This body is an Eden body in baseball bat ash (since it's quite heavy) that I had incorrectly drilled the neck pocket hole on, I found some dowel at an art store and filled it in. This will be a solid color finish since the grain on the wood isn't going to win any beauty contest, I haven't decided the color yet.



Did I mention I gave up on this project a year ago? was gonna give the thing away but shipping isn't worth it... Will probably find another Eden or mighty mite neck and make this one a budget guitar.



One of my friend also smuggled some tite bond glue for me... I could not find anything like this in Taiwan, no one heard of it...

I like this idea.

All of the other's are so Fender typical. Not that that's a bad thing but since you have the opportunity and ability to try something new.... why not.
