@xld Thank you so much for the very kind words! I have huge respect for Japanese philosophy, craftmanship, enginering, production, processes and manufacturing, so this warms my heart!VanHeGen,
I sat in a coordinators seat in a mechanical engineering department at a Japanese company before retiring.
Your approach to your build, the planning and reasoning that went into the project previous the implementation is a fine example of how these things "can" be approached...probably how they "should" be approached.
You might say that you can "plan the joy right out of the project" but the mental exercise of creating the thing in the ether before it shows up on the physical plane can be a load of fun as well.
Once again, Excellent work!!!
Oh, wow. I am at loss for words!I have added Coffee as an entry in notable builds for the documentation of the design and thought process of the build.

@TonyFlyingSquirrel Thank you so much for the kind words! I always try to do the best I can but I honestlynever thought my first build would turn out this good - and not only in my own opinion!This has to go up there in the most tonal options in a single pickup guitar, and the story of its inspiration is priceless!
Mad props for the photography also, classy and tasty, up there with the style used in Geddy Lee‘s Big Beautiful Book of Bass.
