Thanks Mark. Yes, the fretting is all done. I can't remember what size wire I used, but it's fairly beefy. I made my own version of Dan Erliwine's neck jig, and I bought the stew Mac slotted straightedge to help with leveling. I'll cover that part pretty soon. Definitely digging the Birdseye, it's not so severe that it overwhelms the grain, but it still has a lot of character. I especially like how symmetrical it ended up being on the higher frets (unplanned, it was a very nice surprise!). I'll post better pictures of the finished neck pretty soon.
