Ok, I watched some of the LOTR trilogy on T.V. this weekend. But this project is turning out even cooler than I initially thought it was going to. The Capt. and all his V talk got me gassing. So I plunked down some dough to KNE and got a King V body. The body just came in today and it's stellar. 2 pc. center joined Mahogany. It's kind of hard to see the grain on it in the pix, but it looks really nice. I think I'm going to oil finish it. Gold hardware. I need to pick up a few misc. screws and get my pickups but other than that, I have everything for it! Check out some pix!

At first I was going to go w/ a Floyd since I got the necks for cheap, but then I found a fine tuning tail pc. by Gibson that will look pretty rad and work the same tuning wise as a floyd. It was either that or a Kahler 7330 flat mount.

Either way I prefer the feel of a guitar that has a locking nut over a standard nut So it works out both ways.

If I had any clue how to do that, I probably would. I'm the tech geek remember. You are the painter.

Well I would send it off to be done professionally, but my usual guy has been complaining about being backlogged and overworked. So I'll just tackle this one myself

Brent,

How much business have you done with KNE? I just emailed them about a custom body, curious...

This is the 2nd body I've gotten from him (Mitch) and they were both stellar in craftsmanship. Warmoth has nothing on this guy for just straight up rocking bodies! Vin has gotten a couple Rhoads V bodies from him as well they were both killer.
