This guitar is so awesome.  Who owns it?
That is the SECOND prototype version of the Marauder. The first (that even made it into the product catalogue before aborted) looks exactly like kiflas.

Someone knows where I can find the nearest woodchipper to throw my pieces of junk into?

And BTW - the mark II prototype is owned by Dave's guitars

Wow...  that is one sexy beast. 

No offense, but I don't even care about the fact that the pickups are hidden, I would absolutely love to have a guitar with that body shape (maybe slightly darker blue or black). 

I wish I had the skillz to put one together and just use a large headstock neck from a strat, even with visible pickups.

I know there's a coolness factor for having replica of something that was never made.  From my perspective it's just the fact that it looks like a great design.

Yeah, I agree. I couldn't care less about having an "authentic replica", I just loooove the shape.  :-* :-* :-* :? :? :?

They're all coming along great! Fantastic work, and glad to see you got your plates back.  :)

... I have to ask, once you're finished these two, you going to make a Marauder II then ?  ;)

Kifla,
Have you considered making a Marauder body template available?

No, don't realy like it....that guitar looks to me  like an act of desperation. Or some Gizmo from '60 SF movie.  :-\

And that's the way it should be!!Image
It's good to have so many type of guitars...cars, phones...you name it.

Nevertheless, today I bought some L-profile material...

... and cut it into a roller bracket for Marauder:

Looks like this:

Not like original, but will do. ;)

On the B&B ebony neck I've drilled tuner holes, profiled the headstock and installed side dots:

Left back profiling for tomorrow. Maybe. ::)

Excellent work. You should set up some guitar making courses. Really.
