    My GS-7Q

    Finish on this guitar was a homemade wipe-on poly. Pickups upgraded with Warman Deadly Sinners set, direct mounted into the modified cavity. All pots and wiring upgraded. Neck heel modified to better fit the neck pocket.

    This is my ATL-1SB kit, and it's my first Pitbull build. It features a stained neck & headstock, and custom plywood pickguard that I made. The finish is a thin satin polyurethane, which is thin enough that you can still feel plenty of grain.
    The guitar is built for live gigs, and includes the following upgrades:
    - Tonerider Hot Classic pickups
    - bone nut
    - Grover locking tuners
    - converted to string-through setup
    - fully shielded internals
    - full size Alpha pots, Switchcraft jack and Fender-style selector switch
    - shielded pickup wire feed tube for easy maintenance

    my MBM Build

    i wanted a hard rock guitar for a while now, and i really love the mockingburd shape
    i did an arm contour before grain filling, my 4 year old helped with that..
    after 3 times grain filling with black (ash body requires a lot of work, apparently) i used a tinted shellac as the finish and the paint itself for a blue-green burst
    afterwards i did some clear coats with shellac and worked with steel wool for a matte finish
    the neck was done with tung oil
    pickups are warman zebras

    this was my first (hope full out of many!) build
