    Looked many times but never bought. When I do a build, I'll definitely give them a try!

    +1 for Tonebomb bodies -- I built 4 guitars last year from raw bodies ... the Tonebomb body (mine was a mustang) was by FAR the finest, despite the fact that it was not even close to the most expensive of the 4

    Well done! Those look great! I have to tell you though, it looks like you got the bodies backwards

    I sold this but it was a Tone Bomb body that I finished in nitro. They do very good work.
