Post PGM VIOLIN guitar body
I am getting ready to build one...can anyone tell me if the top is flat (like a RG) or Carved (like a Les Paul)?

Lot's of you are asking me to build one...as soon as I get this question answered, I am going to start building

Thanks

That's what I never found out. I'm guessing it is carved?

I think just based on the shape of the bridge pickup ring here, it is carved ? :

What the hell....

I'm going to make it carved, even if it's not!

I think it will look cool!

Thoughts?

It appears to be a set neck. Notice how far the body goes up the neck. What type of neck/neck pocket config are you doing?

actually if you watch the snowball of doom dvd you can see the back of the guitar...it is a bolt-on neck.

I remember it was the last Anehiem show, the year before they moved it to L.A.

I worked the Egnater booth for quite a few years

Not going this year......wife & kids=no time for NAMM

Did you get my "let's trade bodies" offer?

I'm pretty sure it's indeed a set neck.
Here's a shot from Snowball :
Image
(the guitar used there in Godzilla actually isn't the standard 700, but a baritone 700..)
Here's a shot from 11.000 notes (the red 700):
Image
(also note the different placement of strap button between the baritone and standard 700 :))
And another shot from Guitar from Mars :
Image
Can't see the back here, but the neck's just too deep into the back of the body to be a bolt on I think.
I'm such a geek :D..
