    Strong magnets are holding the backplate.There is a small amount of wood that is removed. You can pull it with your nails or sth

    This is just unbelievably clean work. Just imagine how would his fathers works look with all the usual figured wood extravaganza. (Yes, we are terribly spoilt :fawk: )

    Great work by your old man! Looks clean and classy :agreed:

    Make sure the owner of ViK doesn't see this, lol. If he does... 'Consequences will never be the same'

    My personal opinion is that this guitar is the essence of custom made craftsmanship - simple, great bodyline, 100% handmade. I really like the work of independent luthiers ands small guitar shops. My compliments to your father, I've read your build thread and I really think he's a master of his craft.

    More pics and samples will be welcome.
    Also, I've got couple of questions - was the logo on the last picture pyrographed and how much did you pay for the hipshot bridge (VAT, taxes etc.)?

    I imagined it to open the same way the guitar was made; by sheer force of will:hbang:
