    Wow, very nice build!

    Currently have a Musikraft neck and MJT body on order myself. Plan to use the same bridge as well!

    Thank you! I think you'll be happy with all of them. I'm really impressed with the Rutters bridge.

    Working on that little finishing detail. I'm still deciding what I want the decal to say.

    Nice job. Now you can beat it up more to go with those vintage tuners.;)

    My cup of tea! Well done Sir and make sure a Fender decal don't go on that headstock. Go with something that is you.

    I like the fact that you chose to use a 5 screw pickguard and no screws either side of the bridge pickup.

    Nice job! I've wanted one of those Musikraft necks with a Brazilian Walnut board. I grew up near the boardwalk in Brooklyn and have a lot of great memories. It would be cool to have a neck made of salvaged wood from the boardwalk. How do you like the fretboard?
