Looks great! Where did you get the blank from? Would stick with the Black White? Is that 3 or 5 ply?

That's a tough one because Epiphones have been made in countless different factories over the years, so there's bound to be some variation. Your only sure bet is sending the original guard to have it traced and reproduced.

Yep just ordered a blank and since I build custom cabs I will just make a pattern template and use a flush trim bit and a 45 Degree Chamfer Router Bit for the edges. Should be pretty easy.

Ill post pics when finished!

Forget it. Just order a custom one or you'll be doing more searching, buying and failing than playing guitar...
