  • Very nice. Now I've got a nice giggable amp I definitely see a partcaster in my future.

    Are they mother of pearl inlays? And which tuners did you go for?

    My next guitar purchase will probably be fully hollow electric of some description tho. Would love an ES330 but given budget considerations a Casino is more likely. Must have bigsby.

  • The inlays are abalone. Almost all the hardware is Gotoh, finished in nickel as I prefer the look to chrome. The pickguard is bakelite which I'm not that impressed with tbh. Needed some dremelling to get it to fit and it has a very sharp, square edge. Think I'm going to have to radius it as the feel is irksome.

    Finishing the neck with tru oil, rather than nitro took ages but was worth it - a month on, it feels completely silky, should be really nice to play.

    I'd like a hollow body too....maybe an Eastman. Though I reckon an amp has to be the next project....
