Black Sunshine and the British Invader....
Both are kits that I built and customized.
Black Sunshine has a Free Way selector switch, neck and bridge pickups are Seymour Duncan Distortions (with Series / Split / Parallel toggle) , middle is a P-Rail (with Rail / Humbucker / P-90 toggle). CK pots.
Designed to sound like a Strat / Tele with an LP soul. Still waiting on the White Pearl Pickguard as the cream one just doesn't look right.
British Invader has Seymour Duncan Invader pickups (with Series / Split / Parallel toggle) and CK pots.
Designed as a very versatile LP (Heavy Metal, Jazz and in-between).
Both have many hours of hand rubbed oil finish, no poly whats-a-ma-call-it goo on these.

On the right my Luthier customised Tele with three pickups working as HHH or SHS with second mini tap switch. It includes a "Bridge and Neck" 5 way switch position.

I built this little solid-state amp as a gift for a friend. He's a senior citizen with a physical handicap, so the amp had to be relatively light.
This amplifier is unconventional in a few ways, with a class D power amp board, and a discrete front end with a mix of JFETs and bipolar junction transistors. There's an active one-knob "tilt" tone control, and a permanent EQ curve built in to the preamp to remove most of the usual solid-state harshness.
The speaker complement is unusual too - it uses two boom-box 6.5" speakers in a ported enclosure, both for light weight, and because my budget for building the amp was very tight. The grille-cloth is a dollar-store place mat. The handle is a Home Depot drawer-pull.
The monogrammed letters (the owner's initials) were 3D-printed by a friend, and I spray-painted the resulting print, then went over the raised letters with a metallic gold marker pen.
