    If all goes to plan, I should have an empty house between 2:00 and 4:30.
    Time to break out the soldering iron.:applause:

    You know what, If I had the money I'd have you build me a 2 Humbucker version of it in a heartbeat. Your guitars are just too cool, really. Same applies to Barnaby.
    Way to many talented builders on this forum.

    Not only is it "dead sexy", it also sounds exactly like a complete band...drums included!
    And, TKO, your playing has really gotten better. Kudos all around.



    ....wait......my wife just said that there's a chance the music wasn't actually you playing
    this guitar. At first I said, "Oh, you silly woman, of course it is". Upon further review, she
    may very well be right.

    I've been hanging out here for about a year reading all of these outstanding posts. I'm building a shop now and looking forward to taking on a build someday. I'd have to say this is one of the best I've ever read/seen. Outstanding work! Incredible.

    Hello, I'm Victor, and I'm addicted to TKO's builds.

    And every time I watch those TKO's buildds, I can not resist but comparing his binding to my binding. And his binding has like 2 times more plies than mine! And much cleaner!

    His craftsmanship... sob... :( :Ohno:

    I tried to divert my fixation with many distractions, like booze, family... even ponies! ...but nothing works really well...
    I need halp.

    TKO, please adopt and couch me! :thumbs:

    First off, Welcome to the madhouse moonrock.:wave:
    I'm glad we were finally able to coax you out of hiding.
    Thank you for the kind words, and I'm looking foward to seeing one of your builds threads one of these days. Ya know we're all build thread junkies around here.:naughty:

    You know what they say, Victor; binding size DOES matter.

    But... But I'm an excellent chef, can drink and behave, shoot anything up to 152 mm and drive an automobile with a manual transmission!
    ...Plox? :bowdown

    Ok, seriously. TKO, I (humbly) suggest you'd create a manual how to achieve such magnificent results. Step by step. It would be a sure sticky, I say.:thumb:

    I see one thing that is glaringly wrong with this guitar - It is right handed. :) Beautiful job!

    When do we get to hear the voice of the beast? We're all waiting to shower further praise upon you for the tone...:hyper:

    Seriously, man, next to your work, I feel like I'm producing broomsticks with nails in 'em. Just lovely stuff.
