Well, here goes nothing! I have until early May to finish this, so I'll be moving rather quickly, but I've tried to do my research in advance. Still, tips are much appreciated. I'm starting with a partially routed blank from Warmoth; it has the neck pocket, neck PUP and control cavity (although that will be altered). Appointments will be standard Gibson-style fare; two GFS Pro Series Alnico V humbuckers (7.6K), aluminum Nashville style bridge, Kluson green key tuners, all Nickel hardware, witch hat knobs and a transparent Walnut finish that will be satin on the neck. Here's the design: So far I've just started working on the body template: And modifying the existing control cavity to get the controls where I want them: Yes, the cavity will not be symmetrical, but I'm not concerned about it; it's on the back, who cares?
