Oh, they did tell me a special order could take 8 months or more.

OK, how about your stock case with fake crocodile tolex and a royal purple mouse hide inside?

You know it did!  

 

  Looks pretty cool. Remember, there is a looong wait in spray. It will look pretty much like this until it's all done.

OK, to start the control layout, is this about where you want the master volume to land?

That will have to wait until next week. Everything is wet right now.

I've dreamed of seeing such a guitar come to fruition for quite some time.... The only thing I pictured different was a reverse headstock, and stinger omega....  
 
Congrats John, this is shaping up to be quite the guitar!!!!

Hard to tell without the bridge..   Maybe to the left 1 or 2 mm and down 1 or 2 mm.  Can you photoshop a bridge on it?
 
Thanks! Truly Tremendous TriO

I got a very nice reply from Igarashi at Aero Concept. The guitar case is a display item only, but they will make a custom order.  
 
The price is about 1,500,000 Yen, plus they said they need the guitar to fit it and maybe 2 or 3 visits to their factory to check details. Not sure about the total time to manufacture.
 
Now you know.
