Curious, you have a tune-o-matic so does that mean the neck has a slight pitch- angle with the body?

I've seen guitar with straight necks, e.g. Carvin but the tune-o-matic is recessed in the body.


Look at the full body shot, you can see the pitch. Especially in how the binding rises away from the top.


Yep, it's a 2.5 degree tenon.
Do'h I guess I'm not so observant - lol. I keep visiting to post just to see that stunning gold finish, hardware guitar build. Its just so beautiful. Razz

Thank ya. It was the first time I did a pickguard, and I can't believe I didn't scratch the mirror part off the back while I was cutting it, routing it, wiring it and securing it.

I tell you I'm in love with those Lollar pickups. The Phat cats I've got in other guitars are pretty good, but these Lollars are fantastic. Unless, of course it's due to these being in a walnut guitar. It just sounds so great. I'm going to put Lollars in my next mahogany build and see if I get the same result.
