My first build. I sourced most parts from small talented garage home based builders. Neck from Michigan, body from North Carolina pickups from New Jersey control paid from Illinois. Only the tuners and bridge were none US and they were from Japan.My amp tech is from NY also works out of is home. Sounds amazing and looks good too.

I flipped the control plate for the volume swells. I'm not great at that yet but I will learn hopefully. Bill Kirchin style

Really nice looking guitar. Love the opaque finish. It would’ve been a shame to hide that beautiful grain.
Opaque: not able to be seen through; not transparent.

"the windows were opaque with steam"

I think you meant transparent.
