It's been a while since I assembled anything.

All Mahogany Deacon with Dragon Fire mini humbuckers, 5 way switch and a Woody pickguard.

Nice work, Mike. So, spare parts, or a remodel of previous instrument? Reason being, those bridges are becoming "hen's teeth"!

Alpep still has a few of the bridges!

The Neck and Body came from parts unknown and were stripped and lacquered.

Mike, just saw this, another nice one!

It looks like you used the standard 3-screw pickup mounting. Did you adapt 2-screw mini humbuckers to fit? I've thought of making a mounting plate/adapter but haven't done it.

What is the 5-way switch doing with 2 pickups?

Well... you were BFLG before there was a forum catagory, if I remember correctly. 

Founders are relevant for life. 

 

Beautiful job, Mike. I'm a sucker for mahogany.

Yeah, this venue has morphed quite a bit from the do-it-cheap guitar hacking from past years. I will post my electric baritone uke pretty soon. It's kinda a wee-small Les Paul, with 4 strings, & definitely, bottomfeeding. I'm letting the lacquer harden- took about 8 coats, too.

That sounds cool too!

The way things are going, I might have to do a BFLG Memorial calendar next year! We're running out of room for normal guitars.

Stunning, MWoody! Thanks for sharing! Man, the last thing I need is an O-Electric GAS attack! But then, I sure would love to hear what that Deacon sounds like...any chance of a video?
