Reckon I should pop this Cross logo on, or is it too much?

Man, that's looking great! Definitely go with the Cross logo on it. I like the way it balances the busy-ness on the other side of the strings.

That's awesome. And definitely put the Cross logo on! Such a cool touch and really does balance out the looks of the overall design.

You really make beautiful guitars. I'd love to see one of those with a Jazzmaster trem on it.

Cheers!
The next one I build will have one.

Hell yes! Image

I've always liked black with a black PG but this is a whole new dimension of beauty.

Holy hell, that's beautiful.

Where did you get the base plate for the tremolo from?

Oh wow! Using separate pickguard segments instead of the chrome gives that Marauder a total Burns Cobra/Bison vibe. I could totally see some Creamery Sonic 60's on that.

You do such beautiful work - both in design and execution. Very, very well done, sir.

Thank you so much. It's very appreciated!

Here it is with the neck.
I finished fretting it today and have shaved most of the back shape.
