I've had some of the parts for this build for a long time.  This is the first Floyd equipped guitar I've ever done.  It also has the most bling.  Finally got the build started this weekend.  Still needs a setup and drill for the pickup mounting rings.  I wanted to make sure they lined up as good as possible before drilling.

Nice!

Can you give us a pic from the back of the white Korina neck?
How does the Korina Mahogany combo sound like?

Wow!  :eek:  Love that Koa!  A shame you had to ruin it with that ugly hunk of metal though....

Fernando should flip when he sees this.

Eric, it looks fantastic.

I like the control knob placements...........pure ergonomics on a Floyd Rose equiped guitar.

That's stunning. One of the nicest I've seen, despite the Floyd and the gold hardware, which actually work here. Fantastic.

Here's the back.

I really like the mahogany/white korina/Brazilian rosewood combo.  It mellows out the overwound pickups a bit and seems to have a bit more bite than a mahogany/mahogany combo might have.
