Just wanted to show off my recently finished build, the body is poplar and Plaid Sabbath made it back when he was selling bodies (from the reranch forums). I made the curly maple neck and bought the fretboard with inlay off eBay some time ago. I used the tutorial on Talkbass for fiber optic fret markers (I used 1/16 brass tube and somewhat larger fiber optic strands). Gold evo fretwire, the finish is actually Target Coatings EM1000 sealer mixed with PaintwithPearl, I liked the way it came out so much I decided not to clear it and it's held up well. Kind of a matte metallic gold. Aaron at Rumpelstiltskin pickups wound me up a 13k Alnico V for the bridge, I unofficially dub it the "Rumpelstiltskin Nightmare" it's hot, clear yet beefy enough to sound close to a humbucker. The pickguard was laser cut by Ponoko, and the leds are fired with an AA battery holder under the control plate, the control plate is fastened by machine screws and threaded inserts for easy removal. Lastly just wanted to show something I am working on this minute, it's TCP Kamen Blue .008 flake being shot with Target's EM9000 through a harbor freight gun over a blue/white mixol EM1000 base. Coming out decent.
