    A place called Axerus, never heard of them before but a TDPRI user guided me there haha

    It's sea foam green but to me looks more surf in person which is fantastic

    Cheers

    Here's the guitar which is donating the parts, falling out of love with it is hard but I'm keeping the body just in case.

    Nice Guitar - I have had a Thinline body from Axesrus a while back - and I have been thinking about the green one - yours possibly convinced me to jump!

    The green - 5lb is good - I don;t think I would feel right with one of those Pauwlonia (however you spell it) lightweight bodies

    cheers

    Man, I love that color. It would look amazing w/ rosewood board IMHO. But either way it will look great. Good luck with it.

    I wish I was good with electronics so I could get this thing all ready

    Such a strange colour though in different lighting

    Thanks for posting the pics, Gary. All the pix on their site are watermarked, so it's good to see what the actual body looks like - looks really nice.

    Post more pics as the build progresses...

    Single ply 5-hole white guard please! I know its not period accurate - but to me, that can't be beat. Either way, nice work:)
