    Warmoth pro neck (Gonçalo Alves with Pao Ferro board)
    Ash body
    Gotoh titanium bridge
    SD little 59 bridge pup
    SD A2 neck pup
    Walnut pick guard (I think?)

    Pretty sweet guitar. Light weight. Sounds killer.

    The neck is hard to photo. It has lots of flame and grain and details.

    Have you tried burnishing the back of the neck? I polished mine super smooth. Works really well on the exotic hardwoods.

    Sweet guitar!

    I have never burnished the neck. I just use lemon oil.

    Was the Wudtone easy to use? You got great results! I'm really interested in trying out Wudtone, but there isn't a lot of customer feedback on their finishes.
