    Someday.....my guitar collection will be complete......
    Right now have
    -Customized Epi G400
    -Ibanez acoustic

    Hope to eventually have:
    -Taylor 514ce
    -Gibson SG standard, or 61RI
    -PRS Custom24
    -Fender Deluxe Strat (Blue, w/ Tortoise shell pg, and white electronics...sexy!)

    My collection will be complete at this point. I've played all of these guitars already....hence my choices. Someday......*sigh........lets hope I win that new Gibson contest......get one off my list...

    Skids, you ought to build that as a right hand guitar, on a left hand body (with right hand controls)

    That is a nice body Pepol but if you check out the dimensions, the body thickness is 1 3/4" as opposed to Gibson's 1 5/16" It does make a difference. Would be heavier than a Gibson SG also !

    skids do you like 63-67 Sting Ray and 1968-19?? Stingray corvettes

    i figured you might because the body styles look very sharklike to me and the prototype was called the Makoshark

    You could take that Warmoth body, route it for a straight mortice and drop in a set neck with a little work. Too bad the body is not the correct thickness, I guess you could always drum sand the back down and re contour it!

    Just realized my guitar list/goal has been revised. Scrap the Epi, add the SG Standard. :)
