The body was treated with zpoxy to harden the wood and fill the grain on the ash, then shellac, then tru oil. Micro mesh pads really helped to bring out the figuring in the ash. Bootstrap Palo Duros, Wilkinson bridge, 4-way switch and the pick guard is from decoboom. Planning to solder up electronics tomorrow and string it up.

    It's a beautiful guard, but with that wood I wonder what a clear one would look like.

    I considered it but the top veneer is very thin and the seam of the veneer between the pickups was sloppy so I decided to roll with the pick guard.
