It is complete.

Maghony/Quilt Maple carved top VW with Contour heel
Wilkenson V100 trem
Wenge/Jet Black Ebony conversion scale neck with side dots only
6105 SS frets
Standard thin contour
Schaller locking tuners
500K pots wired with 2 volume/1 tone with 3 way switch
BareKnuckle Riff Raff calabrated pickup set

Still need to perform final set up, but it plays pretty good as is.  Has a really balanced tone between bridge and neck pickups,  Neck pickup has a really smooth fluid tone when played clean.  Bridge has a classic PAF tone with really good harmonics.

Love the feel of the Wenge neck!

That's really awesome, man... I love all of the color combos and everything... the whole guitar is beautiful. The red and black is killer with that binding.

Doc,

I made a truss rod cover for it as well and I didn't like that.  The trem cover kind of grew on me though.  I like the contrast.

That is just smooooooookin' hot Bill, I must say I never really liked the carved top VW's. But that one is marvelous, the top on it is crazy badass... :headbang1:

Black wilky looks awesome with that finish! I agree about the trem cover, but other than that it looks perfect.

Got the guitar back from the shop today after final set up (my goal is to start doing FS myself on next build) OMG what a nice playing/sounding guitar!  It is almost a perfect blend between..

My LP for feel and playability...

and my tele for tone...

I couldn't put it down for at least 2 hours.  I can't say enough good things about the BKP Riff Raff set.  Absolutely great sound.  My first thought is classic PAF tone with a bite.  Capable of great harmonics.

Love the Wenge neck.  The Wilky seems to stay in tune very well.

Warmoth is a love hate relation ship...

I love Warmoth...  The wife hates Warmoth... :toothy10:

Deffinetly my new number 1!

Just wanted to put a quick clip up to see if it works... :dontknow:

Please forgive the poor quality and crappy playing.

This was recorded using the bridge pickup, played through a Crate MX65R Gain 1 channel and my laptop builtin mic.

I thought it sounded pretty amazing for using a built-in laptop mic to record it.  And nothing wrong with your playing at all...  beats mine  :laughing7:  :icon_thumright:
