    It's not perfect - the joints don't line up exactly, but I'm happy with it. I'll definitely do better the next time. Now, all I have left is to route the control cavities out a little bit, and it'll be ready for masking and paint.

    Looks well stuck on. Glue or acetone?

    Looks way better than my first (or second) attempt.

    Good on you! I haven’t summoned the courage to try binding yet. Nice project.

    Looks good. Does that just get taped off for painting?

    Yup, exactly. I'll mask it the best I can, and then scrape off any bleeds. So far, so good. I'm terrified of the fret level. But I was terrified of the binding, too, and while it's not perfect, it worked out okay.
