    You're making this sound like a far more sensible idea than I expected haha!

    Any recommendations for where to find neckthrough blanks?

    No idea at all, I've never built from scratch before so I'll need to do some homework.
    It would be rude not to make it neckthrough though so I'll have my work cut out for me! Maybe maple neckthrough with mahogany wings and some (3no.) mini-humbuckers?

    Having another one here to use as a template should make it fairly manageable though for the body end of things so I suppose the tricky bit will be the neck!

    A Mastery bridge would be supreme craic also...

    Honestly I've been so shocked by how great it feels on a strap. It's a blast to play and I haven't even got it wired up yet!

    I'm very tempted to build one from scratch as my first proper build, I reckon it could look great with a massive haircut headstock kind of like a Hagstrom one maybe?

    Something along this style perhaps?

    Holy smokes, I just looked them up and it makes Collings look like a poor mans entry level instrument!

    What a wonderful thing to have though, I'd love to hear some clips of it if you get a chance as I'm sure it sounds heavenly!

    I sort of did 😅 I got the two Ludwigs from the same seller for €400 all in incl. postage from USA. I reckon after they get the restoration treatment they should be worth €400+ each (if I can bring myself to sell them...)

    Assembled and strung this up. It's a blast, I'm actually considering buying a proper Dean ML I like it so much!

    Would quite like an Elliot Easton-esque blue burst one...

    Good tips there!

    I haven't actually gotten around to servicing the shocks yet but it's on the to do list!

    I'm sort of harbouring a notion of upgrading the carb with a proper Yoshimura one and getting an actual Yoshimura end can and redoing the exhaust to suit at some stage which will probably cost about €1,000 in parts which is a bit silly but sounds like an awful lot of fun so I'll suffer the noisy boy for a little while I reckon!

    I'm almost certain I have bought some of those very indicators! Size wise they're great little things but I might get some of that orange tint spray and give them a coat... I've never liked clear lenses on anything :)
