    Nice job, dude! Love the burst.

    Do you ever have any problem with the finish sinking? You can feel the growth rings on my bodies after they've been finished a year. And that's using wood thats hung around the shop for a few years.

    Proof that Scatter Lee is not cut from your usual mold. I use the pin registry system and still manage to get them out of line :(

    Either way, I love the body, and that burst looks awesome. I have been starting to like plain maple more and more, so I am liking the neck choice as well!

    Beautiful work as always, my friend. :)

    Nice to see you treading the boards again, it's been a while.
