Wow, so I been busy and “I'm so glad, I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad”.

This is a semi hollow guitar, with salvaged Peavey T-60 pups and electronics intact. I built the body from a NOS Gretch top, salvaged Harmony tailpiece.
The bridge and tuners are Gotoh. I bought the neck, (MIC), it's an SG type.
The back is Sapele veneer.

This bass is my idea of a viol shaped solid body, fretless.
The body was lumber, 1 inch Mahogany back, and a 1/2 inch carved Ash archtop, black binding.
The neck is a Mighty Might Precision bass fretless neck with an Ebinol fingerboard.
Squire tuners, Washburn bridge and tailpiece, and Dimarzio pups.

You have been busy! Nice work. The rear over on the ontrol cavity on the guitar is a cool touch.

Really nice BB! I really like the bass, 'cuz it kinda sez', "Look at me. I'm different". Great visual theme for a fretless.

The top one (twin horn) looks a bit like the newer Vox guitars. Nice woodwork!

Oh yeah, I like those new Vox semi-hollows and I was partly inspired by those, but that style cutaway goes back 500 years, as it's called a Florentine cut away.
Teisco made some hollow body guitars like that back in the 1960s.
