    Hi all,

    Thought I'd start a thread on my new Ran Cruiser Semi Hollow build.

    Spec's:

    6 string - 24 fret
    Semi hollow - 1 F hole
    Mahogany body, 5a Quilt top, 3 piece Mahogany/Maple/Mahogany neck, Cocobolo fretboard and headstock veneer
    Reverse Headstock
    24 frets with offset dots (no 24th fret inlays)
    ETS Tuningfork
    Gotoh tuners - Gold
    Ivoroid body binding
    Elysian pickups - HH
    Natural Gloss Finish

    The mockup will be here next week and I'll post, but for the time being here are some of the pieces:
