    I like the concept but I am not a fan of no pickguard.
    It NEEDS a Cabronita style cream pickguard or whatever matches the binding.

    Personally I don't care for the gold and maple neck, I think the hues clash, but it looks like a lovely build. Congratulations.

    Is this a custom shop model or partscaster?

    Looks cool, I considered building a similar partscaster with p90's, a rosewood board and relic finish. Hard to find a suitable body like that though.

    TBH, I'm not a fan. I think it needs a RW board and a black or white (cream?) pickguard.

    But that's just my taste. You enjoy it!

    I love it as is.
    What is that paint? Or did you buy it that way?

    It don't need no steenking pickguard. It needs plugged in and cranked.

    Thanks for likes and constructive comments dudes.

    She's not from the Fender CS. The body was made and finished by a great local luthier here in Reading, UK. The neck and bridge are Fender, Seymour Duncan pickup and Kluson deluxe tuners. That's about all the parts there are!

    Cheers
