I've been working on this one for a while and it's finally done. Walnut Shoreline gold Outcaster with Lollar P90s, Gotoh hardware and an inset mirror gold pick guard.

Thanks all, I am pretty happy with it. I noticed one of my pickups was lower after I took all those pics lol. It's all set up now and man those Lollars sound so good. Glad I tried them.

Oh man, that is something. I've wanted to do an inlaid pickguard for years, and just never got around to it. Great work!

Thanks! I just knew I was going to scratch that all up at some time during the process of making the pick guard. I can't believe I didn't. The drill press caught it once when i was drilling the bridge holes in it and it went for a high speed RPM merry go round ride lol. Go figure how it made it through that unscathed.

That is just gorgeous! Razz

Curious, you have a tune-o-matic so does that mean the neck has a slight pitch- angle with the body?

I've seen guitar with straight necks, e.g. Carvin but the tune-o-matic is recessed in the body.

Look at the full body shot, you can see the pitch. Especially in how the binding rises away from the top.

Yep, it's a 2.5 degree tenon.
