    Thanks David!

    I used ash and African mahogany for the body. It feels and plays awesome. Like I play a Prestige guitar. Only thing that I don't like is the EMG 81/85 pickups.

    I drilled an extra hole to lead the oil to dove tail. But I'm not so sure if it was a good idea. What do you think?https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210507/04df6170431505391eb90b5cc2b0e489.jpg

    Hi,
