Maple SG

Finished this one the end of last year.
Maple, Mahogany, and Bocote. Koa backstrap.
It was a gift for my uncle. He plays the heck out of it.

That looks great! I think it might be my favorite of the guitars you have shown pictures of.

Thanks Mark. Good to be back. It seems if I don't login for a few weeks I get dropped from post notices. I get busy and just forget to check in and see what's going on.

That's a nice looking SG Dan.
Nice work on the neck joint.
I need your help. I can't possibly make all the mistakes myself!

Great job, and what a generous gift!

Is that a lacquer finish? I want to gift a guitar to a family member someday, but I don't know if I could ever bring myself to spray lacquer without getting paid!
