So David got the final coats of lacquer on my guitar and got it all buffed out. He's going to drop the electronics in it for me this week and *hopefully* get it shipped out soon. I put together a web gallery of the progress so far here: Guitar Gallery

So I came across a builder who specializes in "Languedoc-ish" custom hollowbody guitars and after looking into getting an actual Languedoc G2, I realized that there was no way in hell I could shell out 10k for a guitar. The man with the plan is a guy named David from Equator Instruments (a Chicagoan who lives in Quito Ecuador 9 months of the year to build). It's a full hollow, cedar top, masacare sides, walnut back, colorado neck (medium "c" carve) w/clavalin headstock veneer and ebony fretboard. It will be outfitted with a pair of Seymour Duncan '59's (like in my old Gibson). Below is a pic of it after the neck was set.
If you click on THIS LINK, you can see a full gallery of it in the process of it being built (at least to where it is today).

The Tater-Tot Omelet was a complete and total success! I started with your usual omelet fodder, and sweated some mushrooms, onions and peppers. Chopped up some thick sliced bacon, added the glorious tots and cheese and cooked to perfection. I doused that bad chicken in Tabasco and proceeded to crush it, and it was wonderful. I've documented the procedure for you below.
