    haha! that would be a nice feat

    (to be honest... I have closed the orders until November 2020. I have a 20+ guitar back log, have to make models to fill up the up 'n coming website and I'm doing it all by myself. Adding more orders now would just push me back into ultra-stress-mode, and making guitars while feeling stressed is a sure-fire recipe for ****ty guitars).

    Hey, wait a minute. I thought you didn't like gold hardware.
    Cool, exactly what I was going for. I don't know but I kinda like the hybrid so far

    @Aceman: you know I can do almost every body shape. LP, strat, tele, this one...

    and I can't blame you!

    I am happy to learn that you feel this is original enough to be seen as original. What for me is of paramount importance is that there's a sense of continuity in my work. I try to change as little as possible to (my) basic designs, only refine. For example, the pinstriping in the neck, between headstock and headstock cap, fretboard and neck blank: I do that in all my guitars. it's so, so hard to really do something the same in every guitar because each guitar is really different. You'll also never ever see me use plastic backplates. I'd rather have my profit margin slashed by 50% and get wood than do plastics.

    Thanks guys. The only change I'll be making is a new switch cavity cover. The grain is now angled compared to the korina and it just looks off to me.

    OH and Yes, I know that there's no trussrod recess cover. I frankly don't like them anymore and I'm thinking of pivoting away from this design. I've done it this way since 2013 but I'm finding it a true nuisance for setup work. Instead of it being a 1 minute job with one tool (4mm hex key for the trussrod) I actually need a screwdriver as well, plus taking off the plate is always a pain. So I only make one when I sell the guitar.

    Just putting it out there so you guys understand/know I do see it but opted to not do it for reasons stated above
