    Thanks! I hear ya on Explorers! They really do have it all - complete rock machine but still classically beautiful. The main thing for me tho is how comfortable they are to play.

    Hi all, hereís my entry. ES-12 with mahogany body. I did a few alterations like the headstock shape, as the ďGibsonĒ shape was way off centre so I chopped it off. Then added some mahogany strips for a bit of character. I also added a gold output jack and a gold truss rod cover to go with the rest of the hardware. I was going to go with a straight color on the front but the amount of glue around the bindings needed to be covered with a burst.l hope you like it.

    My first kit JB4. 3 months of love, blood & sweat thru summer.
    Complete stock kit. The basswood body was actually 7 pieces jumbled together, I have never spray painted before so I continued on with the stain plan. I have grown to love each & every join, grain change & high n low spot.
    Finish is orange Jacquard Basic Dye stain with Tru Oil final finish on body, neck & headstock. Lemon oil on fretboard.
    Plays beautifully & the sustain is long & strong.
    Huge thanks again to the members of the Pitbull Community for all your help!
