Thanks for the input! I was thinking more light of some sort. Not sure what yet. I'm definitely not done with it. The headstock will most likely get a full brass plate etched with some Victorian/industrial design.
The bridge is attached to bare wood. Funny thing though, I figured the leather would tame the sustain a bit. But it doesn't seem to have done so. I'll reserve further judgement for when the electronics are installed.
I was thinking a MM$ would be a good choice for a pup too.
Amazon has another plasma ball that is about an inch bigger but I'm not sure where I would put more batteries. It's already not a light guitar. I don't want to weigh it down too much more seeing as I am trimming it with more brass. I still want to be able to play it comfortably.
Still looking for bare brass knobs. If you see any, let me know please.
Look for more updates next week when I do the etching. If anyone is interested in the etching process I'll be happy to post photos. Lemme know.
