Ok, I had posted some pics in the General Guitar building area...but I think many of you Electric guitar nuts would appreaciate this one too. So here is my second attempt at a build. I am in the process of setting the neck on this one. Its just sitting in the dovetail joint. I also need to binding the body before glueing the neck on.

Looking good, Joe. Too much coffee before that second shot?

What are you using for Pick ups?

Actually...no caffene before I took the pic. Caffene usually steadys my hand. Sorry for the bad Cell phone pics. My teenage daughters have my good camera.

Pups? I don't really know. I was kind of waiting to see how this one turned out. If its a piece of crap when finished, it will get some matching pickups and be sold to cover the material. If it turns out halfway decent, I will probably load it with some PAF' type pups. Maybe SethLovers or Antiquities or simular. I actually have a set of 63/64 PAT number pups that are basically short magnet PAF's. But the covers are long gone. I suppose I could just by new chrome covers for them. It would sound very simular to the ES175. Still would like to try that 59/60 model.....

Thanks!
