    I used a Fender neck pickup and a Bootstrap Original Recipe bridge pickup.

    A nice tort guard, couple of cool old knobs and Bob’s your uncle.

    It’s going to take a little tweaking but overall I’m very happy with it.

    Actually, ‘build’ is too strong of word. I didn’t really build anything. I just put some parts together. There are others who are truly masters of their craft that build great guitars. I’m not one of those guys.

    Same here. I am from the school of envision, acquire, and assemble; sometimes with a finish thrown in depending on the body. I still find it rewarding albeit not so challenging as for the scratch builders.

    Nice work there, enjoy it!
