    Yes you guessed it .... another Caparison / Mayones fusion project

    Horus / TAT special body shape (24 frets though) with regius headstock.

    Specs:
    -Calro walnut / tasmanian blackwood / claro walnut 3 piece body. Padouk / Black bindings to body.
    - Wenge /Maple strip / padouk veneer / Tas blackwood set neck
    - bubinga fretboard with black bindings
    - redwood burl headstock and body infill between the walnut wings.
    - SD pickups H/S configuration
    - OFR tremolo system.

    Been trying out different techniques thus far for my previous builds, so no exception here. First time working on a setneck build and i can definitely see the plus side in this. Much easier to plan out your build and easier to work on hard to reach places with neck thrus.







    Will be refining the body shape, either sharpern the upper horn, or rounding off the bottom.

    This has probably all my favourite woods so am really hoping it'll turn out well

    Main shape done.



    Chamfered the top edges, ready for carving.



    Back cavity. Someone's being nosey



    Inconsistent lamination thickness resulted in this. Ah damn...
