Solid Ebony? Man that must have cost a bundle. Looks great though.

The body contouring is nicely different. I personally like to hide the jack, but that is purely aesthetics. I would like to see some pics from other angles. 3 months is a relatively short build for me, but then again, I don’t have tons of time to dedicate to builds (yet my wife would tell you that I somehow manage :) ). Looks like a very well executed guitar. How heavy is it being made of solid ceylon ebony? Is the fretboard the same wood? I love looking for new inspiration wherever I can find it, and this is not your normal kit guitar, so I think it is worth getting as much info as possible.

Indeed it is, Douglas. The red push-lock situated above the input jack creates a sin city effect.
