Congrats sir. You are on to something here. I was in the hunt for a wide neck electric a year ago and ended up purchasing an Eastman t486sb. Howard offered me his as well :-) Any consideration to making a 1-7/8 neck?

Howard, didn't you post (in some other thread) a video playing this? Envy.

Smile Good Idea!

My wish list. Not that I ever play electric but I have a couple, in case pals come over to jam. Or for quiet unplugged practice. Occasionally on a full moon I will plug in and rock some nasty slide licks…. Hahaha

PRS style 25” scale. Or even 24.75”
12-53 strings setup to tune to D
EVO Gold frets.
Hollow body with F holes
Super light weight.
1.8” nut.
Natural woods.
I like your herringbone idea!

For me, a slim mod V neck with a slight asymmetrical carve.
Rolled fretboard edges for sure

Maybe an arm bevel and tummy carve, too.

Rounded edges through out. I don’t want instruments that hurt me. Hahaha

A GraphTech piezo bridge or similar in addition to electric pups.

Probably come up with more ideas eventually. Sheesh!

Have fun and best on the builds!!!

For Sale, Michaud 0-R

3 John Kinnaird Short Scale 12 fret cut Customs:
Big Maple/Cedar Dread
Jumbo Spanish Cedar/WRC
Jumbo OLD Brazilian RW/WRC

R.T 2c 12 fret Custom
