    Thank you....its a nice time of year with these in bloom...next i have to wire up the guard and mount neck... I had to wet sand and buff this pickguard to get a deep shine I'm going for a NOS vibe on this one......it's a process

    Beautiful guitar! I admit I winced when I saw it sitting on that rough gravel though. ;)

    Thanks for your concern but that's an optical illusion....After posting the flower pic I realized I almost forgot the finger route..

    Humble beginnings.... in an effort to save and recycle this body I needed to lighten it up a bit...I routed 3 tone pockets on the backside of the Alder/Pine body 20170531_214306-1.jpg with excellent results...

    There has been a delay in the build process... so I have decided to go ahead and apply a 20170816_172548-1.jpg
    few more clear coats to the neck because I have at least 30 more days to let it cure
