Still some things I need to fix on it, but it's definitely playable as it is now. Although the action is very high, and there's also some intonation problems.

For those that are interested about the specs;

Fender Japan body from the 90's

Warmoth (scalloped) neck w/ XJ frets and Sperzel locking tuners (locking tuners is a must!), and a graphite nut. I'm not sure graphite is the right way to go with nylon though, so I'll probably try something else.

Fender tremolo bridge with piezo pick-ups on the bridge saddles. The piezos are GraphTech's Ghost system, which also has MIDI out available.

The pick guard is very custom - i carved it out myself.

I'm going to build in a compressor (BOSS CS3) under the pickguard, and also a simple eq which will be controlled by pressing the volume knob. All powered by a 9V battery.

For now the strings are medium tension, but I think that causes some problems, so I'll try extra high tension too see if it plays better.

That's about it i guess! Just ask if you have any questions :)
