Hello everybody!!!! been busy working on many guitar projects.

Here is one:



some of you might have seen it before we are working on a neck for it and building our own bridge for it etc...

But have decided to ask you people what do think I should do as for pickups,wiring schemes should it have a pickguard or not? and even scale length etc...

Your guys ideas and input would be greatly appreciated!! Very Happy
