    I'm late to this thread.

    As the owner and overseer of a recent large home-improvement project, I love the OSB, but I think the burst was a step in the wrong direction. Too traditional. It should have been that pour-on epoxy stuff they use for hatch-cover furniture, in basic "clear".

    And for the pickguard? Asphalt roofing shingle. You'll need to wear a leather work glove to play it of course.

    I think PVC pipe (complete with the numbering visible) would make for awesome binding on that.

    You can get the black duct (duck) tape and use that as a binding, that would be sweet.

    my other idea is stick with the pick guard you have or go with a hardened flat piece of leather.

    someone mentioned branding it which I love, if you don't brand the body then put the thin layer of OSB on the head and brand that with a name or initial.

    last series of ideas...................Go with the torched binding and a bit of the torched burst (it really adds something to the look) and see if you can get the metal pieces finished with a black oxide finish to give that made out of iron look, you can even use stovepipe black and toss them on the Bar-b-Que or in the oven on broil to bake it in so it does not wipe of.

    Marty,

    That is looking great. I like the traditional blackguard look on the very non-traditional body. I wouldn't change a thing.

    Sorry about the bump, but I just read ALL the way through this amazing old (before my time) thread, and I'm consumed by the question: how did it SOUND?

    I just think it needs a gig bag made from a blue tarp.

    And maybe a strap from that webbing they use for lawn furniture.
