As the title states this is my first build. I went with the following: Warmoth Lightweight Swamp Ash body finished with a shellac base coat and satin lacquer top coat. Warmoth quartersawn maple neck with rosewood board. 10-16” radius. Sperzel licking tuners Dimarzio True Velvet pickups with classic wiring. Gotoh “in tune” bridge with compensated brass saddles. I’m still waiting on the bridge, screws and other parts you don’t see to come in but I’m close to the end. I did about 4 light layers of lacquer over the shellac so I’m going to give it a good few weeks to harden up before use.
