Did you just sell this with a Coral finish? If so, I bought it. And I fucking love it. If not, I bought one and... same thing.

Fuzz Pedal I'm Designing and Working on Right Now - I'm getting close to done, just so you know, 99.9% of the controls on this thing save for most of the switches are being emulated by just moving wires around XD. This is a photo in an earlier stage of breadboarding. I've already got the PCB and Components figured out, just need to build it out.

Got the bridge and strings on my latest project this evening and started dialing it in a bit:

Had to find a set of Fender American Standard bridge post bushings and Dremel 1/8" or so off of the lip for the trem block cavity but it's playing really nice, resonates very well, and sounds pretty good acoustic so far.

I'm working on a cross between a Marauder and a Tele. Here's the concept mockup:

Right now it's at this stage:

Kevin at Faction has been great to work with so I have the routing patterns to work from. I still have a few things to do to it yet. ;D

Thanks. It was a bunch of head scratching initially but now it can move forward. This is my first shot at routing a body. I have all the parts to go on it as soon as I have a finished body. Looking forward to this one.

Thanks. It's a body shape that allows all the things I like in my other guitars and eliminates what I don't.

Where does one find the holder for the thickness gauges? Would really speed up nut slotting and reduce the chance of going to far in the stage where you're just tryna get close to the line.

My Sharp 5 has jumped the queue and is getting the full fret business.
It's taken a lot of levelling for it to be ok, but I'm happy with how it's going. Really lovely bit of wood, looks like Macassar Ebony. :-*
