Great effort and result Clarky, sounds awesome, some people poo poo the cheap no name Pups from Ebay, I use them and love them, love the Box and the added Side Wings, looks great!  :-)

Cheers Dennis, I use a drill and small sander to finish off but do most of the sanding by hand. The pickup is just a no name o e from ebay from a chinese firm, it cost £10. Thanks for watching my video :)

Awesome tonemonster Clarky, love the video and that you use mainly hand tools, I do too except for a drill & electric planer bought for me as a present. What make is that pickup? Sounds fantastic & will really suit your music tastes. The shaped wood sides are a great idea :))

Thanks Uncle J, I'm not against machinery and I know some out there need to make loads of these guitars to make a living, but for me the fun is in the taking time, shaping the neck, cutting things by hand etc etc.

Thanks Poorness Studios.  Once I work out how to do time lapse videos I'll actually include the bits where I do the work :)

Really nice build and great documentation Clarky. That thing sounds killer. Great vid overall. More of these please. :-)

Good on you folks that build with hand tools.  Nice work with the shaping tool.  I like those thin insets for bracing.  A very nice outcome.
