Yes. Yes I did!
The body is brazilian walnut, I think. It was an offcut at the timber yard. The neck is ash. Most of the hardware is aluminium; me and my Dad made it on the milling machine he bought (he's getting into making guitar stuff). We made the nut, bridge and jack plate this way.
I decided to go for through-body stringing and it's resulted in the guitar being very resonant. Strumming the open G that I've got it tuned to makes a glorious BRRRRAAANG through a slightly overdriving amp. It's quite loud unplugged, actually.
It might seem like an unusual place for a badge on the back but then the screws for holding the P90 pickup onto the front were unusually long - a little bit of damage control that's ended up looking quite nice.
I inlaid it with abalone. Keen eyes can spot where I missed the dot with a file in this picture. The "A" badge on the back is also abalone (courtesy of my aunt who pinched a shell of it from a wedding decoration).
Here it is with its buddy. Now I just have to get my chops up to scratch!
That is really rather nice!
I want one too

In particular I'm talking about the routing, there is actually a repair on the back from when we were rounding the edge of the body and cut through into the jack plug hole.
One thing I've learnt from this is that I really do have to be mindful of what's on the other side of what I'm working on. I had problems with the jack plug hole, pickup screws and tuners all due to this. Sorted them now though, I must say I'm quite proud of it
That... is... glorious!
an astounding piece of work, you should be justifiably proud of that.
None of you seem to understand; I'm not locked in here with you, you'll all locked in here with me.

That's really nice. And in answer to the original question, yes, I'm pretty sure you did.
