Hoo-wee! What a display!

Is there another thread anywhere on Mirovox’s 12-string Jazzmaster?

Not to my knowledge. I am fairly certain I would have noticed it if there was.

Is it me or does that F-hole work so perfectly with the Jazzmaster body/pickguard??

I usually don't care much for the single f-hole thing, bit it so totally works on that style body/pickguard.
What I love so much about this site is seeing the ideas that I just never would have considered.

It was the last set of curly maple buttons I had at the time (replenished since). I made sure to put them to good use while I still had enough leftovers from the various dye mixes used for staining the top.

Here is the completed build's thread:
  https://www.unofficialwarmoth.com/index.php?topic=32228.0
It has more pics and it also has a link to the Work In Progress thread. If I recall correctly I posted a time-lapse staining the top in that WIP thread.

I meant to submit this earlier but always managed to see those GOM threads after the deadlines had passed.
