Kinda yes... it's Aries (the ram) from astrology. This is a "tribal" version.
That body is fantastic! Looks like the oceanControls, wiring, etc. is in…
Tuner pegs / machine heads installed….
She’s certainly looking more like a complete guitar.
Left to do:
Dress all fret ends and polish frets.
Finish nut and complete setup.
Add truss rod cover
Add strap buttons (Schaller locking)

End up agreeing on no dying (blue) of the headstock. May forego the Aries tribal logo too
I think so also for certain now we see it.
On the pickup being raised, I assume the proper height is more of an expectation of height rather than it would not work lower with the neck angle as designed?
I'll provide some close up pics (and comparison to my LP) to show you what I mean.
It could be. The biggest issue with that proposed solution (and yes - I considered it) is that the screws are already very long and it was neigh impossible to find one longer by another 6mm (1/4") or longer (and that would have still put them at their limit - I'd really want them another 10mm+ or about 1/2" preferably).
If the mounting and adjustment worked more like typical humbucker designs, it would have been somwhat easier to deal with. This issue really has more to do with the Filtertron pups and their peculiarities (at least in the "no ears" route)...
