    I actually finished this thing months ago but never put strings on it.

    GFS parts all around-
    2 post bridge
    Locking staggered height tuners
    Active HSH setup
    Poplar body
    Maple/rosewood neck

    Neck, check out the birdseyes, not bad on a $29 neck

    I used tru-oil on the neck
    Body is grey primer followed by multicolor glitter paint.

    I'm liking the sound of the pups so far.

    Looks like it totals at about $275 all in. I really like the feel of the tru oil on the neck,very smooth.

    Very nice indeed. You can't beat a bit of glitter and that neck looks fantastic.

    Here's a couple of the back. My daughter just played with it a bit and agrees that it sounds sweet.

    I'm shocked at how stratty the humbuckers sound.
