I never saw an offset guitar before. That thing is going to be cool!

I think you nailed the proportions on the guitar. It just looks right.

You nailed the Gretsch vibe.
If you can stand one more pile on, let me add: cool stuff Anthony!

A picture of what the bridge is looking like. I think it adds some more movement to the guitar and really makes sense once the pickguard is on. Still have to correct the bigsby shim to correct the alignment, get the nut cut and glued in, and get the guitar sanded up before paint.

Strung up and played it for a spell before disassembling, raising the grain, and sanding. This will be the last picture where wood is seen. Goodbye maple and mahogany. The next photos will have either white primer, silver metallic, or the candy apple applied.

WOW! You have designed a seriously cool guitar. I love the narrow f-holes.

Anthony,
Very cool design! I think you've hit rock-a-billy out of the park with this design and the choice of hardware and finish.

I'm looking forward to seeing the finished instrument.

Tape is peeled. Lots of binding to scrape today and more clear coats. I think this would look good as a satin finish one day.
