New to the forum, not to never-ending-projects...
Hey, my name is Chris, and I do not consider myself a luthier, but I am very interested in the art.
This one was named toughguy on its first go round, mainly because of the paint and the "pick guard"... I was going for the relic-ed or road worn look, but I felt like I overdid it...
I used the passive pickups from my Warwick and a Schaller bridge, with Hipshot Ultralight tuners.
I was just unhappy/bored with it so I took it apart and the wheels start turnin.
Pics when I can...
Also, the new direction is:
slightly carved body
Bartolini pups and electronics.
A fret job
Custom paint job
Waterfall bubinga pickguard
