    February 2017 GOTM

    Here goes.
    This is my first build (but it wont be my last ). I got the kit a year a go for Christmas and finished it today. I always wanted one of those hot looking PRS's but could never afford one. I'm pretty damn happy about now.
    This has some mods which came form a friend who was changing stuff out of his PRS SE. It has PRS S2 pickups and tuners, I also put a Schaller Signum bridge in. Pickups are coil split on a push pull vol pot.
    The colour is Parker Pen water based ink, hand applied a few times, with some extra tones added in via some black ink, such as what you see on the back and sides. I also washed out some colour with water here and there. Top coat clear is marine varnish (about 10 coats),...I wont be using that again.
    It plays and sounds great.

    Hi again everyone. Might as well put this one in for GOTM.

    Its a Pitbull SGD-612 kit. This kit is completely PBG stock EXCEPT I pulled apart the pickups swapped the ceramic magnet with alnico 5's and wax potted them. - It has all the other Chinese parts and electrics installed in it. The burst is all Dingotone, its Black stump and Coolangatta gold and the blend strip is 50/50 Outback sunset and Karajini Red. The finish is Tru oil.

    I am nowhere near anywhere as professional as the builders here. I hope to get there some day with every kit i build and learn as i go.
    Here is my best build so far i feel. EX-5 Explorer 5 String Bass.
    It was a struggle to get the action spot on with the extra height on the bridge, but got there in the end with a couple of shims.
