    I had a little tinker on this last weekend. The neck is just amazing. A lot of cash though.

    Ibanez JS10th #498

    It's been well played these past 17 years, so it shows on the body. I still think she's gorgeous :wub:

    I miss this thread.

    This may be my favorite guitar I have seen in a very long time. In fact, everything I've seen these people craft is exquisite. Their Instagram is filled with some serious guitar porn. They have a pretty charming IG. I've only ever seen them there, and never mentioned here in SSO. They go by the name Jersey Girl Homemade guitars (JGHG). I believe it's two people taking care of the design, woodworking, and finishing, and someone else in charge of electronics. They also have a guy that makes all their own straps.

    The inlay and purfling work kill me. Not to mention the pickup covers and floating tailpiece. Insane attention to detail everywhere.

    It's just really, really neat work, and I love it.

    I think they missed out a little on that one. The volume and tone knobs could be abalone, the tuner heads, the fine tuner knobs, the pickup switch tip....

    One of the few guitars I think I could still justify owning if I had your building skills!
