    I have a couple of parts for this.
    Basically the shape of the Reverend Club King but with a maple neck and several other oddities.

    It'll be really interesting to see how this comes out.

    There should be a "Da-da-DAAAAAAA" sound to go with this!

    Don't confuse me man, Drumbob is getting the pointy one... nothing odd about this juxtaposition.

    Yea, I'm a bit confused - Dead Roman usually likes guitars like this:

    Wonder what a case for that would look like?

    I could never craft a guitar (being someone who measures twice, cuts once, and throws out that piece to try again), so I always looks forward to the pics of the progress.

    Ha, I measure five times, still cut it short and then just adjust the design to suit :D

    Oh, this will be a special one!
    Having a guitar custom-built that is so individualised that you can not flip it easily, is not DeadRomans usual strategy.

    Maybe he's dipping his toes with a new strategy? ;)

    My local pawn shop has a Washburn Dime Bag Guitar he might be interested in.
