Second attempt ever at a sunburst finish, i'm pretty satisfied with this one.

    Got some routing done. Thinking about a tobacco sunburst for this one.

    Flying v finally finished. At about 30% of the cost of the scott ian king v. And some other differences such as the 'double rhodes' shape being broader/longer than the king v (but not by a whole lot) built with my favorite tonewood combo. I wasn't too crazy about the huge block inlays, bound with dots is my favorite look. both guitars are 24.75 scale. Which kind of surprised me that Jackson would make any guitars in Gibson scale..
