Nice! I think I see what my next build idea could include (if these first two work out!).

I dig that hole chambered body, f-hole design/look.

VERY nice! You've given me a touch of GAS the day after my own VIP arrived!! Curses!

Of course, now you've got to answer the question: If you can do F-holes on a VIP, why don't you make a 335-shaped model?

Nice.  You have my attention.  I see a project for myself here...  I'm wondering out loud "how much these gonna cost?"...

Gonna roll these out?   Info info more info!

That would make the Trey Anastaio fans among us part with our money.  Like me...  I wanna part with my money over one of those in mahogany...  Dude...

Yeah I'm with mayfly, suddenly I'm interested in this body type.  Now if you can put an f-hole on an LP you're really in business..

Glad you like 'em!

Just need to make sure these make it through paint ok without the f-hole getting snagged on the buffing wheel.  I don't think this will be a problem, though.

Point of interest - you can't see it in the pictures, but these bodies still have tummy contours.  The bottom of the bass-side chamber is 3D carved to match the contour, so you don't give up any comfort to get the f-holes.

This is a very interesting thing! Congrats, that's awesome!
