    It looks great to me. Sorry about all the problems that you encountered but look at all the things that you learned in the process. Now its time to have some fun with it.

    Yeah, great job. Did you change the headstock colour? It looks same as the body now.

    It looks really nice. I really appreciate that you shared the intonation problem with us. I have nightmares about that exact issue. You have given me assurance that even if I did screw up, it is not the end of the world.

    Hi all, cheers for all the comments!

    Yes, I did learn a lot, hope to take some home from that. It was a bit frustrating at times, but I get a BFG (big grin) when I play it! I'll settle down for a few weeks until I start the next project.

    The headstock is still black, except the truss rod cover, which is same as the guitar. I kinda liked that solution. Bit o' contrast and all that.

    It's a small-ish can I got from Autobahn... can't remember the brand, but I still have some left. I'll take a pic when I go to the shed next time and post it. They had a HUGE range of colours on this, off the shelf.

    Cheers,

    Albert
