33 1/2" scale, Dimarzio pickups, Stainless frets, set Maple neck with Mahogany center section. Alder body, Schaller bridge and tuners and custom finished in an extra large Green flake with a chameleon pearl added 2K urethane.Image

It's a set neck. The neck tennon actually runs under and through the top two pickup cavities.

Beauty Brian.

Kind of hard to tell so I'll ask; Did you paint the fret dots? If so- what I cool idea. They look metal flake to me.
Very curious and interested in how you painted that beautiful flake finish. You sure inspire me to at least trying to learn how to paint.
