Dave and Ed,
  Looks like they just put a left hand neck on a right hand body.
Just for fun ? ? Looks ? ? or what ? ?
Cool anyway.
Thanks,
RC

Well, not really, Rc, as the side dots for the fret markers have to be installed as well so if it was a lefty neck for a righty, there would be no side markers for the player to see  ;). They just make the necks in both styles as a preference thing. The black with silver metalflake crackle I showed is actually a neck-through guitar.

Ian: very cool that you made just about everything and the bass, including the pickups. I guess since the tuners are socket head cap screws, it's a good thing it stays in tune very well-  :D

Ed: Yep, but I don't really consider myself a collector, more of a "hoarder" lol!!

I'll post some more soon-

Thanks for sharing!
Dave

I gotcha Dave, thanks.
I also see that the "Jackson" on the head would be upside down if it were a LH neck on a RH body.
I notice that on most all electrics I've seen that have in-line machine heads, the low E is shortest from the post to the nut and the hi E is the longest.
Any ill effects of reversing this arrangement ?

Of course it's no issue with the 2 x 3 machine head arrangement on some electrics and most acoustics.
Just wondering.... and you'd probably know.
Thanks again,
rC

Sam,

Heres a pic of the titanium scope mount, lower left pic.  Lower right is Colt gold cup, in SS.
 Upper right is a Ruger 22 slab side.  Upper left is Para Ordinance 45.

Titanium isn't bad to machine, just run tools at about half speed of normal. This was all done with high speed tools. The star was done with wire edm, I once ran at a job.
I'm a lot better with one of these than a Guitar. and make more noise.  ;D
And easier to Tune.

Nice, Ed. I wish we had a good EDM. We had to turn down a job a couple days ago because ours wasn't capable of doing it. It's ready for the scrap heap, along with the seiki VMC. I was tempted to buy a S&W today, but it was a .40 cal, and I want a wide body 9mm. I did purchase a Jackson PS4 on ebay today, hope it arrives and all is well. Normally, used guitars are not something you want to get from ebay. Crossing my fingers. Do me a favor Dave and cross yours for me too! It's not a high end model, but it's a definite step up from the Ibanez.
