Limba/Bubinga Protos build

Limba/Bubinga ProtosRich ChaffinsComment

Hello...we meet again. So, I'd put up a few pics of this build in its infancy, and it has now reached what could ostensibly be called its teens. This build is a testing ground of sorts for me. The body is my Protos model, which is a slightly curvier version of "that" guitar shape. That's where the similarities end. With this build, I'm trying to make it the least like "that" guitar as possible. How, you ask? Like this:

  • 1" white limba back, 3/4" bubinga top
  • f-holes (literally holes, as usual) in a solid body guitar
  • 3-on-a-side tuners, with my Design 1 headstock
  • Walnut neck, macassar ebony fretboard
  • GFS P90 in the neck, GFS repro of Fender wide range humbucker in the bridge. Stellartone Tonestyler tone control
  • Big honkin' neck, inspired by a replacement neck my friend Caleb got for his Strat, glued in
      So, as specs indicate, not very "T"-y. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.  This'll be my first set neck guitar. Looking quite forward to it!
      Here are some pics that I've taken so far. Questions/comments/concerns, let me know. Thanks for checking it out![gallery]
