    I have to be honest. Watching this come together, I was thoroughly impressed with your dedication, creativity, and your ability to source and work with the different artisans involved to coordinate it all (SYO can probably attest, THAT's a major accomplishment). But I was seeing something, in total, that was going to be garish and way too over the top to be appealing as anything other than a curiosity.

    I was wrong.

    That came together well and it's a pretty bada$$ guitar. Still a lot of bling for my taste, but it works well, to my surprise. Congratulations. Looking forward to photos of the completed project that do it justice. And thanks for bringing us along on the journey.

    Silver hardware shipping today. Update from the luthier:

    "Well, it's that time. This thing in amazing. It plays so well it's crazy. Definitely one of my top builds for sure. Over the last several days, I've done some photographing the guitar for my website, adjusting action, pickup height, polishing spots, adjusting the neck, touching up frets general setup stuff and final adjustments. Tonight, I'll be adding the RFID chip as well as the truss rod and trem plates."

    The knobs are to be replaced (standard ones right now)... a custom whammy bar to be inserted... and the selector switch will be chrome (not white).

    Just when I think you've thought of everything, there's something else!

    That's a little 'trademark' touch by Sublime Pickups. You wouldn't believe some of the cool and strange pickups he has created... some really off-the-wall stuff!

    A picture of the back plate... hand engraved and chromed (the jack plate also will be chromed).

    Guitar received today. I must say that pictures don't do it justice, and particularly the quality of the metal flake paint. The feel of the fingerboard is the best I have experienced... perhaps that has to do with the ebony, but Steve Casper also makes the best necks I have played. Over the next few weeks I plan on recording some music and writing a detailed review, with photos.
