    How about a nice pointy Flying V or a Dean V Headstock?

    Yeah, and a Floyd Rose. I'm supposed to deliver this guitar Thursday morning.

    Sounds like the subject for a reality show.

    No doubt, the Flying Pig is starting to resemble Orange County Choppers!

    So, this is where I am - do you think I can deliver the guitar tomorrow morning?

    I actually was ready to assemble and cut a nut, and would have easily had it ready tonight, but the body was totally f***ed. Cavity too narrow for pickups, drilled for wrong bridge. Gonna scrap it and start over with another body. Nicer grain pattern and an f-hole.

    Wow. Forgot the f-hole, turns out the body is completely unusable... and this is from the much-vaunted Tommy at USACG? Why, to hear it told on interwebz fora, Tommy walks on water and hands out free ice cream on the shore. Better than Warmoth by at least two country miles (although nobody has ever been able to pin down just exactly what he's so much better at... talking on the phone is my guess).

    Anyway, important safety tip. Even the gods screw up sometimes.

    Holy smoot.... that sucks! All that work for naught! Too bad.... I kinda like the Brown Dirt brown. Can you find pickups to fit? And a good bridge that fits?
