Grant (Lostinverness) made that one for me, first time seeing it today. Now I’ll make a pick guard for it and do the finishing but Grant has done an amazing job on building the body and setting it up!
The top is Macrocarpa from my parents farm that was planted my birth year (1982)

It's Mark's (sopachrga) AxeFx, was funny, a few thought it was Matt's plexi making all the good noises lol, it sounded insanely good, I doubt anyone could tell the difference!

That’s just the natural unfinished wood colour, I’ll most likely go for a 2 tone subtle burst of amber/yellow ish and coffee ish around the edges. Maybe a pearliod pickguard colour too. Not 100% certain yet.

Some nice looking gear there, must have been fun!
Indeed I often wonder where Norman is now. Probably wintering with his mother in Guildford. A cat, rain, Vim under the sink, and both bars on. But old now, there is no true beauty without decay.
