Got a couple weeks off work and 10 instruments worth of parts laying around so I built these bad boys; the Mark VI's of Biscuit Tin builds. Let me talk you through it.

The Tins are the same and the chocolate covered nut selection was delicious, both loaded with a pair of Piezo Disc pickups, a single volume pot and jack. the bridges are top loading and the framework wood for both are lengths of Pine I planed and then hand sanded.

The necks are from my two SpongeBob Strat builds, the bodies are being used for other projects, but the right handed necks came in handy for this. both are Maple with a separate 22 fret Maple fretboard.

The only real difference between these two guitars are the colours on the headstocks and the neck and bridge mounting; both of which have caused problems with string height, but otherwise both are awesome.

I have a rule, If I make it lefty, its mine and its right handed, it has to go, so these are to go.

What you guys think.

Ok, I've got both of these fully strung up now and can tell you guys they sound awesome. the smallness of the tins has done nothing to hinder the sound when played acoustically and the Piezo's on the inside do there jobs very nicely.
