Oh such heresy! Inspired by Mapleglo's wonderful Fenderbacker, I wanted to build something even more heretical -- A 4001 shape with lipstick humbuckers, short scale, neck-through. The challlenges- my first multi-piece neck and a neck through. The neck will be 2 pieces of maple sandwiching a piece of walnut. The wings will be poplar covered with a mahogany veneer, with edge binding, a-la Brian May. I'll probably go with a lacquer finish.
