For some reason, and don't ask me why, this is the most appealing Z I've seen so far (although I don't like colored blocks on boards.. but that's just me, it took me a long time to warm up to blocks period, which is why my 150 was ordered instead of a 160K.. I wanted to avoid the block inlays; obviously since then I've warmed up to MOP and pearloid).

Two very rough mock ups of the Zeus that I think improve by shaving some body off and adding a cutaway.. looks like a stubby version the US continent)

or, shaving less off:

Yup, the general idea, turning it into a very unique dc stubby rather than that disproportionate single.

I actually like this Vanquish. That is a nice piece of Ebony on that finger board. The blue inlays are working for me. I like the Blue (Grabber?) with Black bevels too. NICE! I don't even care that the Blues don't match. I LIKE IT!
Reminds me of my Yamaha Racebikes.....minus some white graphics. Good Job! :applause:

The owner of that one posted on Facebook. He said he was calling it pistachio pie.

Y'know, I didn't even think Grabber blue when I 1st saw that (not a fan). But I like this combo. 8)

(Still, its missing a tone knob for me.)

Looks like Jeff's building a double-neck Zeus, with two one-piece necks, either mahogany or plain koa.
