Seller notes: Needs pickups and assembling.
The auction is for a Flying V project, included are the neck, body, machine head tuners, bridge and electrics, neck ferrules and screws. All you need are humbuckers, strings and a setup to get it going!

This was a guitar body project made from wood turning pen blanks (49 in total). The centre piece is English ash blank, back is made up from wild cherry and koto veneer, the front (centre outwards) is made up from American walnut, rippled sycamore, spalted chestnut, brown oak, olive ash (pattern then repeats backwards).

The neck came off a warlock copy, it's straight and the truss rod works. Quite a chunky profile but it's comfortable to play, 24th fret inlay dots are slightly uneven and the headstock finish could do with tidying up, but overall it's in good condition and fits the body perfectly. Machineheads are standard stock tuners.

This is a really nice player, body has tummy and leg contours, very nice low action when set up and certainly one of a kind. I have too many guitars and new projects going on so I have to thin the herd (and I have another Flying V too).
The finish could do with a proper lacquer coat as the current one is only shellac and isn't perfect. Also, some wood filler was used on the volume/toggle switch holes (can't tell with the electrics installed) and also on a neck ferrule hole, it's not that noticeable though.
