Liona is a 4 string, standard tuning DGBE, piezo pickup. Chrome details - corners, tuners, volume knob.All parts that could be were sourced from C B Gitty. The fret dots are punched from guitar picks and glued in place. I use a 1/4 inch punch fitted into a drill press to make the dots and get 6 dots to a pick.

Hey Bob and Poorness Studios - thanks for the kind words. And yes it is a Gibson inspired headstock - it lacks the dimple at the peak.

Very nice. Tidy and built for purpose.

That is one great lookin' git. I like the headstock (kinda Gibson-esque) and the fret markers. Clean lines and a great look. Good move using the back of the box. Nicely done overall.
