here is a guitar I have been working on for the past day. just about finished it up this evening, ready for the finishing room very soon.

Lacewood body (prs style) with quilted maple cap, hard maple neck with lacewood headstock veneer.

its getting a set of STew Mac "vintage vibe" uncovered HB's, a Baggs piezo tunomatic bridge, string through body ferrules, grover tuners, graphtec nut. volume, tone, blend & selector switch for the pups and a three way pup switch.

will post a pic when its done.

Unfortunately, this one isnt mine, its a custom order from a friend of my girlfriends, for his daughter (christmas gift). Hope he & she likes it!

Great Lookin guitar AJ. I've thought about using lacewood because I like the look but it just seemed to be very heavy.

I bought this lacewood from A&M wood specialty in Cambridge, ON. Its actually quite like the African mahogany I usually use - not too heavy at all!

The lacewood works really really well. Sands easy and machines very smoothly.

I finished spraying the lacquer today. WIll post pics when its done!

I'm certainly looking forward to the pics. :bow: I am also going to try lacewood in the near future. Thanks to you for that. :banana:

hey guys,
I finished spraying the guitar body and neck this weekend. Today I just set the neck on with two screws to get some pics...

the body is as-sprayed, ie, I still need to let it sit for a few days and then wet sand, and rub it out and polish.

Its not too flashy, but the colour looks good with the lacewood.
