My My, I cant wait to see more.

Are you comfortable with the neck pocket? I hope that it isn't too fragile.................

This is going to be a fine bolt on

When I did my "Ultrash VVV", I had a problem with the back of the guitar, where the neck joins the body. It was hard to get those "flat parts" (I don't know how to describe them) that form a V - V's are everywhere on this guitar, very eighties design...
Here's a picture for example. I cannot see clearly those flat parts on the pictures of your custom VV. Will you do them?

neck joints been made to more of a "new style" to feel like a neck through. when talking with rhe builder, i wanted the vv design but with a bit of my own twist to it. this will be my main workhorse once its completed

Looks great!

I like the way that, even though it IS a Jackson neck, you've decided to put your luthier's name on the headstock.
