    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
