#2 - "Vintage" V6X

Goal for this build was to complement my existing guitars... all of which are fixed bridge dual-humbuckers.

The idea is to end up with the modern ergonomics and high-perforamance trem of the V6X (plus size, weight, etc), while going with distinctly vintage appointments and woods for that classic S sound.

Is the gold top just going on the top, or all over?

All over. No top on the guitar, no RNC.

Like this one:

That's overall quite close to what I'm speccing, except:

Black logo instead of the drop shadow gold
Black dot inlays
SSS config
Trem

3 weeks in... 1/3rd of the way through, in theory. In practice I'm probably getting behind the holiday rush so I'm figuring probably a 10-11 week build.

I'm way out on the right coast so it looks like it's going to be Saturday.
