EDIT:  here's the final.  Scroll down to see it built step by step

A new client build. Here's a photoshopped idea for a general shape. I'm going for a hot rod, chevy tail fin vibe. The wood in this idea shot is 2 pieces of African Black Walnut with a racing stripe down the center made of Bloodwood/Maple/Bloodwood, just laying next to each other - no glue. Nothing is definite yet but the wheels are turning...

<(shape is PhotoShopped, just wait till I make sawdust)

I was waiting to show the neck and early headstock, but they forced it out of me

It's far from finished and rumor has it leather might be involved...

Hmmmmmmm, maybe there is something to that leather rumor...

Bridge cover and control cover. I like the shapes but not sure about the woods. Comments?

Nice, but I'm not sure there is enough contrast with the body. You still against using chrome (to give the appearance of a Hot Rod engine or exhaust)?

For some reason chrome isn't screaming at me. I just went down and roughed a brass control cover. I'm thinking that I'll slice the bridge cover and add the racing stripes.

I'm also thinking about walnut knobs with a maple stripe. ? ? ?

or a real dark wood control cover with maple knobs and walnut stripe...

I'll figure it out
