Started putting the finish on, the maple top is looking real nice, I love the flame on it. Over the next few days I'll just be slowly building up the finish, just like the last build this one is Shellac followed by TRU-Oil.

Lovely Flame there Maurits. This whole build really appeals to my eye. ;)

Thanks Rob, what I really like about this maple is that the flame isn't all that regular, on guitars like PRS's (beautiful guitars, don't get me wrong) the flame is often very regular and even which can be gorgeous too but I prefer this. Good thing too as those 4A tops will cost you more than all the bits and pieces of this guitar put together  :D

That's looking really sharp! Can't wait to see what it looks like with a finish on that maple.

Well, it's all done!
Finished it a couple of days ago, and after some fret work it was playing wonderfully, doesn't sound too shabby either with those P90's. The neck came out just like I wanted it, slightly wider than your standard electric and a nice comfy handful. Really happy with how it came out.

That looks great! I love how clean it looks with the P-90's, stop tail, and the maple top. No clutter, just business.

Thanks so much guys.
And looks or whatever aside, it's great if a guitar looks halfway decent but I just really enjoy playing this thing which is the most important thing. On the mahogany hollowbody the neck isn't exactly where I want it to be (still need plenty of practice eh?), still nice but not perfect. This one is just so, if it's making me want to play it more and more I think I have succeeded  :)
I'll hook up the THR to my computer soon and post some sounds soon.
