This one will be heavily inspired by the Music Man Axis.

 

The headstock blank with an outline drawn and center-markers for the holes for the tuning machines.

October: normal prime month!

22 September 2018 - 01:10 AM

I'll post this now with a little over a week left of September. Does anyone want to shoot along with me for the month of October?

Mount that 35 on DX or 50 on FX and get out with your camera.

 

We will post the photos in this thread.

The headstock roughly shaped and the fretboard taped off for protection.
