    Milled the body. I love the blue and mahogany contrast.

    The route through the upper horn is too deep. I'm gonna have to fill it with something. Mayyyyybe wood. Probably more like black epoxy.

    So a month or so ago I milled a tele body but the bit crashed and ruined it. However I figured out I can fit this body on the wood and all the routes will be hidden by contours. Though not quite as the route through the neck pocket is too deep. But I'll make that work somehow.

    I actually like the Sentient in the neck position for cleans, but that's about it. FWIW I also spaced it pretty close to the strings to get a hot sound out of it. Agree on the Nazgul for hugs and searing leads. I found the Instrumental pickups a bit more articulate and refined, but not quite as all out nasty.

    Aw, that's disappointing. I've always though my pickups were lacking a little affection.

    Shit, sorry to hear about the original neck. I was looking forward to seeing the finished product, and I really loved the lines and carves of the body, especially with the grain of the pine. I really wish pine wasn't so soft because it could look awesome with the right grain and could make for nice guitar bodies.
